Over Worked for VERY little pay and now bad Benefits
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Waco, TXNovember 18, 2017
When i first started with this company it was great to work for, but these last few years it has changed so much and went down hill. More work, but no better pay. Matter in fact just cut the 401k down to 1% and decutable went up to $4300. We used to get paid what we sold but that changed as well now we only get paid once it has been delivered and that is hard when everything is most of the time on back order. Paid check no longer consistan.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots of Them

Good job, but management is terrible.
N/A (Former Employee) –  Terre Haute, INNovember 10, 2017
The job was easy, and the money was ok but management is incompetent. I mean they're either yelling at each other or sitting around on their phones. They'll treat you like you're beneath then and not like a coworker. I wouldn't recommend working here unless you want to hate your job.

Good place to wor but lacks career advancement
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Aurora, COOctober 16, 2017
Typical workday is full of hard work. Both physically and analytically. Learned business logistics, shipping and receiving and epuipment operation. Upper management was kind and engaging, however direct supervisors seem to need to justify their jobs on a regular basis and before my departure made the work environment difficult.
Pros
Good upper managment, stable well run company
Cons
Middle managment didn't feel secure enough to let associates suceed

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Spokane, WAOctober 12, 2017
I was a store manager at Furniture Row for years. I had no work life balance and was working sometimes 80+ hours a week. So when you break the amount of money you make down to an hourly rate is it VERY little for the amount of work that is required and expected. This company is sold to its employees as a family oriented company but that is not the case. They give you very little tools to be successful and you are thrown into the fire.

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Harker Heights, TXSeptember 20, 2017
If you look at it as a learning tool, it's a great place to network and to learn how to engage people to want to listen to you. The hours are long and honestly, pretty slow. But usually when things picked up it was non-stop from open to close. Overall not a bad place to work.

Decent pay but terrible management
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Lonetree, COSeptember 19, 2017
In working at Furniture Row, I learned the importance of sales and meeting goals. It was a great company to work for but I realized that the management was lacking. I have owned my own companies: Hardwire Integrations LTD, and Fyahside LTD and know how important team motivation and camaraderie are to a venture. I honestly did not feel this in working with this company, however would not say anything bad about the compensation or benefits.
Pros
compensation and benefits
Cons
management, cutthroat environment

Good Culture Good Values Stuck in the past
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Lone Tree, COSeptember 15, 2017
Good company and values. An opportunity to make a good living and a lot of money at a cost. Just dont have an opinion on how things should be done. Just be quiet and do your job and they will treat you great. The company believes if it aint broke dont fix it. No matter how old the principles are.
Pros
Great money opportunity
Cons
Don't speak bad about anything ever

Sales Rep (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKAugust 25, 2017
Furniture row is a pretty good place to work if you can figure out how to balance the sales and getting your sales loaded out. You aren't paid on your sales but on the items that are loaded out.

Always up and down
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Draper, UTAugust 23, 2017
They pay everyone off of commission and are very quick to micro manage if your numbers are looking low. You work long days and will not get any benefits until you've been there a year. It is often a competition between co-workers and there is very little honesty -- co-workers will poach your customers and take your sales.

Good place, but the hours aren't awesome
Sales Consultant/Manager Trainee (Current Employee) –  Marion, IAAugust 18, 2017
I think it depends from store to store, and the managers you deal with everyday, but I really have enjoyed working here. They have a very different hiring process and hire based on how good of a person you are, and they train you to sell (This is a great place if you have been timid of sales jobs, because they truly are a different kind of furniture store).
The cons are definitely the hours, because people are free on evenings and weekends to buy, that's when you work (and its typically 11 hour days, which with good coworkers is fine). If you're younger and have more of a social life, its difficult to balance. Commission is for almost all types of employees here, which sounds scary, but its really just different. The big con with that is, a lot of places that want to know how much you make tend to either A) shy away from you (think renting apartments) or B) make you go through extra hoops (think getting a loan for a house.
Pros
Good pay (usually), Not a typical sales job, the coworkers are great
Cons
hours, no social life, hard to get other things due to how you're paid

Long hours on your feet and the management training program is slow. Worked mostly six days a week for 12 hours which made this job a family life killer.

Great place to advance if you don't have a family.
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MOAugust 1, 2017
Good district manager. Upper management tries to listen to the feedback from stores, but like all big companies is so focused on making every store the same.
Pros
Extremely good compensation.
Cons
Hours of operation leave little time for personal life.

Manager Trainee (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLJuly 26, 2017
There is a lot of miscommunication inside of the stores that causes added daily drama. The people that work there are not adults. They are children in suits who have no business running any of the stores they do. this location will probably close.
