    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Lots of potential to make a lot of money being retail and all but have a hard time when the floor is flooded

    Cons

    The hours are long and hard and commission rates change and are made harder to obtain and working every holiday is hard

    Advice to Management

    To be able to hit commission bonuses better by not flooding the floor so often and having more of the right product in stock

    Pros

    Good pay fun atmosphere free food lots of customers good products lots of stock great sales repeat customers fun people

    Cons

    Long hours lots of menial work at the end of the day so much walking that it equates to 7-10 miles per day. Poor management because of their condescending attitudes most have very little education.

    Advice to Management

    Help out new hires without the poor attitude. Control the shark tank. Control the harassment between employees ...you can be sued for not doing so. Stop letting the old crew run off new hires

    Pros

    Pay can be good if you work your tail off. 401k and medical options available

    Cons

    Long shifts. Holidays and weekends are mandatory

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire on so many associates. The sales floor is too crowded


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

    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 Management

    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 Management

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


  9. Very pleasant experience overall

    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 Management

    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.


  10. Long hours, no weekends off, no holidays off, no holiday pay. Expect 60-65hrs/wk.

    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 Management

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


  11. Great people good culture

    Pros

    The people and culture are great

    Cons

    The hours and merchandise availability

    Advice to Management

    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.
