    I think the company is very fair. You do get what you put into the job it can be very rewarding with with some effort.

    Pros

    Close relations with both the store and regional managers in a proffesional environment. Good work life balance in all positions with the exception of store/sales managers and salesmen.

    Cons

    pay has not been raised in relation to minimum wage increasing. Sometimes unachievable goals for sales people. Disconnect between store management and operations team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operations and store management need to communicate better. Store management should consult backroom/ops team before making major decisions that affect their work environment.

    Pros

    It's a roof over your head

    Cons

    Too many hours, too many sales people and you can't make a deal without 3 levels of management getting involved.
    Late nights, every weekend and your almost always in deficit with your draw.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the 50's and treat your sales people like adults.

    Pros

    Nothing about this company was positive.

    Cons

    Promise that you will make a lot of money, but the only one who is making money is them. They take money out of your commission for everything. They charge you for financing, sale pricing and anything else they can think of. They promise you that you will make commission on gross profit which should be half of the selling price not even close after they take out what they want out of your commission. Last but not least you are forced to work hours where you can' t earn commission and owe the money back to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the managers should be on the same page as far as commission rules but they are not. The sales people run your stores not the managers.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, great pay, training is decent

    Cons

    Be prepared to work 60 hours/6 days a week. No base pay . 100% commission. Management usually has no education. There promoted from the warehouse or customer service so that they could be ran like puppets. Pay for your own benefits dental vision health .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you consultants right you claim 15% commission . I sold 1,300,000 that's right presidents club member . And only made 90k. That is a mere 7%. Let's stop the bravado Neil and Michael goldberg.

    Pros

    Good pay, great employee discounts, always fresh faces due to the high turn over rate. Once a year the owners cook you breakfast.

    Cons

    The hours are awful and lets be honest, nobody shops for furniture prior to 4pm. They hold special sales every other month which mandates you work even more hours than normal. You get a 30 minute lunch regardless of how long your shift is which makes it impossible to leave the building to actually get a meal. I was hired as a manager and given a list of people to fire the first week. When I continued to refuse because there was no basis to fire them i got demoted. I was told to document these individuals "failure to follow company policy" so we wouldn't have to pay then u employment. When I went to HR with my concerns I got demoted again. Now I am a lowly sales associate working at the same store I once managed. I am waiting until my "failure to follow company policy " write ups start to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that the leaders you hire lead by fear. Everyone is too worried to upset "the g's" to actually speak their mind and make improvements. Start at the bottom and work your way up interviewing current associates with a 3rd party mediator and a signed document saying your word will not get you fired and pray they tell the truth.
