Here is ther real Bobs way

Sales (Former Employee) Rockville, MD

ProsMoney opportunity , possible advancement, Good benefits, Very nice showroom, Zero tolerance for violence, cleanliness, OK atmosphere managers and sales people were friendly , selection of Bedding and furniture , and Rentacenter kiosk.

ConsLack of sales and floor rules enforcement. Payscale average. upper level advancement, Safety- some accessories and furniture items were precariously set for display. Even though I gave atmosphere as a [ pro] there were still arguements and bad language issues that went unchecked by managment. This was in comparison to other retail stores I had worked for. One on one's between managers and sales people were brief, not alot of coaching and role play. SAP system was hard to work with. It was originally designed for NASA and should have stayed there.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnforce sales and floor rules. More 1 on 1 training. Improve and streamline SAP.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
