    I have been working at Penny Mustard Furnishings full-time

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, positive workplace, open to advancement, good pay for industry, very strong company financially. Middle management is easy to talk to and works to help support you. Very detailed training and ongoing updates to industry practices.

    Cons

    Limited by size of company to offer benefits, closed minded to suggestions offered, divide between sales and office employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand customer service, expand benefits, develop more incentives for top performers, and take away punishments from office staff towards the sales staff.

    Miserable Management and a company that could care less.

    I worked at Penny Mustard Furnishings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay is astounding for a delivery driver.

    Cons

    There aren't safety precautions in place for lifting the heavy furniture, no daily checks on their delivery trucks before or after shift. Routes are not in your control so you could be driving from middle of nowhere to downtown Chicago, then back to the same city in the middle of nowhere. Management could care less how long your days are, your day ends when you are done with all your deliveries which could be over 15 hour days. Straight from the owner's mouth, "Everyone is replaceable" to give you a good feel for what kind of leaders you will be working for. Customer service will tell the delivery drivers to lie and hide blemishes or damages on the furniture from the customers upon delivery, and hope the customer doesn't notice, and if the customer does notice the first person that feels the effects are the delivery drivers because they do not get paid hourly they get paid on a stop basis, and the entire stop will be deducted from your pay even if the problem was known before the piece even leaving the warehouse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the delivery drivers advice on how to make routes better and hold the right people accountable for checking furniture over before sending it to customers and then taking pay away from the hard workers, who are the last face the customers see from the company.

    Pros

    Not overworked. Most of the time as a salesperson you work a 4 day work week. You get a small discount if you want to buy something.

    Cons

    1. All pay has been lowered over the last few years.
    2. Medical insurance has been taken away. They now just give you $150 per month that you can pay towards your own private insurance.
    3.The only benefit is a 401K. Everything else has been taken away.
    4. Salespeople not in management earn $25,000-$45,000.
    5. High turnover of salespeople. You are always helping train the next salesperson, who will probably quit or be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share. Your sales are up, but you're not helping the employees by taking away normal employee benefits and commissions.

    Pros

    Owners treat you like family that they care about.

    Cons

    Pay is limiting and below what industry is paying, no medical insurance either

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should be able to afford the furniture offered by the company they work for.
