Would not recommend working here
Point of Sale Associate (Current Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNSeptember 16, 2016
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.

Sales goal-driven environment.
Design Consultant (Former Employee) –  Roseville, MNMarch 2, 2016
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.
Cons
The pay structure

Very high employee turnover..Micromanaging nightmare!! Stay Away!
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Becker MN - Distribution CenterFebruary 26, 2016
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.
Pros
Free luches a few times a year. Jeans on Fridays.
Cons
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!

Shift Leader/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Maple Grove, MNMay 8, 2015
The best part was co-workers, and mangement, and customers. The hardest was customers. A typical day would be answering phones, and sitting on the computer.

Poor Management
Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Becker, MNMarch 10, 2014
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.

Depends on the store you go to
Sales & Design Consultant/Sales Lead (Current Employee) –  Roseville, MNOctober 19, 2013
If you work at the main store or a stand alone store, you can make good money. Otherwise you may not be as successful..
