    Pros

    You have the chance to control your own income by how hard you work. Management generally supports your growth.

    Cons

    At times, commission sales can be hard. Management could do better job making sure sales people aren't dumping customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to leverage employees more in finding out information that will increase their happiness and therefore effort when dealing with customers.

    Pros

    401k with Profit Sharing matching if you exceed 6%. A shift PTO accrued every month.

    Cons

    Leadership is just miscommunicative, the managers generally don't follow their own values that they require us to follow. They basically limit your pay raise to a certain percentage annually unless you just choose to do poor work meanwhile they encourage you to do 5 star work so they still reward you like the next guy doing average work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty is a core value, how about every level of management actually following it.

    Pros

    Great values and solid business practices...Not one employee laid off in the history of the 77 year old company.

    Cons

    Minimal commission margins for sales staff relative to other companies in the retail industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide competitive commission margins to sales staff.

  7. So far it has been decent but it could be better if the higher up decision makers took advice from underlings.

    I have been working at Nebraska Furniture Mart

    Pros

    Decent starting pay, 401k benefits, insurance, friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Have to be very cautious, higher up decision makers do not take advice from underlings, and drug test every time you break something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually take the time to really make your workers feel like they have a say because they're doing the labor work.

    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    Pay excellent.
    Great hours.
    Tuition reimbursement.
    Off major holidays.

    Cons

    No one works together to accomplish the greater goal. More concerned with themselves than the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit micromanaging. You cannot be involved in every single situation, that is what your managers are for.

    Former Employee - Content Coordinator in Omaha, NE

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

    Pros

    There is a real family feel at NFM. Most of the people that work there have been there for a long time because they take care of their employees and it is a solid work environment. There is low turnover and if you work hard there are always positions that you can move up to.

    Cons

    It is a retail environment so the hours can be somewhat difficult. Very conservative which can be a negative but they usually make sound business decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to push the envelope and be on the cutting edge. You need to do away with the internal DOS operating system because in the future that could be a potential nightmare.
