        I worked at American Freight Furniture full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        There’s only really two pros. If you work hard you can expect to move up and get management experience. Second, you can potentially make lots of money at times.

        Cons

        Upper management sucks. Company policy to keep heat at 55 during winter. But if the store has overhead doors they’ll be open all day long everyday. So if you work in states that see snow on a regular basis, dress for the outdoors even though you’re technically inside. They also will demote managers if your store doesn’t see an increase from the year before. So if you did better a couple years in a row and all of a sudden...
