    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirited company that asks you to work hard but allows you to succeed if you do

    Cons

    Can be physically and mentally demanding but that's not necessarily a con if you're up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with the team more to better understand how high-level decisions impact the day-to-day operations before implementing change that affects that segment of the business.

    Pros

    you can get easy days, management normally does not pressure you a lot. you get to see a lot of places and meet many different people. its exciting.

    Cons

    its physically tiring, you have to constantly lift furniture.. drive a lot, and work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    this job, if well managed can be pretty easy, as long as they know how to properly divide the work between the trucks. sometimes they might try to minimize the amount of trucks going out, and they end up over killing some of the workers, when they have other co-workers and home just relaxing. i say its always best to add another truck and divide the work so that its easy for everyone, instead of packing 3 trucks to the max and have them drive around the world.

    I worked at Brook Furniture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have the flexibility to manage your accounts the way you see fit. Time management and flexibility are very important. Little micromanaging here just make sure you are getting the job done and the numbers are there. Team playing is a big component. You may be working on your own but you are supported by a team.

    Cons

    While there is some flexibility in policies and procedures, other issues often receive no second look and business can be lost to other "price" aggressive competitors. With no flexibility on cost, customers go elsewhere. This also has caused issues with commissions going down or being done away with completely.

    Advice to Management

    Team moral needs to be kept up in ways that produce more activity equaling more commissions. To reduce or restrict commission might produce more productive work if approached right or more likely reduce ambition when customers turn to the competitor because of higher prices.

    Pros

    -great if you liked being creative, got to "play" with furniture selections for customers -the people that work there are great -regular business hours (no weekends) -most of the clients were easy to work with

    Cons

    -sales goals based on previous years sales+percentage. -lack of inventory in order to fulfill orders -the daily scramble to get paperwork from customers completed in time for next day deliveries

    Advice to Management

    listen to feedback from employees in regards to whats really happening with sales
