    I have been working at Furnitureland South full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Encouraging and motivating management. Family/work life balance. Competitive pay. I love working with a staff that works with so much pride in their profession. The company is very involved in the community. The CEO and president are both humble, involved, personable and kind. My thoughts and advice are genuinely considered. This is the first place I have worked where I truly felt appreciated and accounted for.

    Cons

    I cannot think of a downside so I will write this to fulfill the 20-word minimum.

    "Excellent Intern Opportunity, horrible career"

    I worked at Furnitureland South full-time

    Pros

    Loved interning here, and everyone in my department. Good pay for interns in NC

    Cons

    In regards to working in sales, extremely cut throat. Design consultants typically will only help their clients because their pay is straight commission. Also design consultants get credited when items are sent back. Some serious unethical in-house practices. You will have to fight for every basic employee perk/benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the people are great while others are extremely negative. This place can really wear a person down from my observation of the people working here. Management should really get rid of the ridiculous credit policy and raise the commissions that can be earned on sold merchandise.

    I worked at Furnitureland South full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, Work Schedule, Closed Sundays

    Cons

    Not paid for time off & being told when you can use ETO (earned time off). Constant deductions from pay for things out of your control. Not commended for a job well done & only told where you need to improve. Being required to work desks versus actually working.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees you are appreciated

    Pros

    Make great tips per trip. They pay you well. You only work 3 full days and and load your truck, which takes half a day from 7-12. So great pay for 4 days of work per week. A great staff to work with as well.

    Cons

    A lot of heavy lifting and irritating customers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, you make this job enjoyable and worth doing.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great! Good support system,which you'll need if you're not one of the lucky ones being "fed".

    Cons

    Too much work for too little money. You are responsible for credits, not customer service. It's a LOT of work. You lose commission even if it's out of your control.

    I worked at Furnitureland South (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had great co-workers and a good manager that was flexible and understanding. Starbucks on campus was a plus. Decent amount of PTO, plus paid holidays. They do Thanksgiving and Christmas lunch for the entire company, chili cook-off and other fun events like that throughout the year plus departments might do their own department-wide events as well.

    Cons

    Pay was low and there wasn't much room for advancement. They expect a lot out of you and want you to do quality work, but they don't want to pay you for it. Jeff, Jason and other "big dogs" weren't very nice and I heard them on many occasions make comments about taking advantage of people or other shady business practices they were doing. People in upper management want to tell other departments how to do their work, when they have no experience or education on HOW to run a department of that type.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people a decent wage for all of the hard work they do to make your company a success. Listen/take advice from employees who are doing their work everyday & understand their position, instead of assuming you know everything because you own the company.
