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.

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.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – October 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.
Good upper managment, stable well run company
Middle managment didn't feel secure enough to let associates suceed
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – October 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.

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.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Lonetree, CO – September 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.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Lone Tree, CO – September 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.

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.
Sales Consultant/Manager Trainee (Current Employee) – Marion, IA – August 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.
Good pay (usually), Not a typical sales job, the coworkers are great
hours, no social life, hard to get other things due to how you're paid
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – July 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.
