    Pros

    All of my managers are kind hard working people. I had a TON of great training and mentoring. They spend a lot of time helping you learn. Great values and morals which is hard to find in furniture stores.

    Cons

    Still kinda feel pressured to sell since we are measured in our numbers.

    Pros

    They pay you weekly, but keep the benefits low because they rarely have full time employees.

    Cons

    Next to no training for the positions. Awful scheduling. Inexperienced management. If you look at the leads, very few of them exceed the age of 25 years old. They paid younger newbies more than older workers. YES... they blatently discriminate, and if you mention the unfairness. you are gone. AND OF COURSE THE OPERATIONS, HR, and STORE managers EXPECT you to respect them all the while they lie to you. They provide food on the weekends,..but most of the time, it's awful, and it's gone by the time the later shift needs to take their lunch.

    Advice to Management

    you are all legends in your own mind. You should all be fired,.. And I mean FIRED. this company is nothing more than a ghetto barn full of furniture. You are NO COSCO of the name brands. Your store is cheap,and most of the people that work for you can barely read and write.

    Pros

    Free lunch on weekends, weekly pay, non-commision

    Cons

    Horrible management. Leads are too busy with their sales that they don't have time to train the newbies. New hires are expected to be proficient on the floor within two months or are otherwise booted. You maintain this job by the amount of sales you make, and how much you get out of a person. Which completely disregards one of the company's core values. What a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Work as a team, help one another out. Take the time to train new hires. Stop treating employees like numbers.

  5. Terrible!!! The call center environment is terrible. As well as the company policies, the way the departments operate.

    Pros

    Good discount on mattress once you become permanent

    Cons

    They promote world class customer service. But all the care about Is the volume of calls dropped and keeping that volume low. In return they expect us to handle a call in 4 minutes there are customer issues that cannot be resolved in 4 minutes. Copany's policies are sometimes unfair to the customer. Accommodation is terrible when it comes to making thing right for the customer.80% of the calls that come in are upset customers ready to scream your ear off. Not to mention the customers that have no reason to be mad but are terribly rude. At the end of the day the call center reps are the ones that take all the heat.

    Pros

    Free lunch on the weekend, open door to managers, consistent hours.

    Cons

    Seems to be no pay raises. Not too much over time except when scheduled.

  7. Good company that seems to care about their employees

    Pros

    The company does take care of their employees - catered lunch on the weekends, good hours. They are big on employee surveys and knowing how their upper management is performing.

    Cons

    The pay definitely leaves something to be desired. They have pay bands (caps) for all the positions, so you can only make so much in your position. So if you get hired towards or at the top of your pay band, you won't increase. Perhaps it's a way to motivate people to move up - who knows.

    Advice to Management

    Show top performers they are appreciated more often

    Pros

    If you love furniture and a fast out of control non comm sales floor!

    Cons

    This company has no morals or values. They run a clearing house of people at the unemployment line! They sell you on a dream of the best place to work with free lunch, amazing bonus programs and training! Well.... The training never happens, your tossed to the wolves on the sales floor and see if you survivor!! The managers are over whelmed and don't have training either!! They don't even have product knowledge!! Can ask them for help!

    Advice to Management

    Get some trained managers and training in the store!!

    Pros

    Company as a whole is very motivated, but also creates a fair and balanced work environment. If you're a hard worker and pay attention to detail you will succeed here.

    Cons

    Fast growing, upper management could be more experienced.

    Advice to Management

    More office perks... like coffee and water.
