HOME FURNISHING CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – west colonial , orlando FL – December 4, 2015
Nice people to work with but no so good compensation system commission base , point percentage for product sale . make people change at the end of the month if your number are not meeting expectations. little money to make not enough to survive nor pay the bills pay system has to change to retain people , or have to have some support system outside work place , part time or espouse working too to supplement income. Great people thou I made some good friends there, Hardwood floor you stand all day , you will ruin your feet. I would not work on commission unless there is demand of the product or if the overhead do not surpass the business..
A typical day at work would be calling customers from the day or week before to check in on them on there products, Introduce products to new customers, sell warranties, communicate regularly with people
Management treated me fairly
Hardest part of job was waiting for customers to walk in. If not customers walk in business and sales got to be very stressful
Most enjoyable part of this job was meeting people from all walks of life and learning about there interests.
great discount on furniture, commision was decent
healthcare wasnt that great, during "raise" time the raises couldve have been better
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 9, 2016
Enjoyed dealing with customers and giving them what they needed in line of furniture. Hours were not the best but sufficed. Not always able to get the furniture delivered on a timely basis but overall good results.
Home Furnishings Consultant (Former Employee) – Atlanta GA – May 6, 2014
The day always started with a meeting to let us know what if any new furniture we had received.
Unfortunately a lot of the furniture was not in stock and we lost sales because of that. Management skills were lacking as they really didn't care about their employees only the bottom line.
Since this was a commission based job it was cut-throat on the sales floor. Many times if you left your customer to check on something for them another sales person would try to "steal" your customer offering them things that they really couldn't deliver.
It was not a pleasant atmosphere to work in.
meeting nice people
on your feet for 10-12 hrs, working with people who domn't care about about you
Not bad but could use some improvement in commission
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – January 13, 2015
My seven years with this company was rewarding and exciting. I must admit all wasn't pleasing at times but that's with any job. But over all I made a okay living but now seeking to improve myself in a different career path outside of the furniture industry,
only time we had free lunches is in product meeting and holidays
Assembly line worker (Former Employee) – Thomasville, GA – December 3, 2012
A typical day at work is when everyone come to work. I learned many different jobs types. The management there was very nice and understanding. My co-workers were nice to each other. The hardest part of the job for me was when I first started. Had to learn how to load and unload trucks. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we had cookouts for the employee and they families.
Sales Agent (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 30, 2015
Greeted and registered guests and issued room keys. Implemented high-impact sales and marketing initiatives, resulting in increased occupancy and profitability. Balanced all rebates and other miscellaneous charges.
I love that I have a lot of opportunities to be creative which is when I am the happiest. I love having a challenge especially if it is space related and getting to figure the puzzle out. I really enjoy my job but would like to have the opportunity to be challenged more.
