    I worked at La-Z-Boy part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    great coworkers , good products to sell

    Cons

    Are you applying for interior design assistant to do designing?creative things? Do not work here well if you want to work as a part time with too much pressure for sales, getting salary a little bit over minimum salary(no commision), you can work here. what's the difference between the sale associates and design assistants? same pay,but work more than them and have more booking design program goals because you are designer!!:) if you are given the project you don't really have time to do it just you must focus on the customers come in,for sales sales sales and being a full time workers?you don't get any commission but,sell more!than you can be a full time:) and try to sell furnitures which we do not have on the floor as showing a piece of wood samples or seeing E-catalogue with customers what's the point that customer just is ordering on amazon? if you wanna be a store manager or something in sales market well it could be a good job you can train new employees to make your pocket money Customer is not ready to buy right away ,or they don't want feel to being pressured by staffs(nobody) always we can say we don't get commission don't worry about it.but managers pressure and push associates or design assistant if they don't buy. that's always part time worker's fault

    Advice to Management

    share the commission if not,don't pressure and push them every single times after customer leave(who didn't buy today)

    I have been working at La-Z-Boy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work on design on a daily basis. You also get to work with other designers to see how they would do things compared to your own way.

    Cons

    There are no benefits and no way to move up within the company. They rarely promote people who have worked for them.
