    Pros

    Sales can be lucrative if in the right showroom and with good management.

    Cons

    Hours are brutal. Most nights and every weekend. As well, management tends to give preferential treatment to top performers as far as schedules, feeding them sales, etc

    Pros

    great benefits and pay rate. excellent work ethics and good environment to work. training is always available. opportunities to advance are many but you have to be a go-getter to get them. Supervisors are very understanding and flexible. multiracial employees.

    Cons

    not many but management could use some improvement. The upper management tends to change very often, just when you think they have something going, surprise the regional manager gets fired! this creates a very sustainable environment that affects all the employes. fortunately this changes are only related to management positions and do not affect the other positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more consistency is necessary, too many changes in management stop grow and creates instability. O

    I have been working at Raymour & Flanigan

    Pros

    Not sure there are any pros to talk about. A little paycheck is better than none? Best times are when left alone with no work.

    Cons

    Before hiring they take a chunk ( over 20 strands of hair) for a drug test. No training. Constantly getting reprimanded or written up for stupid things. Working till last customer leaves store so 10 or 11 often. Unfair treatment for different employees. Low pay and no chance of advancement. No overtime so if you stay late they just make you come in later.

    Pros

    If they ACTUALLY practiced what they preach and claim to stand for, and truly recognized hard working, productive people, it would be a great place to work because they pay well.

    Cons

    It's not how GREAT your department is running, how hard you've worked and that you have proven yourself...it's who you are aligned with. Unfortunately the biggest BSer's are always the one with the most "power". Since they are also the ones that have to protect themselves because they don't have the integrity or work ethic necessary to just roll up their sleeves and put in a hard, productive work day, they target those that do because we have them figured out. GREAT people have came and went because of the political powers, known as the EVIL EMPIRE by the hard workers on the inside,who are constantly having to dodge bullets. The culture is so stressful and mentally exhausting because you have to play all kinds of games ON TOP OF always going above and beyond doing a great job! A real shame!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open you eyes owners!! Unless this is how you planned it to be and no one would be surprised about that!
