    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Manchester, CT
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Manchester, CT

    I worked at Raymour & Flanigan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule allows for weekdays day off. As a commission sales associate, one has the opportunity to set personal earning goal,

    Cons

    Commission is shared with store management, if a customer wants the deal advertised on TV, it represents a smaller commission to the sales associate.Although having flex work time is good, one does miss out on weekend activities with family and friend as weekend are mandatory to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better commission structure.

    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.
