    I worked at Raymour & Flanigan full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, most of the sales people that work there are pretty nice, thats the most fun part of the job...I worked there for 3 years.... Made 40-45K by the time i resigned... They push you to make your numbers, and they don't care how you do it as long as its done. Generally they overstaff the stores, based on what they a "grid" all it means for you is you will see 5-10 (at the very most) ups per day. They do work off a list system, and people get pretty crazy about the list. Need a breath of fresh air after 6 hours stuck in the building, go ahead, but don't even try to stick your nose out the door if you on the list... Be prepared for sale after sale after sale. They do friends and family sale twice a year, and they expect a min of 40K written business, again they don't care if this is good deliverable business or not, send your best friend in to put $20 down on a 10K order to make you event if you have to... After your crazy weekend of 10-9 Friday, Saturday and Sunday...Yes! Sunday till 9...because thats when people buy couches! Be prepared and ready for a wednesday event sale, for which you'll need 5K of written business... If your days off are Monday and Tuesday, again they don't care, you should have prospected for this event! This company is run from the top down and the only thing they care for are their numbers, not their people...

    Cons

    Sales people who are dishonest or don't qualify their or your customer will lie and say its theirs... If your honest plan on making 5-10K less than if you lie about things there. The management pretty much doesn't care, but the rules can change from day to day or hour to hour...

    Working at the Field Support Center is a nightmare where managers have no idea how to lead.

    I worked at Raymour & Flanigan full-time

    Pros

    As a Raymour & Flanigan employee, you can purchase mass-produced furniture from China at a discounted rate.

    Cons

    During the interview process, I was told what a wonderful place this was to work because of the teamwork within the department. It didn't take long to realize I was lied to. People at the Field Support Center are not friendly. The owners offices are located there, and the overall culture is very uptight and conservative. Managers may know the process, but they have no idea how to lead people. Co workers will throw you under the bus every chance they get in an attempt to make themselves look good. Unqualified employees are placed in leadership roles and praised for spending their day micromanaging and criticizing. It's an extremely dreadful place to work due to incompetent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are VP or director of a department, be hands on when it comes to departmental leadership. This approach is much more professional than handing your dirty work to an unqualified person to do it for you. You're not fooling anyone in the department - they can all clearly see your words coming from the puppet's mouth which leaves both of you with zero credibility.

    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

    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
