    Pros

    Friendly Customers and that's about all.

    Cons

    They don't want to pay benefits they will fire you before your 90 days are up and give all your sales to another experienced staff member.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am a very talented Residential Planner the way you treated me was unfair from the beginning. Please don't do what you did to me to anyone else in the future.

    I worked at Bassett Furniture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This position is commission based and gives you the opportunity to earn uncapped income.

    Cons

    The biggest con is rule that if you are unable to make your sales quota for three consecutive months its an automatic termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would encourage upper management to care more for their employees.

    I have been working at Bassett Furniture full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth and success. Good product, solid marketing, easy to sell. Training is available both from the team and online, with continuous updates so we have all the information we need.

    Cons

    In a commission based environment, there is not as much consistency when you first start. It takes a while to build a book of business. Work/life balance is difficult, since working weekends and holidays is essential.

    I have been working at Bassett Furniture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Training is in line with current design trends and styles.
    Tools include up-to-date room planning programs, upholstery dressing programs, and pricing schedules.
    There is very little back-biting or tension between designers or sales reps. Friendly environment.
    Management listens and responds to questions and needs. If you need a day off for personal business, it is granted, and your manager steps in to fill your position.
    Commissions are paid promptly twice per month (on what is sold, NOT delivered. YEA!)

    Cons

    weekends, but hey, we all know retail requires it, because that's when most clients can visit as husband and wife.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    office supplies are expensive, but please... give me a highlighter.

    I worked at Bassett Furniture part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot and got to know the staff really well, we were a great team. the quality of the product really made the job easier

    Cons

    outdated lengthy processes for paperwork and basic CRM. the checkout procedure is ridiculous which made customers agitated at times. customer service in atlanta needs to be renewed-staff-wise.

    Pros

    Great company with secure foundation. Extremely professional management. Salary is up to you, work hard and you can make 70k per year, they give you the tools and training to be a success.

    Cons

    Like all retail, you must work all weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The company is always improving and expanding its services as well as it's product. Great training, understands that if consultants are a success the company is a success. Consider closing on Sundays and I would be happy to work a six day week.
