    Pros

    It was a very excellent work experience. The people there were very nice to work with. The management i felt, cared for no only their customers but there employees as well.

    Cons

    Some customers were not very friendly which made my job more difficult to perform. Working on commission could be very trying.

    Advice to Management

    The furniture needs and should be better quality. Make salesmen salary more competitive so that they are more motivated and worker turnover is decreased.
