    I worked at Art Van Furniture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere, tons of down time while waiting for the guest to come in, some supportive management

    Cons

    You really don't get paid unless you work 7 days a week. You do receive a weekly "draw" which is owe back to the company. The don't give new people a chance to make it, they start them off in a slow month like June and expect them to pull their weight like they been in the company 20 years. I witness this at GD Rapids, Management takes commissioned sales off the floor to serve pizza, and they told one sales to take his name off the book for 1 hour.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves, treat your commissioned sales with respect, they are working for free most of the time. Change the "up" system back. Do away the Pure Sleep dedicated stores. IT"S not working. Give the underdog a chance to make it.
