Pros

This is an amazing store and company to work for! The product is so easy to sell, its the the best of modern design at great prices. We have the best clientele from all over. Its a really good work... environment and professional. The Store Manager is always very helpful and wants and encourages all employees to be successful. The work environment is collaborative and fun. The Store and Company expectations are easy to achieve as long as you are passionate about great customer service and interior design. The staff takes great pride in their work environment. Management is always flexible and open to making improvements. There is room for advancement, 2 Account Executives have been promoted to Managers this last year.

Cons

Sales are so great and we can not get merchandise in fast enough.

I have been working at Room & Board full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working at Room & Board has been one of the best decisions I've made in my career. The people here are caring, genuine and hard-working. The environment is truly unique, it is welcoming, open and... provides lots of natural light. I have the opportunity to learn something new almost daily. I have been part of a large project as well as other small ones already in my time here. I am grateful to have the ability to work from home and personal time to take care of myself and my family. Room & Board proves over and over again that they care about their staff members, the community and sustainability. This makes the company really stand out in my opinion.

Cons

None that I can think of in my time here.

Advice to Management
