I worked at Freedom Furniture full-time for less than a year
Pros – Light work load, and decent equipment to work with, all servers centrally located
Cons – Stores nationwide and no local support at stores
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Freedom Furniture part-time for more than a year
Pros – Nice people to work with. Atmosphere depends on the store you work at, some stores better run than others, depending on the store manager. Good training, both on line system and personalised. Can also request specific personal (on to one) training. If it is a second household income, good work-life balance. Management are trying.
Cons – Pay not great, high expectations for mediocre return. Not much scope for career advancement in Melbourne (only operation- or store manager) as head-office is in Sydney where there are more possibilities.
As an only income job, it is difficult as a part-timer (less and less full-time jobs are offered) as hours per week can vary and sometimes hours can be cut without warning resulting in a greatly reduced income.
Advice to Senior Management – Please listen more to employees, they are the ones talking to the customers and know what they would like. MD approachable, but often non committal, which makes it frustrating.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
