    I worked at Nebraska Furniture Mart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good group of people to work with and work for. Advancement opportunities if interested. Enjoyed working for company.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons. They are flexible with your personal life happenings and gave enough lead way for you to be human. They had incentives to excel in your position and within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved the management I worked for and with.

    Pros

    Great managers who certainly know how to look after their people. Coworkers are awesome and always willing to lend a hand. Great process as far a operations go.

    Cons

    To much politics in upper management. Outdated tech which consumes hours of work.

    Pros

    BeOne- Everyone knows that NFM is a family owned business but what they most people do not know is that "the family" behind the business is not only the Blumkins. The family behind the business is composed of each and every employee and their families. Few people understand the concept of BeOne and what it means to be a family. If you want a taste of what it means to be surrounded by the best people in this community, get a job at NFM.

    Cons

    It is a retail store and with retail comes issues that cannot be avoided. This is not a con, it is an opportunity for NFM to show customers what we are made of from the inside out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep doing the great job and keep growing :-)

    Pros

    Keep employees in the loop on things, get to be invovled in many aspects of the company. The discount was nice on furniture too!

    Cons

    Someone limiting as far as growth potential and salary. I left due to lack of opportunity to get more money and the retail business is a different animal.

    Pros

    Strong family focus, customers always come first, More than half my family works here!! Great benefits and always doing constant reviews to make sure they are competitive. Also the employee discount is one of the best among the competition!

    Cons

    Easy to spend your paycheck on items from here, large campus to walk, only one food court place to choose from although its Subway so its not to bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you carry your culture into your new Texas destination!

    I have been working at Nebraska Furniture Mart full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have currently worked at NFM for 9.5 years. I have held 4 different positions (yes we promote within) and have been challenged in all of them. I have amazing benefits (we have chosen NFM's over my spouses due to better coverage and lower cost). I get three weeks a year in vacation. I am trusted to work on my own. My manager is great with feedback and presenting new opportunities. I have AMAZING coworkers - they are the best and I enjoy seeing them each work day. I get a call on my birthday and anniversary from Ron - there are not many CEO's who do that for every employee (we have over 2000). I started as a lead cashier in 2003, finished my degree and have found a great place to continue growing my career!

    Cons

    We are a retail location so the work never stops (we have staff here from 4 am until 10:30 pm). It is great to be needed :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on with the personal touches. It is nice to work for a company that cares about you. You give managers the opportunity to build relationships with their teams so they can push them to the next level or prep them for the next position.

    I have been working at Nebraska Furniture Mart full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been with the Mart since 2003 (currently 9 years) and have had several positions in different departments. The companies culture remains consistent throughout every department I have worked in. The Mart treats their staff amazing well, and even though it's size is close to 3,000 employees, still has a very "family" atmosphere.

    Cons

    Really can not think of any at this time. Treats staff well, is incredibly customer focused (one reason for success), and has high ethical standards.
