Pros

You get Sunday and one other day off. Things are pretty consistent from day to day. You will feel better about yourself after you see some of the people they lease to, even more so if you go to their house. This job will suck but you will learn a lot about how to manage which should make your resume a lot better.

Cons

Long days. Pay is just too low for the work you do. Health Insurance is awful. Your deductible is so high it's not worth paying the 70 a week. (family coverage). As a sales manager, you have to handle everything in the store. (service, show room and sales) Not easy and will wear you out. This is not a long term career; their is no one in our district that has been here longer than five years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm sure it would cost more but most of your stores need a part time employee to ease the burden on the rest of the staff. SEI must look at their benefits. You cannot expect good talent to kill themselves and then offer them low pay and garbage health insurance. Your computer system is so outdated it's hard to believe that your tech guys have not told you what a waste the current system is and how much cash it costs you.

    Pros

    Salary after you become GM.
    Discount on furniture, specially mattresses.

    Cons

    Hours (they are not long but let say as a GM you open the store at 8 am and you close the store after last truck gets back at 9 pm)
    Pressure from regional because he is getting rammed by VP.
    Consistant changes in renewals procedure.
    Inventory, audits preparation, deposits before 12 pm, etc etc
    As a GM you have no control and everything is dictated by RM.
    Loading, unloading and collection specially returns of furniture from upset customers is a huge issue.
    No diversity.
    Its always who you know compare to what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice at all, I was with them for 7 years and worked on all positions, I miss the money but definitely love the family time I have now.
