    Advice to Management

    go pull a 400lb piece of furniture or gun safe 60ft up by yourself and see how safe it feels. remember no back brace policy!

    I have been working at Nebraska Furniture Mart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, culture, development opportunities

    Cons

    Some departments lack good prioritization structure, causing inefficiencies and frustration on departments which deal with them (IT and Receiving, for example). Longevity of some employees results in old ways of thinking and those employees refuse to adapt to new ideas or processes which are more efficient and cost-effective.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of the departments which aren't making decisions based on ROI, but instead on "that hasn't worked before" or "that's the way we've always done it", etc.

    Pros

    They have great benefit packages and can be flexible with time off

    Cons

    Management seems to play favorites, doesn't promote the best person for the job, not all employees are held to the same standard. I felt there was no upward options for me.

    Advice to Management

    I know small things don't seem to matter right now, but they add up when hardworking employees are consistently seeing others not doing their job and not getting in trouble for it.

    I worked at Nebraska Furniture Mart full-time

    Pros

    Market average pay and great benefits. Excellent location draws customers into the store which handles all major brands at a good price. A stable and secure company.

    Cons

    Work schedule changed 5 times in my 1 1/2 yr's employed. Work was not varied and employee's did the same task 8 hr's a day, 40 hr's per week. Employee's were written up for being sick with a doctors excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for warm bodies to fill positions and treat employee's how you would like to be treated. Working under staffed leads to employee's leaving or burnout.

    I worked at Nebraska Furniture Mart (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sales are good however writing people up for returns is wrong. Also no sending a truck for a 18k order to please a customer cost me 600 in commissions then when I complained I was fired. These people suck

    Cons

    Company violates sales policies to support manager favorites and if you complain your fired. Company lies about you and will not pay unemployment. They also illegally steal your commissions. These are shady people. I plan on protesting the store.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the bottom floor sales managers. Treat woman better.
