    I worked at Home Zone Furniture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent hours with manageable scheduling. Nice Benefits and Compensation. Management always improving/listening. Promotions almost exclusively from within.

    Cons

    Phased out Commissions. All hands on deck during weekends, no exceptions. Service Department in disarray during employee change-up Outdated tattoo and piercing policies.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, as the company gets better every day. Bring back the commission rates as an optional form of payment. Make sure Delivery Department, Service Department, and all stores are better equipped to be on the same page, possibly hiring more customer support?

    I have been working at Home Zone Furniture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Paid weekly, friendly environment, reasonable sales goals, attainable bonus structure, positive reinforcement and praise, and very rapid advancement.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekends and holidays, extremely strict cell phone policy, favoritism, long and hard hours for mgmt, and poor work/life balancing, no raise structure. Promotion comes with a one-way ticket away from home store (ie, move from San Angelo, Lawton, or Round Rock to DFW).

    Advice to Management

    While promoting from within is spectacular, some individuals are promoted for exceptional sale numbers and not for people skills. Unfortunately, sometimes management traits can't be trained or taught when lacking the human skills necessary to keep a team together. Also, I don't believe manager should work 51 hrs a week. The pay doesn't compensate all they do for their stores. Makes a sales rep fear promotion as they don't...

    I have been working at Home Zone Furniture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A relaxed and very forgiving atmosphere, the owners really do care about the employees and I did get an amazing deal on some sweet furniture! I give interviews on occasion and sincerely tell the candidate that this is the best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    Maybe not as benefit rich as other companies but for me, it is a great fit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Hire someone to be dedicated to online chat.

    I have been working at Home Zone Furniture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a great company that takes care of it's people. The career opportunities are real and what they tell you is always possible if you work hard. I came from a pretty diverse job history with no sales experience and without a degree. I have now been running a store for them for 4 and a half years. I have seen many people who work hard get rewarded and be able to move up. The work and family life balance is there if...

    Cons

    Honestly there aren't any for me. The expectations are set during interviews and so nothing is a surprise. Just listen to the expectations and if they're a fit for you then you're probably a fit with us!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what we are doing and always keep striving to be better!

    This company and my current position are a perfect fit for me. One of the very best and most fun jobs I have ever had. I NEVER have that dreaded feeling on coming to work Monday morning!
