no Idea (Former Employee) – Becker MN – September 29, 2016
I only worked here for one day so take everything with a grain of salt, perhaps this is a rare occurrence, but it was the worst experience of my life. I was never interviewed. No one would tell me how much the job paid and when I asked other employees they said that they didn't know how much they got paid until their first check arrived. They started me with no training or orientation. I didn't fill out any paperwork and didn't have a background check done on me.I assumed that they would do all of that later on in my shift, but it never happened. They had me drive a forklift also without any training or licence. The supervisor swore at me and another new guy for no reason at all. He had a terrible attitude toward everything and obviously has no idea how to treat people let alone new trainees. When I finally asked one of the supervisors there how much I would be getting paid he said $10 an hour. That's right for a job lifting furniture all day and driving a forklift. $10. You could work at a fast food restaurant for that kind of money. And then he started telling me about not burning bridges and "ticking" people off by asking these questions. So I'm ticking people off by asking how much I'm getting paid. Those are the people you will deal with if you work here! Other than the people and the pay the work is still relatively easy If they paid more and were more organized it would be a nice place to work.

Made a few friendships with fellow employees. Workload always increasing with no directions on how to do. Management very poor. Very rarely given "Good job praise or Thank you's". Management very critical on how things are done with no support or direction. Would not recommend working with Becker.
It was a Sales goal-driven environment where I was expected to greet and interact with potential customers on a daily basis.
I learned that it came very easy for me to sell our "Montage" Protection Plan to my clients.
I felt as though management was unfair at times as well as inappropriate.
The hardest part of my job was hitting unrealistic goals and if you did not hit your goal, then the amount you missed by was then deducted from your paycheck. From an entrepreneurial stand-point, this was a brilliant idea, but from a Sales / Design Consultant's stand-point, this seemed unfair and that all our of hard work was for nothing.
Very high employee turnover..Micromanaging nightmare!! Stay Away!

Perfect place for the average slacker who wants to gossip and surf the internet all day. Those of you who do slack will be promoted, and the ones who work hard every minute of every day while growing and making a position more efficient and a million times better than it was in the past....will be fired simply because you are personally not "liked" by the wrong people who will be out to get you until you are gone.
If you enjoy getting paid just above poverty, paying for insurance that doesn't cover anything, and being talked about behind your back daily while management does nothing about it, except punish you for it, then this is the place for you. Just keep in mind, within a few weeks or a few months, you will be looking for another job one way or another.
Free luches a few times a year. Jeans on Fridays.
Too many to list, Please seriously reconsider applying or accepting a job from this company, I cant tell you how many people came and went while i was there in my short time, and most were fired with no warning, Dont put yourself in a situation that will land you out of work again, Look elsewhere, there ARE better places out there for everyone!

The manager there, has been there nine years and has had no training on how to respect employees. In twenty-three years of employment thru my life, Management at Becker Furniture World is the worst I've ever seen. Stay away.
