Great team
Sales (Former Employee), Hayward,CAMay 30, 2014
Pros: sundays always off
Cons: may require overtime
If you are interested in a customer service environment this is it. They have a great manager who knows the business very well. Has a very nice showroom and great merchandise. They're pay is competitive and the experience you will gain from working there will be able to get you anywhere. The customers can get a little difficult at times but with the right training you will know how to respond professionally.

Great Learning Experience
Credit Manager (Former Employee), Winslow, AZApril 29, 2014
Pros: open communication, family oriented, great bonus incentives
Cons: lack of health care coverage in rural areas.
You will always be learning at this business. Everyone is cross-trained to fill-in or help out. If you want to learn about sales and customer service this is a good place to learn.

Management has an open-door policy and open communication. If you have any questions or do not understand how to do your job, they will take the time to show you how or answer your questions

The hardest part of the job is the amount of time you have to put into your work to be successful, but the best part of the job is knowing you worked for that success.

Most enjoyable part of this business is getting ready for the special events for customers and showing the customers how much you valued their patronage.

Delivery Technician (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZApril 24, 2014
Pros: free lunches at times.
Cons: dealing with heat, lifting heavy items. 100-200 pounds.
I always on the go and on the road and I got along with every manager that I have had as well as other employees. The work schedule was pretty flexible and overall just a good company to work for. Some late nights working and some early days out. Depended on the workload.

Good job
Office Manager/Sales Manager (Former Employee), Kissimmee, FLMay 25, 2013
Good place to work but they have a high turnover rate for store management. They have great benefits & a family atmosphere. Remember to keep your sales up or you risk having your job threatened. Usually it's by a store manager or district manager.

Pros: overtime

They fired my first boss who was a really nice guy but the new manager didn't know what he was doing and was kinda bipolar. He thought everything should have been done 10 times faster than possible

Divisional Manager (Former Employee), East Coast of FloridaMarch 2, 2012
Pros: sunday's off
Cons: long hours
Just like retail with collections. Dealing with people who have little, poor or no credit.

November 19, 2012

The division manager in the Largo, Pinellas area is definitely not good for this company, being controlling and arrogant does nothing for employee morale or motivation. How can upper management expect their store managers to excel when their manager is a micro-managing clown??
