    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.

    Pros

    The leadership cares about their employees and they give back to the community. If you work hard you can make a lot of money. They carry the best lines in the industry and are the largest furniture retailer in the world.

    Cons

    If you don't work hard, it's competitive and you will not make a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    "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.

    Great management, decent pay, open door policy, room to advance and grow. Great work atmosphere!

    Cons
