    Pros

    Enjoyed my co-workers. Everyone did their best to help each other make the sale. No back biting. Got to use interior design skills.

    Cons

    Not enough floor "shadowing". All training was done on the computer and then they put you on the floor. Management says they prefer employees with no sales experience, but trust me; you do not want to do high-end sales without any retail experience. Store manager had a terrible temper, was sometimes rude to my customers and was NOT helpful in closing sales!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    REQUIRE previous sales experience! Hire people to tag and re-tag the furniture (per each weekly sales event) and to do inventory instead of expecting salespeople to do it.
