    I have been working at La-Z-Boy full-time

    Pros

    My coworkers are great to be around! The store management is helpful and work closely with you to get you trained. There is almost no limitation on what they can train you on. They really do appreciate what you do and back you up if there is a problem. Everyone is mostly happy with what they do. The company thrives on return/long time customers. The quality is good, and the options are vast, making it easier to sell furniture. All of the training makes it a good starting career, but not an ending one.

    Cons

    There is a promotional ceiling. You can only move up so much before you reach a dead end. The only way they will promote you is if someone quits. Even then it's a long shot. Everyone does everything to run the store (Cleaning, moving furniture, writing and processes quotes, customer service issues, and sales). They need to hire someone to take over some of these jobs so that your sales people don't have to be the ones to sell furniture and wash windows all at the same time for $10-11 per hour. There is a high turnover because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Those who manage the store know what they are doing and know what their customers want, but every furniture set that sells well is required to be removed from the store. The "higher ups" in the company are oblivious and need to work the sales floor before they make ridiculous decisions. They also need to evaluate the work vs. pay balance as well.
