Pros

Commission based pay so you have some control on your paycheck.

Cons

Managers-In-Training drive to all corners of the map, to cover stores and they are never reimbursed for travel. Also, you are required to attend meetings outside of your regular schedule and you do not earn overtime pay.
You will not advance if you are not part of the "in crowd".

Advice to Management

Set proper expectations.

    Pros

    Strong Corporate culture, excellent thorough training program, continual product training, employee discounts on quality products, and a chance to work for a market leader in the industry.

    Cons

    Retail hours and retail sales environment - even in the medium to large stores, you're waiting for the sale to come to you. Lots of down time. If you need something super high-energy, this is probably not for you.

    Pros

    The people. You meet new and interesting people every day, and the co-workers are a blast. They walk you through everything, and show what you need to focus on. Easily the best sales job I've ever had,

    Cons

    The only real downside is trying to remember everything you can about the beds we have on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep working and do all you can to get where you want to get.
