City Furniture – Why Work For Us?


It all began in the summer of 1971 when founder, Kevin Koenig, received his MBA from Florida Atlantic University. With just $1,500 in his pocket, he set out to accomplish one mission: open his first waterbed store: Waterbed City.   Today, we represent both the City Furniture and Ashley Furniture Homestore brands and we've grown to have City Furniture locations and Ashley HomeStore locations throughout the state of Florida.  It’s our drive to win that has allowed us to become a top furniture retailer in South Florida with continuous growth.  With planned expansions throughout Southeast, Southwest, and Central Florida, City Furniture is a business focused on fast growth and exceptional service.  There couldn’t be a better time to join our team!

City Furniture is a great place to work—and it's not simply because of our benefits or our focus on associates' development and recognition.  It's because of the people. We are a family who looks out for each other and strives for greatness.

As a family-owned and operated company, we've come to develop a unique culture based on the values we all share and the relationships that we have nurtured and developed. From our Community and Green initiatives, to an abundance of awards, City Furniture knows that if we take care of our associates, the environment and community around us everything else will fall into place.

    I have been working at City Furniture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing and keep getting better. In the new year they added paid holidays and scheduling improvements. The company constantly asks you what they can be doing better and they listen! We will soon have tablets to use instead of desktops and my current showroom is being renovated/updated. The company also offers; $1000 in health insurance discounts when you get your preventative screening done, paid vacation, referal bonuses, tons of sales bonuses, and some very USEFUL training. They only promote from within. I am I very satisfied customer and worker.

    Cons

    Working nights and weekends can be difficult. That's when everyone is shopping so that's when we want to work most. With the new scheduling improvements we can now take an entire weekend off every few months.

    Advice to Management

    Even as a first tier manager I have direct access to my General Manager, Regional Manager, Director of Opporations, and company President. My voice is heard.
