Pros: surrounded by beautiful furniture
Cons: terrible management. run by keystone cops.
I worked for a corporate-owned store for 3 years. It was poorly run all the way from the area director to the store manager. They would require you to work a minimum of 55 hours a week, take away days off and not tell you (we always work 6 days a week during big sales- duh!), and require you to attend conferences calls on your days off or before the start of your shift. They don't pay well and commissions are a joke. They also may give you vacation days but make you feel like you can't take them (especially not all at once for several days in a row like a --gasp-- real vacation).
Ps design assistants are really just sales people under a different title. Run for the hills design students. You won't get real design experience at LZB.
