Becker Furniture World was founded in 1978 by the Huseby family. Doug and Julie started this venture with just 500 square feet of showroom. Through the 1980s, Doug wholesaled furniture to other dealers and even manufactured furniture in addition to the retail store. In 1986, Becker’s tremendous growth caused the business to focus just on the retail store. With continuous expansions and innovative retailing, Becker has become a true retail destination. During the 1990s and into the early 2000s, Becker Furniture World continued to grow.

In 2010, to better service our customers, Becker Furniture World began a massive three year expansion plan. This plan included a comprehensive update/remodel of our 250,000 square foot flagship store, the opening of satellite store locations in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and the introduction of our mattress only stores, Becker Mattress.

At Becker Furniture World, we believe that wellness and health are key to a balanced life. We offer a variety of benefits to our staff and their families, with options to best fit each individual's needs. We also offer a unique, interactive Wellness Program to all employees that encourages preventative screenings, education and fitness.

The resources and benefits listed below are available to all staff members that work 30 - 32 or more hours each week.

HEALTH INSURANCE & BENEFITS

Medical Insurance

Staff members are eligible for coverage 60 days after the first of the month following their date of hire. Spouse and children are eligible for coverage.

We offer two medical insurance plans: a traditional plan with higher premium contributions but lower deductible, and a high deductible health plan with lower monthly premium, but a higher deductible. Both plans include a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). Becker Furniture World makes annual contributions to the Health Reimbursement Accounts of our staff members to off-set out-of-pocket expenses. Both plans offer preventive care with no out-of-pocket expense.

We offer a 20% discount from the base rate if an employee participates in the Be Fit and Well program that is designed to encompass the whole well being of our staff.

Employees can receive a 25% discount from the base rate if all covered family members are Tobacco Free.

Both discounts can be combined for lower health premium contribution.

Dental Insurance

Staff members are eligible for coverage 90 days after the first of the month following their date of hire. Spouse and children are eligible for coverage. Staff members are asked to pay part of the premium for dental insurance.

Our dental insurance covers preventive care at 100%. The maximum annual benefit is $1,500 per individual.

Flexible Spending Accounts

This benefit allows staff members to take pre-tax deductions from their paycheck and save that money for eligible expenses, including medical, dental and vision services, and child care expenses.

PHYSICAL WELLNESS

Wellness Program: Be Fit and Well

We are very excited to offer a state of the art voluntary participation-based program. This benefit is available to all employees – no matter if you are full-time or part-time or on our insurance plan or not. The program covers all aspects of a staff member's health and well being: Fitness, Screenings, Preventative Maintenance, and Education. The more you participate, the more points you have and the better your chances are to win some of the fabulous incentive rewards. Our affiliated Ultimate Wellness Center offers additional services and benefits, including free health coaches.

    I have been working at Becker Furniture World full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible managers that understand the importance of a work-life balance.
    - Great co-workers! I have made multiple lifelong friends during my time at BFW.
    - Your job and all of the work you do is very rewarding.
    - The Executive Team genuinely cares about the company and all of the employees.
    - The environment is extremely customer friendly.

    Cons

    - Depending on the position, weekends and holidays are a requirement in retail.
    - With there being multiple stores you communicate mainly through email so at times it can be hard to establish relationships with some of your co-workers at other locations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of your employees and they will continue to take care of you!
