    I worked at CB2 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Inspirational, trendy furniture
    Occasional down to earth customers

    Cons

    Everything else. Management is corrupted with narcissists who don't want you to excel and will go through any length to "break" you into the culture. If you don't mind being subject to daily passive aggressive attacks that will lower your self esteem so you never strive to get ahead in the company, work here. There is NO professional growth available to you here, don't believe the deception and friendly smiles. It's a trap. I crawled away with my soul in tact, but only after being publicly humiliated by management in front of customers and coworkers, a psychic breakdown and anxiety attack, and my last check being withheld in attempt to lure me back into this abusive workplace cycle. Dealing with snarky coworkers is one thing, but when all of management struggles with low self esteem and poor communication skills, it's best to just abort ship. Healthy people can not, will not, survive in this type of work environment. Consider yourself warned.

    Advice to Management

    Ha...won't waste my breath with advice. But thank you for providing me with the opportunity to take notes on all of the major red flags to look out for in a job search. I'm really only writing this review to warn genuine, hardworking people who strive to invest in themselves and seek opportunities to be a greater version of themselves-- the ones who genuinely would like to invest in and grow with the company they're working for-- the ones who don't envision a future of working a minimum wage job for the rest of their lives. If you just need a check to get you through a tough time, by all means. Just remember your rights, keep them in check, and you'll be fine.

    The people were all nice.

    Pros

    Store manager cares about work/life balance. Coworkers are generally pleasant.

    Cons

    Base pay is very low. Profit sharing commission is great when it's great. You can expect to make competitive for retail money if your store is doing well.

    I have been working at CB2 full-time

    Pros

    Good coworkers make it fun. Great discount.

    Cons

    Too quick of a turnover in store. Managers are under trained and doesn't have enough support from upper management. Very stressful job at times. POS system has many issues. Not enough staff. Too many responsibilities expected of people.

    Advice to Management

    Yes customers are important but your employees are equally as important. Invest more in the people you have in the company. Hire proper staffing for the stores. So many stores work on skeleton crews. Staff needs more training. Stores need to develop better training program.

    Pros

    Great work environment in terms of the coworkers.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, especially for all the job responsibilities. They do not promote internally. The job you start with usually only has one advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, look at your competitors. Promote your loyal deserving employees!


  7. "Worked at CB2 for 5 months"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at CB2 part-time

    Pros

    - products are nice
    - coworkers are usually young nice people to be around
    - Nothing too complicated about doing the job

    Cons

    Expect to be standing all day long and bored when the store isn't on rush days/hours. The same music playlist will be looping forever as a small type of torture (I still hear the same music when I go back to say hi to ex coworkers, after 1 year out of there) and you get paid nothing! Might be ok if you just want some extra money, but don't rely on this job to pay your bills. The commission is shared at the end of the day (your rate will be something around $11/hour) AND they only consider the money that was made during your shift (that means: if you leave and one hour later the biggest sale of the day happens, you're not included in that shared commission)

  8. "Great co-workers, low pay."

    - Employee discount (but does my include furniture until 90 days after starting)

    Be more generous to your employees. They are the face of your company.
