    I worked at Mor Furniture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Simple system focused on being good at its specialty, value furniture delivered today or tomorrow with amazing customer service. They are getting there doing all the right things and growing right to become the best everyday furniture retailer in the US.

    Cons

    Retail hours, commission pay in sales not for everyone, and the company relies very heavily on its frontline employees to make up for the cost of providing world class service at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the direction and focused on getting to the end in mind.

    If you are good at selling and can learn an old Dos based system fast, you'll do well.

    I have been working at Mor Furniture

    Pros

    Decent pay

    Fair system of getting ups, (when it's followed)

    Great employee discounts

    Company tries somewhat to change for the better

    It's difficult to get fired as long as your hitting your quota and on time.

    There is a monthly gaurantee pay with s rather easy minimum.

    There's room for growth.

    Cons

    Long hours

    Your management sell too, so there's a huge conflict of interest.

    Employees can get away with a lot, so you have to stand up for yourself quite a bit.

    The medical/dental sucks.

    You have to work with a severely outdated computer system.

    Top sellers can "get away with murder".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold your employees accountable. It brings morale down in the workplace when people get away with wronging others.

    Maybe eliminate or lessen the conflict of interest between management and employees. It's hard to trust your boss when he's also a competitor with you constantly throwing around the "manager" card with your guests. It's especially demoralizing when the guests you have worked with a lot come back and ask for your manager instead.

    Go back to your founding principles.

    Pros

    Good advertising. ..great prices. ..OK money...

    Cons

    To many to really count. No respect for sales team. Company culture is ' you should be happy to have a job.' Hours are ridiculous. Open to close. You are treated like a third citizen. You have to recite a very intrusive great 30- 45 seconds that you must say verbatim to every customer. The General Manager will hide and watch every move you make. The sales climate is hostile. Sales managers are selling sales people that have leverage above you. Salesman team up to gain advantage over others. It is not frowned upon but encouraged. Think twice before diving into a job that will have you looking for another. Extremely high turn of employees. Note...I am not one to ever blog negatives. I have 20 years experience in the business from sales to sales manager. Salesman beware. ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It really doesn't matter what I would suggest. Apparently the model works for them. The cost is worth it.

    Pros

    The pay for having only a High School diploma is great.
    They create a friendly work environment
    Easy to meet sales goals
    Compensation has endless possibilities SPIF's, Add on Merchandise, etc.

    Cons

    Hours are intense. Work about 60 hours a week if not more in order to meet sales goals
    You can be waiting for hours to get a guests
    Not allowed to sit down
    Get rid of employees for not making 3 month running sale goals.
    Constant stress about reaching your goals
    You don't make your rolling goals for three months you are fired...end of story

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to figure out a schedule which actually gives people time with their families.
    Don't fire people based off of a few bad months. You get rid of a lot of great talent that way.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money,

    Cons

    You get taxed like hell. So if your check is 4k, expect to get 2,700 or something like that! You don't get a W2, it's like your in business for yourself. Poor vacation hours. Poor company values. Work-life balance...more like work-NO LIFE balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work one weekend a month, and 3 days late, and 2 days early off by 6 pm or something. Better vacation allowance.

    Pros

    The people and culture are great

    Cons

    The hours and merchandise availability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge your sales staff off of their sales performance instead of delivered sales you're letting quality talent go when you should be keeping them.

    I worked at Mor Furniture full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Unlike a car dealership the environment is very warm and friendly so long as you are selling. They offer a blanket for any month you don't hit quota, and that was a real plus for the slower months so long as you don't make a habit of it.

    Cons

    No matter how good you are, if you don't hit quota 3 months averagely, your done and they don't hire previous sales employees. Not a good job during a recession unless you are a sales-God.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better understand of the economy, would be a start. The recession weeded out some decent sales people and maybe that didn't mean anything to the company, but you can't sell when no one is walking in the door. And that should have been understood better.

    Pros

    Great commission structure and pay for a job that requires only a HS Diploma. I made $80k to years in a row. My home life suffered as I worked 5-6 12 hour days each week the first year. Less the second year.

    Cons

    Management is old school. Long hours to hit commission goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent and promote.... No carrots, no strings... Have some flexibility.
