    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Buddy's Home Furnishings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quick advancement, decent starting pay.

    Cons

    Hours of operation. Unrealistic expectations, training, very poor higher management, organization, and commute to other stores due to poor relationships with distributors.

    Advice to Management

    If it takes 8 people to run a store effectively and eliminate high turnover, then hire 8 people. Take in to account the lack of a home life that you force upon your employees by asking each person to do the job of three people. You save money on continually training employees that eventually go to competitors, and it allows a better service for your customers.
