Work hours range from 10-12 hour days and management could work 20+ days in a row. This made it hard to have time for family and friends. Commission was good and advancement is quick and easy if you are willing to put in the hard work.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Jonesboro, AR – November 6, 2013
Pros: great money if you are in the right market
Cons: long hours, weekends and holidays- not much time for a personal life.
Great co-workers help the long hours go by fast. In the right market it is very high paced and action filled along with great money. However in the bad markets there is little to no traffic which means less opportunities to make any money. I have worked in both a store in a good market and then a store in a bad market. Great job in a good market and – more... dreadful job in a bad market. – less
Relaxed work environment with strong family values.
Lead Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Little Chute, WI – November 4, 2013
Pros: relaxed work environment where i had allot of freedom.
Cons: health care was expensive and there were no raises.
I enjoyed working for this company. I was given allot of freedom to manage the delivery team how I saw fit so long as the job was done and our customers were happy. I was allowed to make changes to the way we did our jobs in an effort to make us better and more efficient. The other employees and management were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part – more... of the job was finding a way to accommodate all of our customers’ needs while keeping everyone happy. I truly enjoyed knowing that I was good at my job and for that reason I was valued and respected. – less

driver (Current Employee), denver, co – May 27, 2013
Pros: you fly for orentation
Cons: medical, milage, sitting for days apu doesnt work
the reason they give you other pay is because you run 600 miles then sit for 2-4 days then run another 600 you maybe get a 2,000 mile week. most of the time less the only reason you get a pay check is you have to ask for lay over pay and detention pay and your checks are 2 weeks in the rear so you have to keep track on paper to make sure your pay is – more... right. oh and the insurance kicks in around 6 mths from hire don't have kids because it doesn't cover well child check ups or the vaccines for them. this job is more for those who don't car about family time or are single and can live off 600 a week. it will get worse if I stay and they take out insurance. looking for a new job asap – less
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee), Killeen, TX – April 22, 2013
I loved my job. I love meeting new people. My manager, was great. He always helped me if I had a situation with a customer that was upset, taught me how to handle the problem head on. I have a friendly way about me, so it was easy for me to interact with customers. The hardest part of my job was the 12 hour work day.

If you are in right location, Pay can be good. Moving heavy furniture without medical benefit everyday is a bit to much!
Manager Trainee (Current Employee), Denver CO – January 29, 2013
Pros: great pay if in the right location.
Cons: long hours, all day moving heavy furniture.
It's not an easy job, Long hours you will work 50 plus hours each week. Including 3 to 4 days 12 hour shift. On a daily basis you are moving heavy furnitures with no compensation.
Also they promote inexperience people's at a face pace who do not have people or social skills. And they act like they care about you and your family but it's only a ploy – more... to be in your business. – less
Very dedicated to training and developing future leaders.
Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Grand Junction, CO – December 13, 2012
Pros: great commissioned pay & benefits. great opportunity for advancement.
Cons: long hours, must work holidays, eventually relocation is a must.
Loved working there. Would love to work there again if possible. I visited several Furniture Row stores, and there's always a family atmosphere. Management really does care about developing you into a leader, and give you the tools to run your own store. It doesn't stop there, you could work up the latter even higher if you choose. Great place to start – more... a career. You don't even need experience, they will train you. – less
