    Pros

    The opportunity to work in a diverse work environment. Benefits are expensive but excellent.

    Cons

    Fluctuating work hours. Inconsistent work schedules. Low morale atmosphere. Poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order for employees to be successful ensure that they are qualified, trained and provided with the proper working tools and/or equipment. How can employees be held accountable if they are not provided with the necessities to complete their tasks?

    Pros

    Still waiting? Haven't seen any, as of yet.

    Cons

    Only paid when furniture is delivered to customer, and that could take Ashley 3 months to deliver. Also commission only, base can fall to minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn people skills and you will keep good employees.
