    I have been working at Buddy's Home Furnishings full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    We basically rob the poor. If these people are 2 days late we go and take their Tv, microwave, and furniture. Then, re-rent it to the next poverty-stricken couple. Until I find another job I just keep pretending im anywhere else. I hate this place.

    Cons

    Cons include everything else. The Pay sucks. The management are demonic. The hours are long. Nobody cares about anyone only money. Fellow employees are just there to steal from you and take whats yours. Cut throat from the minute you enter the building. Also, the pay sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your job too seriously. You're morally disgusting. We all are.

    Pros

    I've had a great experience working for the franchise here. The owners have been really good to me. They are fair and kind. Growing company so you can advance really quickly. The compensation is performance-based, so if you're a go-getter, you can make a lot of money. The store is like a family and the camaraderie is awesome. The work is fun and the day goes by really fast. I worked for a competitor (Aaron's)...

    I have been working at Buddy's Home Furnishings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staying busy is no problem as rent to own goes at a pretty fast pace.

    Cons

    Upper management talks a great game of wanting to be a bigger,more competitive rent to own company but they still carry themselves as a very small company. The store managers and district managers I have met all have VERY SERIOUS INTEGRITY ISSUES. They openly steal and misapropiate cash and inventory. They instruct their assistant managers to type up and activate agreements...

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to a group of investors that would bring in a new management team. Maybe sell to a competitor?
