    Pros

    Family owned business where the employees are listened to. Stable, good income potential, lots of great benefits provided to everyone no matter the position. Continuing training and education with LDI programs, longevity of employees, able to do a lot of things to add value and give your own opinion.

    Cons

    Time off is not the most competitive. Flexibility could be better and the realization that people will give more and be more productive if they have a bit more flexibility and ability to spend time on things outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the time off policies.

    I worked at Raymour & Flanigan full-time

    Pros

    The showrooms do look great, most of the associates are friendly, the furniture is priced right, not over priced and then put on "sale".

    Cons

    The hours. Many 10-12 hour days, no weekends off unless you used a personal day which is HIGHLY frowned upon. Managers would discount to the point that the sales person made very little $ but the store volume went up, Managers made their goal/bonuses for the month. I am a seasoned sales person and was let go because I missed delivered volume goal. With $65K+ delivered plus $27K in holds/special orders in April....The goal was $78K delivered, period! I was fired on the spot even though I was not "on the bottom" of 18 sales people.

    Advice to Management

    More focus and appreciation on what your associates are doing well and share weekly HOW and WHAT they do to be successful.
