    I have been working at F.H. Furr part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Highly organized company from onboarding to training - you have tremendous support in the form of HR documentation to sales manager training.
    Mobile technology helps provide management with the necessary reporting they require ie. no paperwork all digital.
    Manager understands the concept of territory planning and accounts for this by rotating team members. This ensures that your earning potential is not adversely affected by certain locations. Management always responsive to phone and there to support with helpful instruction. Even when you miss a couple details when it comes to reporting, management supportive in helping you get back on track.

    Cons

    The position depends on how many appoints are set. Part of securing a solid appointment revolves around the call center scheduling with the customer on the spot. I feel like this process could greatly be sped up.

    This is a process con that I believe the company is working on. It would also be interesting to see more company meetings for the sales staff to create more of a team atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for lead generators to interface as a team - perhaps in-person is a lot to ask for, how about a regular conference call to share experiences.

    I have been working at F.H. Furr full-time

    Pros

    I've only just started very recently, but I have a pretty good idea of what I'm dealing with. Honestly, before applying for this position, I checked out Glassdoor myself to decide whether or not this was a company I wanted to pursue. And I was blown away by the good things said by both previous and current employees.

    Management is so friendly, outgoing and understanding. I was unable to be here at my scheduled time for the first few days due because of my children and being a single mother. Thanks to upper management being understanding of my situation, I was given a few days time to make some adjustments and was off in time to be home for my kids. Because of that, I was able to arrange pick-up and drop-off for my kids in my absence. I've worked with several businesses, small, family owned and upscale corporate types. None were even remotely understanding, at least no compared to here.

    Family friendly working environments is where people like myself need to be, and that is exactly what I've found. My coworkers are wonderful, the training (although incomplete as of now) is extensive and thorough and I don't feel the least bit afraid because I know I'm going to be good at what I do before I'm even doing it.

    The compensation is way more than fair, the benefits available after your initial 60 days are INCREDIBLE, and the all around job security and advancement opportunities leaves me feeling confident that I will not have to add F.H. Furr to my resume.

    Cons

    Long work hours, but I know that can be changed up the road.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing.
