    store always smells nice and looks appealing

    Cons

    furniture and decor is too quirky... could be tasteful to older generations
    pressure to open way too many credit cards
    customer relation expectations are too high and bit too forward
    minimum hours given
    only one sales associate on the sales floor quite often
    store in Santa Monica, CA is too small to store furniture and a bit dangerous

    Advice to Management

    schedule more than one associate especially during day shifts.
    make weekly credit card opening goals more reasonable.

    concerning store in Santa Monica, CA:
    stop sending too much stuff to this store, it can't handle the same volume as a regular store and makes working at this store dangerous and unsafe.
    OR
    move location of store to a bigger commercial space.


  2. "An easy job"

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Orlando, FL
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Orlando, FL
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is an easy company to work for, as they are fairly relaxed about calling-out and being late(I think it's allowed about 4 times per month actually), and if you are a fairly competent and reliable person you will likely have an opportunity to advance from associate to assistant manager fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Hard work is usually not recognized and the lazy/late/careless employee gets the same salary increases as everyone else. The pay scale is poor, with Assistant managers making $10-12 per hour and it is likely to take several years(10+) to become a store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard working and reliable employees with better pay and a little recognition.
