    Pros

    Get to help customers bring their rooms together. Meet new people ever day. Good product

    Cons

    Always changing commission. Just when you think you've done a great job, they pay you less the next year. Coworkers are unethical but management doesn't care as long as money being made. Twelve hour work day every other Saturday

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and equal to all. Follow through on what you say you are going to do. Appreciate the efforts of those who do as they should

    I have been working at Havertys full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have work for Havertys Warehouse for 20 years. It's a good company to work for as far as moving around to different departments around the warehouse. I've done a little bit of everything. To inventory to load out material handler.

    Cons

    The con is their not willing to promote from within. I was just recently a receiving lead. I did that job for 6 years. I did everything from make sure my team and I put away the furniture in a timely manner to subbing for the supervisor whenever he went on vacation. I tried several times to get a promotion but each time got look over because the manager kept telling everyone that I wasn't ready. He doesn't really gives a reason just saying I wasn't ready. This Friday is my last day at my job.

    Advice to Management

    If the management want to keep their employees they have to start promoting within and stay engaged with the employees.
