    Pros

    Being a commission based job, you have unlimited growth and depending on how hard you work is how successful you will be. Furnitureland is growing tremendously even during the economy. We are the largest in our industry and being family own makes it great to work here!

    Cons

    A challenge could be working commission because it is not for everyone.

    Pros

    They definitely give you the necessities to expand your business and to promote yourself. This is a great job if you want to be an interior designer- it can work as a stepping stone to your own business and can be eye opening to the details of an interior designer's job. The benefits of this is that you don't have to pay for your own marketing or for your own space to work in- Furnitureland provides it all for you, they even provide you with the clients. You're also put onto a team of other designers- I think the team setting helps you to learn the job at first. The people are also super encouraging and helpful too.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are finding your own clients- you always have clients who walk through the door but developing a customer base and finding your own customers can be a challenge at first.

    Not a bad place to get your feet wet, but there is very little room to move up.

    Pros

    consistent work, you get to be your own boss on the road, meet interesting people and travel the country

    Cons

    very hard, labor intensive work, the middle managers can be a little condescending towards you, the is no bonus or raises....ever. company charges you for any damages done to furniture, customers home, or equipment. costly health insurance. no room to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to give a raise once in a while, a guy that has been doing the job for 10 years should not make the same as a guy that has been doing it 2 weeks. create some sort of safety bonus or retention program to keep good talent inside the company. you are bleeding good people.

    Pros

    The people are all for the most part great people. Your fellow employees make the work worth it. The work is steady.

    Cons

    The pay is below average. There is also little chance to move up the company. There are usually very little bonuses if they even have them.

    I have been working at Furnitureland South

    Pros

    It is a decent place to work. As with any place, there are up's and down's... don't expect to move up within the company often/easily. Those ranks tend to stay filled.

    Cons

    Management often times seems disconnected from the employee's. It's a family owned company but it seems that over the years, it's slowly felt more and more like a 'big corporation' rather than a family company. It's a decent place to work for but unless you're one of the few lucky 'insiders' don't expect to have a long rewarding career.
