Horrible Experience

Sales - Commission (Former Employee)

I worked at Conn's full-time for less than a year

ProsYou will learn & become a better person for your next job or you will stay and become a horrible person like the other unhappy people there.

ConsThere are no consistencies from store manager so workers are at each others throats. Managers change their stories to suit the situation and will tell people anything while treating workers rude & condescendingly in front of everyone customers or other workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to anonymously investigate the store management in all of your Arizona stores.

Good ole boy mentality buy upper management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Conn's

ProsCan make a lot of money if you put the work in. I made a great living for 6 years.

Horrible place to work

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Laredo, TX

I worked at Conn's full-time for less than a year

ProsGood money only during the holiday season.

ConsNo time to spend with family and friends. Management is only good to you as they get their bonus. As soon as they get their bonus for recruiting you they will try to fire you. If you have family this is not the place to work. It's hard to get days off since it's a computerized schedule . Schedule is the worst thing ever and current management does not care about anything only you're sales.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe are humans not ants

Beware of This company

Manager (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Conn's full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCompany is very successful company.

ConsThis company is sales driven! If you don't make sales you get fired. If you don't want to work 60-70 hrs a week then don't apply. They make their management is distribution work 15+ hrs a day to meet demands. Company does not do well with compensating lower management and regular workers. Only top managers are compensated well in this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like human beings instead of slaves for profits!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
