I have been working at Steinhafels full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good pay for a retail job. The job is to meet and talk to new people every day, so can be a lot of fun.

Cons

Sales management. They believe in the meat-grinder approach to staffing with motivation through write-ups. The bottom 20% of each department gets a warning or a write up every month (whether they've hit their minimums or not) as "performance management." Also, commission-only sales so you always feel the need to watch your back. If that weren't bad enough, the Steinhafels want their *salaried* managers to sell a third as much as salespeople, pitting the management against the sales force, so you again have to watch your back. Even the top salespeople don't feel appreciated by this company.

Advice to Management

They wouldn't take any suggestions seriously anyway. ESPECIALLY not from a salesperson.

    Pros

    Store environment is beautiful, very well-cleaned and designed. Good employee discounts on furniture. Company will spare no expense to make sure the employees are given what tools they need to complete their job to the best of their abilities.

    Cons

    Work atmosphere is negatively competitive due to sales quotas and poor market. Some on the management team try to rule with an iron fist.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more positive feedback and encouragement, acknowledge jobs well-done. Use constructive criticism along with professional respect that can promote personal growth rather than turn employees off.
