    I have been working at Rooms To Go full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company pays for overtime...The store management was very supportive and understanding...Full benefits after 90 days

    Cons

    there was no training for required duties, they just throw you into it and expect miracles. There were several times that vacation time was taken away based on "company needs" and no compensation was given. Worked alone in the office for several weeks open to close with no day off, did a job that I was not paid for. When I was finally promoted I was told by my regional manager that it would be "financially worth my while"...i got a $0.50 raise. Store managers were severely micro-managed to the point where there were several very busy days where there was no management available for sales, office or customer needs. TOO MUCH STRESS..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the managers run the store. Provide proper training to all managers.

    I worked at Rooms To Go full-time

    Pros

    Discount on furniture
    40 hour weeks
    Cheap health care insurance
    Low attrition
    Casual atmosphere

    Cons

    Low attrition which results in little innovation / new thought / ideas
    2 weeks vacation until you have 10 years tenure and no set personal time for salaried employees
    Pay is below market - no bonus structure
    While hours are good, there is little flexibility for salaried employees and it differs between departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach and lead by example.

    Pros

    Great pay, Great benefits, and Some jobs give bonuses.

    Cons

    ZERO communication, spineless supervisors, and enforced unwritten rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate. Every rule should be written down. A supervisor is supposed to lighten the blow between management and employees. Someone needs to learn to listen to employees the managers do not always know best.

    Pros

    Many long time employees since they have good benefits. The sales staff come and go as they please. The managers are not allowed to manage the staff.

    Cons

    The managers are micro managed. The bonuses for the managers are issued with no structure it is whatever the corporate feels like doing... No structure to depend on. Not stable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some structure and let your managers do the managing. This orlando region could be doing so much more with structure and a real leader. The ceo should take a good look at this region in Orlando. The people who work there want leadership
