    Pros

    Great place to work if you are lazy and want to do just enough to earn an okay living.

    Cons

    Showroom is flooded with salespeople, and at times you may only see 3 to 6 customer during a day's shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take feedback from staff more seriously, and hold individuals accountable, not the staff as a whole.

    I worked at Bob's Discount Furniture full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Money 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.

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Enforce sales and floor rules. More 1 on 1 training. Improve and streamline SAP.

    Positive Outlook
