General Manager (Former Employee) – Bogalusa, LA – April 7, 2017
Focus was growth thru sales by telemarketing and flier the area. Time management was a must to ensure each area of the business was accomplished by the end of the day. Each day a certain percentage had to be met in collections to achieve your weekly company standard by the end of the week. A certain number of sales had to be achieved by the end of the week as well. I enjoyed working with my team and putting a plan in place to achieve each goal.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Shawnee, OK – April 1, 2017
On a day to day basis i had to manage the sells floor and hit the daily and month sales goals that were required by the company standers. Also had to do sales marketing on a day to day workday, I worked a average of 50 to 55 hrs per week or even more if needed. The work atmosphere was okay a lot of daily issues with co-workers but non the less was fun.
GERNERAL MANAGER / SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Puyallup, WA – March 8, 2017
Great place to work if you are sales driven and don't mind working long hours! A typical day would include making sales calls, business to business marketing. Calling past due accounts and holding associates accountable to ensure daily, weekly and monthly goals are met.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – March 7, 2017
This was a decent place to work and if you stayed long enough you could advance into management. However some of that had to do with a high turnover ratio.Fortunately I was single because of the hours the job might be stressful for an individual married with children.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – NC – February 11, 2017
There is absolutely no room for advancement. You can out work your GM and still no acknowledgement for the work done. This is by far the worst RTO company I've worked for. The pay for the work you do is poor especially being an "assistant" to the GM. They have no set pay scale. New employees with no experience can come in making more then you.
I love the customer interactions
The Manager doesn't have what it takes to be the GM
Great place at first, then quickly turned for the very worse.
Assistant General Manager (Former Employee) – New Mexico – January 31, 2017
This was the first in my life of working that I have never been compensated for time worked. Worse company in history to work for. I would never recommend it to anyone. Regional does not know the answer to a lot of questions and everyone above him makes excuses for his actions. You give your all with no return!!
Not paid for hours worked. Lake of knowledge by upper management.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Odessa, TX – December 29, 2016
I worked there over a year and gave my 110% but with the manager I had I wasn't reimbursed. I used my personal vehicle to pick up merchandize and to run past due accounts and was never paid back. I was promised a raise 3 months in and they took a whole year. The regional manager has good intentions but I'm not the only one he's over promised to and under delivered. Management seems all over the place. They're great people but I never felt like my job was secure, doesn't matter how many sales you get, it's never enough.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Ocala, FL – October 7, 2016
The company has changed a lot over the past few years and most the changes have been for the best and the company is more solid as a result. RTO is a performance based business and if you can come to work every day with the right attitude and do right by your staff and especially your customers, you'll do great.
If you just want a pay check, it might not be for you.
If you meet or beat the companies expectations (weekly standards), you'll most likely be promoted and increase your salary. The best part of the job is working closely with the same people inside of a store and becoming a team and they almost become like a family.
The difficulty in RTO and not just Buddy's is finding work/personal life balances. I find that if you work hard while you're at work and do what you're supposed to do, you won't have to work insane hours. If you try and take short cuts and fail at making quick decisions, you'll probably sink instead of swimming.
The company has great benefits and a 401K after six months. Pay is above average and overtime is pretty much mandatory for most positions. There is no set schedule either, it all depends on how busy a store is, how many customers you serve and how well you do it.
This company has been great to me and my family.
Great pay and atmosphere
Do the right thing and great things will happen. Enough said.
Had a great day helping customer furnish their homes. Learned how to run a business for a independent owner. Owner was a great person to wok with. the most enjoyable part of the job was on Friday and Saturday when you got to see most of the customers.
