    Pros

    Commission is okay if you are a good sales person.

    Cons

    They do not care about the people that work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be in management unless you are prepared to devote all of your time toward a company that will toss you out the window in a blink of an eye.

    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.

    I have been working at American Freight Furniture full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay as sales. Nothing else to say really.

    Cons

    At first it was fun but there are VP's above that are absolutely clueless that couldn't operate a toilet if their lives depended on it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in management and do not elevate yourself. Look how many regionals have become a rotating door. You will always be blamed for the failure of your superiors who shouldn't have ever been in that area in the first place.

    Pros

    The Commission set up is amazing! If you want a good commission set this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The Hours can be a little life consuming especially during tax time. Get plenty of sleep. Normal work day is 12-13 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Always be punctual. Attention to detail and knowing your sales pitches! Customer service is the most important thing.

    I have been working at American Freight Furniture full-time

    Pros

    You can miss a day of work without getting in any trouble as there is no attendance policy. There is no dress code. You get bonuses twice a year. They let you bring your dogs to work. You do get some vacation days, and some paid holidays.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. You don't get raises hardly ever. You also don't get formal reviews. You don't any more than 10 days vacation, no matter how long you have been there. Management doesn't follow through on what they say they're going to do. You don't get holidays off around Christmas if it falls on a weekend. No 401K matching. They did away with paying employee's insurance so some people have their insurance paid and others do not. There is also no sick or personal time. No chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better.

    Pros

    Lots of money, easy job, fun staff, team orientated, positive energy, high motivation.
    Work hard everyday and you can go from starting salary of 50k to 100k by getting your own store. Be better and always improve. If you are a go getter, you have a big shot and opportunity with this company. I come to work everyday for 8 to 10 hours happy everyday 365. THE GREAT AMERICAN FREIGHT!!!!

    Cons

    Don't know what to do with all this money....

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing to be better everyday. Best management I've seen out of any job to date.
