    I worked at La-Z-Boy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Product Liked my co workers

    Cons

    Terrible Training, it consists of a couple of days of online courses/quizzes. Commission Structure is one of the poorest I've ever seen. It's 5% commission on your product sales. Plus a small commission for extras. The top writers at my location only made around $50K per year. So unless you write over a million a year, don't expect to come anywhere close to six figures. The training pay they "guarantee" in their ads is only minimum wage and they limit you to 35-40 hours per week for the first two months. So unless you can live off minimum wage for two months I wouldn't recommend this place. You won't see a decent paycheck til your 3rd or 4th month, you get paid on what you deliver. So if you sell a lot of special order stuff, it takes 3-4 months (sometimes longer) for it to arrive and get delivered to the customer. So it takes a while to get your pipeline built up. Managers encourage lying to customers to sell the "guardian" fabric/leather protection. Encouraging us to tell customers it comes with it and if they decline the treatment we have to special order the chair without it and it'll take them 8-12 weeks to get it. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this place if you're the primary earner for your family. It's an okay place for retired older sales people, or people who have a spouse who makes a lot and they just want this job for supplemental income. There are much better furniture places who have both better training available, and better pay structure.
