    Battleground Favoritism

    Pros

    Varied vendors, great selection, lots of advertising

    Cons

    Seasoned salespeople that cheat their way to the door, lie to customers if they ask for a specific designer, give discounts to get ahead, specific salespeople are favored by the Baers and their corporate leads, it's a battleground for survival which makes salespeople moonlight on outside private design practice or refers customers to other colleagues at Thomasville to get a referral fee. No base salary. Very high medical insurance, very very high revolving turnover. No professional development, no time to even try to venture on the side yet one salesperson does it. Home calls are not followed up on. Office staff is underpaid. Female Baer is a bully and has no concept of true design, style, and doesn't know her cultures. If you're a true designer this is not the place for you. Go work in a real estate development or a design studios. This is just another "El Dorado Furniture" with the branded furnishings behind them. Royal Partners in Design in Key Largo pays 12%. Commissions ...

    Former Employee, less than 1 year

    Pros

    The customers are lovely, devoted, and friendly. Nice store. If you enjoy working many hours, this is for you.

    Cons

    The expectation of knowing how to operate their antiquated system as quickly as those who've been there for years. The pretension that "we're family owned for years, so we train you to keep you." They fire quickly, and for minutiae. The tremendous amount of excessive work & paperwork/trash due to carbon copies. Don't ask "why" to understand your job better, just DO it! Nasty talk about new hires. Mounds of unnecessary paperwork and processes, but nothing nice is ever done to boost morale. Working EVERY weekend and holiday from brunch time to past dinner time.
