Sales Associate, Maryland - October 11, 2017
can be a good place to work,but you must be flexible and able to multi task. Example: If you are a kitchen designer you will have opportunities to work on high-end projects,but you can also expect to spend time working in the warehouse unloading trucks and putting stock away,also remember: they sell furniture and cabinets which can be very heavy so you must be able to physically handle these type items. Corporate/upper management is generally friendly to the store staff,but some store/district managers are narcissistic and sometimes put their personal agendas before the overall good of the company.The hours are long,but that is to be expected in any retail environment and compared to many retailers,their hours aren't too bad.There isn't a lot of room for advancement and they are not known for promoting from with-in:most of the store managers are hired from outside the company. Generally speaking,the ones who will fair best here are salespeople who are able to sustain themselves on commission and are willing to work around the other aspects of the job.If you are a sales producer,management will usually stay off your back and let you do your thing,you can make a good living here if you have the right attitude.This job is not for everyone,but will work for some as long as you know what you are getting into and have the ability to handle it.
