Not a very nice place to work
Packager (Former Employee), Aberdeen, MarylandJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: there is none
Cons: lousy pay, short breaks, horrible management
Through my experience it seemed like they cater towards the employees who are committed felons rather than law biding citizens. They expect too much out of a single person who is a hard worker but don't say anything to the ones who are slacking in their duties. Expect you to dead lift merchandise 75+ pounds off the floor with no help from equipment or another employee. Short breaks, lousy pay, horrible management = not a good place to work.

working at bobs
Office Associate (Current Employee), MarylandJanuary 4, 2015
Pros: retail experience without actually having to do sales
Cons: short breaks, management changes constantly
This company is all about self sort of like a big box chains. A typical day of work in the office is morning open/setup cafe. go to office file away day before sales do morning emails and required customer calling to reschedules.The management varies but managers come and go so quick. The co workers felt like high school all over again. Hardest part of the job is nothing very easy.

BobsCares? No he doesnt.
Office Associate (Former Employee), Falls Church, VADecember 18, 2014
Pros: easy job
Cons: everything else
They do a great job of bringing people in by lying and giving false promises. After a month or so you will begin to see their true colors. The managers do nothing but play on their phones and sit on couches and never listen when there is a problem. The associates give off rude and racist remarks about fellow associates and customers, and if you even try to ask them not to you will get in trouble. Poor way of dealing with issues from such a new company, you'd think they'd be quick to resolve these issues but they dont care.

Call Center floor with cubicles
Customer Care Representative (Current Employee), Nashua, NHDecember 5, 2014
Long days of repetitive work. Great management willing to work hands on with employees. Extremely fast paced customer service. It was great helping customers, but a lot of the time they were taking their anger out on the employees. Especially when relating to the insurance plan

Long hours, thankless work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Stoughton, MANovember 19, 2014
Cons: all
Flooded sales floor with too many sales people. Only the scummiest salespeople could survive. Laid off without warning and with no job issues, write ups or any other reason. Terrible management, unprofessional and lacking in knowledge or common sense and intelligence.

I Love My Job
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Manchester, CTNovember 3, 2014
Pros: benefits, compensation, life balance, colleagues and challenges.
Fantastic company to work for, is more like a family. Every aspect of the company is great, very challenging but rewarding. I have never work for a company that took care of their employees like Bob's. I'm very lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of such great company, but most important the people that I work with.

Pit Salesroom Manager (Former Employee), Worcester, MASeptember 9, 2014
A typical work day starts by taking care of your area of focus. It's very busy but it helps the time fly by. All managers and co workers were great. Don't get me wrong we all had our moments from time to time but at the end of the day we all understood that we were a team!! That was most important to me. The pay structure was awesome; hourly and commission.

Bobs Discount Furniture / Warehouse-customer service associate
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Wilmington, DEAugust 4, 2014
Very organized company that provides great benefits including healthcare, vision, 41k, etc. Majority of my co-workers are friendly and great team members. A typical day at work includes loading and unloading trucks, assembling and placing furniture on showroom floor, as well as loading and unloading customer merchandise from and onto vehicles. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I helped get it all done. In addition, making all the customers happy and satisfied with their furniture.
