    I have been working at Farmers Home Furniture part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discounts" if you get to be there for more than a year.

    Cons

    Management does not care about store sales. They care about finance dollars made in the back end with high finance rates.
    They only have one computer for a sales person to use and it has not been updated in years. program is very slow.
    Store Manager does not bring furniture that is for sale in the sales flyer. customer get upset that they would have to order by putting down 10% of the sales and waiting a week.
    The store manager is a bureaucrat and not a sales manager.
    High goals for sales consultants that work part time.
    No comercials are run in the local area. and no flyers mailed to future customers. the company still thinks that word of mouth is the best marketing tool.
    My store was very ugly and outdated by other furniture standards.
    Customer service is horrible!!
    Stay away from this employer!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guy's need to visit your competitors and take them seriously. We do not live in the 1960's.
    RAC Acceptance Now is in every major furniture store and they do not let business walk away because you want to make a quick buck on the in house financing. Stay in small towns with less that 200,000 customers if you don't want to compete with real furniture stores. STOP HARRASSING SALES CONSULTANT'S FOR YOUR FAILURES!!!

    Pros

    Great Products, One of the best Sales training systems in the system. Easy financing program to explain to customers and quick delivery times.

    Cons

    The downsides are that there is no benefits or insurance for part time employees, which can be expensive if you need medical attention or medication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that employees can receive and give 360 degree coaching. Have more representatives from vendor companies come and train staff of product.
