    The Money Was Good But not The Stress!

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsYou make good money- min $50K/Yr as a Sales Associate as long as you hit your minimum of $83,500 Volume per month. There is lots of traffic and customers that purchase here due to prices; style of furniture and 0% non accruing interest and extensive advertising that RTG does. Your co workers are like family: you see each other more than you see you're family at home and you get into fights over stealing customers and then you go back to being somewhat civil. Another plus: the mattress reps and sometime the company provides food on long holiday work days. The medical benefits are decent as far as what they take out of your checks. Paid holidays, paid vacations get 2weeks/yr. Get an additional day off to use when you work on a holiday which was nice so you didn't have to use a personal day.

    ConsThere's always a bad apple or 2 at each store that causes problems for managers and other co workers. You constantly feel like you are walking on pens and needles (must make sure you do not say certain things in front of certain people that will spin it to get you fired or written up). It is truly every man for himself; doggy dog; high turn over; lots of things you have to familiarize yourself with (beds, mattresses, accessories, fabric & leather protection) and outrageous goals and demands you have to maintain to stay working there. The management staff are not real managers they are micro-managed and told what to do by someone up higher. I've worked with several different managers and all but maybe 1 or 2 have been sociopaths. They are a lot of write-ups and some of them do not even make sense. Very unprofessional and unethical environment to work in. The hours are long (work 12 hr shifts sometimes days in a row). You do not get 2 days off in a row unless you use a personal day. RTG becomes your life and all you talk about. When making complaints to HR you have to get multiple people involved for things to happen; otherwise that person or manager gets a slap on hand. The managers treat you like children and all they care about is hitting their numbers because it can cost them their jobs. If you like DRAMA, this is your place; something shady and scandalous always happening!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart making managers go through test before hiring them to see if they have customer service skills and if they are a people person instead of just a numbers person. Once become manager they should go through training on managing others. Give your managers more freedom to do things without having to contact regional to do things such as give away a free people. As far as write-ups: I believe in critiquing individuals to help them improve but telling a person:" Im writing you up for not having enough add-ons or volume, from looking at your numbers you aren't going to make it this month, sign here, is not helping anyone! if anything they have to constantly fight to get that out of their heads so that they can concentrate on selling so they do not get fired. They use to promote within and recently started promoting outside. Not much room for advancement.

    Great company depending on the store you work at

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsBig company but they try to treat you like family. Working in sales with RTG can be a great career with a competitive commission structure. If you're ok with not having any opportunity to move up in a company and you're looking just for a $40-50 grand a year job, this is the place for you.

    ConsVery little opportunity to move up in the company. Management and corporate are very much the "good ol' boy system" hiring family members and old friends. Most of the management are people the Seaman family knew when they had the other company. It's hit or miss with management, some mangers are great and others are just incredibly incompetent, but will never be fired. There is no cross-pollination from retail to corporate, meaning corporate treats and views the retail staff and management as a different company. There is no opportunity to move from sales into a more corporate position...again, run like a different company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart a management training program, get rid of the old blood and bring RTG into the 20th century. Train your employees in other areas of the company. This isn't 1980 anymore.
