    - benefits and vacation time is a joke
    - very unsupportive of staff
    - not very proactive. They prefer to wait and see if there is an issue and then will look at correcting it after the fact instead of fixing it from the beginning

    I worked at American Furniture Rentals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly nice people all up and down the company.

    Cons

    Some, high level people are there because they've been with the company for so long -- doesn't necessarily make them effective, and, in fact, in a few cases, it gets in the way. The company has too many chiefs, and not enough workers (fairy paid workers, no less)

    The company demands a lot: in the way they do business, and thus in time. Clients and orders trump employees, and thus employees work like dogs, with no assurance of regular time off. 70 + hour work weeks are the norm, not the exception, yet it's what's expected. The minimum of 6 legal holidays isn't really honored if there is an order to be fulfilled, and it seems the only way to get any time off is to leave or fall ill.

    As stated elsewhere from another reviewer, PTO is criminally off, and not uniform across the company: Ops only gets 1 week, after a full year of work, and then 2 weeks after 3 years -- while sales can get two. The sales force, in fact, dictates how the company is run, and some of that sales team are really nasty people to work with some times.

    Benefits are standard, with the coming starting to pay less and the employee more.

    The company has a lot of contradictory facets that make it hard to work for, and no one at the executive management level knows what to do, and (so it seems) doesn't honestly care.

    Advice to Management

    Richard Branson, of Virgin Atlantic, once wrote:
    "Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take cares of the clients"
