You can make a lot of money here if you apply yourself and are a people person.
It’s retail. Ours are long and sometimes is boring and other times you’re absolutely slammed
Advice to Management
I know this is what would be termed as pressure by the company, but each store needs a dedicated “closer” that talks to each Customer briefly before they leave. Nothing drastic or hard closing;... just a soft T.O. The right person in this role, in each store, could possibly increase sales by 30 to 40%

Excellent pay, benefits are ok, they may not be for everybody. The company is growing and continues grow. The “in house” finance program opens another avenue of knowledge. It sets the company apart... from the competition. It’s a great place to learn what it takes, both on the front end of a sale and the back end. Private sales are great. The owners treat their employees like family.
Of course being in Retail Furniture there are long hours ahead. Expect to work 50+ a week. Especially in management. It’s to be expected. There seemed to be a lack of understanding between corporate... and storefronts . A lot of it can be summarized by poor upper management making rash decisions and not being transparent to the home office etc. The biggest let down is the ultimate closing of our two Nashville Locations. It’s unfortunate because it was truly a company I would have retired from.
Advice to Management
Be more involved in newer stores. To avoid potential closing etc.
