    I have been working at R.C. Willey full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great employee discounts on furniture, not so great on electronics, because of margins, but there are definite benefits if you want to furnish your place. The store culture is often positive, and co workers are mostly great people.

    Cons

    Its retail, so working holidays and Saturdays are a negative. There is always a push to push for upselling added warranties and accessories, but in most cases RC Willey's extended warranties are honestly a good option for customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication trickle down from management for policy changes and training in sales skills and new methods and procedures is often handled poorly. I've often felt I didn't know how to do my job when I was new. Building a better training program would do a lot for new employees

    I have been working at R.C. Willey part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here is the obvious difficulty of the job. It's pretty easy, fun, and you feel productive. There aren't too many barriers to working here and everyone seems pretty chill and relaxed.

    Cons

    Minus a few managers. There are a few things that bother me. The management drags their feet about everything. While the employees try to get ahead of the customer to meet needs, management can be seen as that lazy employee who just gets frustrated whenever someone tells them to do something. Crap hours, but its retail so... not much to gripe there honestly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bending to the whim of Salt Lake. Everything RC Willey does is emulate Salt Lake. They could be in Dubai and if walked into an RC Willey in Dubai, it would feel like Salt Lake.

    I have been working at R.C. Willey full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Solid company. Great people to work with. Average time with company of most managers is 10-15 years. Average time of most salespeople is 5-7yrs.

    Cons

    Its retail so forget about getting the major holidays off. Also, you work every Saturday and your schedule throughout the week varies. Also, communication from managers is one sided (them to you) and they don't encourage suggestions from the salespeople.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to actively improve on their supervising skills namely in the form of communication and rapprt building. Just because you're a sales manager doesn't mean you stop selling....your true clientele is now your sales staff.

    -Good discounts.

    Cons

    -Poor management.
    -No advancement potential.
    -Promotes work safety, but work can be extremely strenuous.
    -Company cares more about profit than the happiness of their employees.
    -Went 4 years without a raise, then to finally get a 11 cent bump.

    -Benefits are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation to your employees and really think about setting up a management review program. The grunts who do the physical work are the backbone of the company and are yet the most under appreciated.
