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

    Pros

    Don't have to be on your feet all the time, free water and sometimes food.

    Cons

    The owner only cares for money and pressures management and management encourange cheating, stealing sales and customers. A lot of drama and backstabbing. Since it is a commission job and they don't pay you hourly, they make you work up to 50 hours weekly. They take the cost of customer's gifts and discounts out of sales paychecks. Have to deal with angry customers bceause of the false advertising. Sales people have to tag the whole store every week, Haynes using a free labor.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Working them to death doesn't make them more efficiant. Be more understanding, if employee has kids or other dependents and have to be absent to take care of them. Stop ignoring your top sales favorites stealing customers.


  3. "Not worth the BS"

    Pros

    Only 40 hours a week.
    Two days off a week.
    They will buy food for you if it is super busy.

    Cons

    The managers have there favorites. All of the employees except for the top 3 or so who has been working for Haynes for 10 plus year complain constantly about how much they hate working at Haynes and as soon as they find something else they are out. People talk to negatively about working for this company they will not let people talk in groups even if it super slow.

    Advice to Management

    Make it fair to your staff. Stop giving your favorite employees leads and handing out there cards to customers that are already with another salesperson.

    I worked at Haynes Furniture (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They did offer good training on their products. It's possible to make over $4000 in one week in commission. They fed us lunch quite often.

    Cons

    Often times the furniture a customer ordered would never come in. After months of waiting many of them would cancel their order, so the sales reps would not get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Many of my associates would complain about the unfair advantage the sales guys in bedding had. The furniture sales people wanted opportunities to work bedding all day on rotation.

    I worked at Haynes Furniture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Various shifts and extra incentives, C4529

    Cons

    Constant back biting, rampant reverse discrimination , (arrogant , conceited, and anti family management attitudes toward the employees). Intimidation from management. , overpaid vice presidents. Too many long term representatives who stick their nose in everybody's business. Being forced to work on your day of worship. Managers who don't understand family a family crisis/emergency.

    Advice to Management

    Please start treating employees like human beings instead of numbers in a system. Please stop religious discrimination. It is against the law. One time a manager made unkind remarks about an employees religion in a anti-Semitic manner.

    "Sales Person"

    Pros

    Being a commission salesperson you have unlimited earning potential. Enjoyed the ongoing professsional training and professionalism of the management.

    Cons

    Being a commission salesperson you have to work when other people are off and can come shop. This means working nights and week-ends often. There is flexibility with having a day off during the week that means you can get all of your errands done.

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of interesting people and assist them in finding furniture that fits there needs wants, and desires.

    Cons

    You can go into deficit if your hourly pay is more than what you deliver for the week.

    Advice to Management

    We should be paid a base rate plus commission. People would be so much happier working there and would not continuously look for other jobs.

    Pros

    lots of locations and constant turnover mean there are opportunities to move and grow within the company, if you are able to survive.

    Cons

    poor pay and always the fear of layoff unless you are a potentially high earning sales employee or family member.
