    I worked at American Freight Furniture full-time

    Pros

    There is potential for healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    Will rip anyone off they can for a buck. Minimal job security. Terrible to women employees. Lie to get customers in the store. Management are mostly rude people with aggressive personalities. Inflexible and unprofessional. Low pay. No air conditioning or heat. Overall inhumane.

    I worked at American Freight Furniture part-time

    Pros

    Discount on purchases
    Some easy day
    Help customers

    Cons

    No breaks
    Not very organized
    No lunch break
    Not paid enough for the hard work

    Advice to Management

    Open earlier instead of at 12pm so there’s more time to get ready for the day. Upgrade and organize the space more

    Pros

    Health insurance was decent and regular Monday through Friday shifts were nice. Not much vacation time, but some days could be flexible.

    Cons

    Very poor management, no organization or communication, valued little with max 10 days vacation after two years and no 401k match. Rude and unprofessional management in office and field. Raises are very rare and most positions are under paid.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication and treat employees with respect. Give annual reviews and raises.

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

    Pros

    I love American Freight because it has helped me realize many different potentials that i have had dormant in me.

    Cons

    its a 5% commission sales job. business is a fluctuating thing where certain times of the year are busier then others.

    Advice to Management

    it would be very useful in the vestal location if the company invested in trucks for a delivery service option. the store would benefit greatly from the ability to run its own transfers, and do its own deliveries in my opinion.
