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

    Pros

    Decent Health Benefits, They are trying to create a good company culture with open communication, but are still struggling with this. They are in the forefront with their furniture and should do really well with what they have planned.

    Cons

    Lower level managers are old school and stuck in their ways. Harassment is allowed by upper management, it's very hard to really be heard by the company because you go though hoops to get to higher levels. There is no real set training for Visuals in this company, your store manager decided what you do, some want you to be a maid, other want you to do everything including act like a manager without the pay of a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Get into what works now, old ways are not the way to go, the company itself is moving forward, but store managers are not.
