    Everyone from the ceo down to lower level management was helpful and shared a sense of team.

    Nothing outside the norm for a buisness this size. Some micromanagement issues but overall a well run company!

    I have been working at HOM Furniture part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some employees and customers are generally nice and give you something to smile about for the day. Also, HOM does donate and work with many charitable orginizations which I think is great.

    Cons

    Constant schedule changes, employees not being held to similar standards within their position, high turnover, and it seems as if something gets added/switched in routine workflow activities more than need be.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of your employees more.

    Pros

    Home Management Asks Current Employee's to Write Positive Reviews on Glass Door or writes them themselves. Don't Believe these Glowing Reviews. I Never Met anyone At HOM who would actually write one.

    Cons

    Out of all the Employee's I knew only 10% were Happy to Be There. Many 10, 11 and 12 Hour days. All Weekends. Management Does Not understand a Persons Personal Life. Actual Hourly Wage Is around $10 per hour when You calculate it out.

    Advice to Management

    Set Up a Realistic Schedule for Actual People who Have a Life Outside HOM. Offer Paid Sick Days and Every Other Weekend Off.

    Pros

    Started at the bottom in Sales and climbed to the top. HOM gives you all the opportunity you can ask for if you want it.

    Cons

    Not always as much opportunity for advancement as I would like to see, but times are changing with people retiring.....

    Advice to Management

    Keep the door to the roof open and we will continue to be successful!
