    A great environment for any sales professional to strengthen skills. May or may not be a career.

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall, family owned company that is a leader in its region and market. Owners and executive staff are personally vested and are present often.
    Being a fully commission based employer wages are 100% up to the individual and with constant training around products a sales individual can certainly attain personal growth.

    ConsAs with any commission based sales environment it is an every man for himself type of sales floor that really requires an individual to have a strong drive to succeed.

    Retail furniture requires working every weekend and 100% of the holidays (outside of Christmas Day and Easter). Even Postal and Government holidays become days of high traffic anticipation so full staff is required to be present from store open to store close.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is very hands-on with its staff. If there were anything to be aware of is for them to remember what its like to be on the sales floor.

    Alternating weekend shifts during slow seasons would allow for a greater family/life balance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
