    Pros

    Easy money if you are good in sales! Save up your money.. because you will make plenty of it.

    Cons

    Extremely controlling environment. No 401k, no retirement plan. This is not a long term/career option. Quotas constantly change and you just never know what to expect. Simply: STAY AWAY!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so bias towards your favorites.

    I worked at Gallery Furniture full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Earnings potential and continuing education were pros working for this company. The free food and weekly pay was also a plus.

    Cons

    The extremely long hours (for 2 months I worked everyday over 75 hours per week), the confusion of who your direct boss that you take your orders from was very disruptive. The lack of a true HR department to truly express your concerns was also a major problem.

    Advice to Management

    Better work life balance

    I have been working at Gallery Furniture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    they provide lunch, nice stores and above average pay.

    Cons

    You are expected to be a whipping dog for your first 3-5 years. You get cussed at and made to feel like you are nothing but a number. The owner is very two faced. He will give you great pay and other things that other companies will not. Just expect not to have any free time, to be called out for any mistake in front of everyone else in the company, be called names and be bullied by the owner and other people that has been there longer than you. It feels like you have to give up your life for the better pay and you also have to ready to live in constant fear that you may walk in and find that you do not have a job for no reason other than the owner was in a bad mood and you did something that pissed him off. Right to hire, right to fire.

    Advice to Management

    look at what successful companies are doing for training and recruitment. I am worried that when the company has changed to a point that there is no going back to what made the place great in the first place and that the personal views of the owner is starting to effect everyone there personally. There is no clear chain of command after the owner. He has made a company that is great and he has done so much for the city and more, but until he starts putting more effort into grooming people to take his place and less into micro managing, I fear that once he is going the company will self destruct in no time.

    Pros

    High wages, free food on site

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Expected to work 55 plus per week. Mattress Mack throws things, yells at employees, terminates at random. My way or the highway is Mack's management style. There is no structure below Mack; the company will likely collapse when he dies. The money is great, but it's not worth having to put up with being demeaned, or hearing others be demeaned, on a daily basis.
