LOVED my Managers, best Sales Team I've been apart of as of yet!
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 5, 2015
Pros: sales team flow and respect
Cons: work life balance/ commissions
Can't say enough of my DM, Manager, Assistant Manager and TEAM!! Awesome learning!! As a team we flowed well and achieved every sales goal given to us. DM took time to train me to be number one! Manager proactive and humble assembling a sales team that was a force to be reckoned with!! I took with me great experiences. Hardest part of the job was work life balance and commissions being lower than expected. Most enjoyable part of the job was the daily sales team atmosphere, working together rather independently.

Sales (Former Employee), Chicago on ElstonMarch 2, 2015
The Laz-y-Boy store on Elston Ave. has possible worst store Manager that I have had the misfortune of working with. He is
rude, abrasive and has no people skills what so ever.

The customers were great and the sales associates quite nice.
However, if you want to work with a manager that has the above
qualities...good luck!!

Fun busy company. Lacks possibilities
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Nashua, NHFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: amazing employee discount
Cons: need to work for full time
This company is great. Really admired working here, however, wanting to become a manager is like pulling out your hair. Going through training is one thing. Giving false hope of becoming a manager is a big thing. Plus you'll only work part-time as a sales representative before even having the opportunity to work full-time.

Unpleasant training experience
CSR Training (Former Employee), Monroe MISeptember 24, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: hostile trainer and mgmt. that does not seem to care
Instructor was more focused on embarrassing myself and others than actually teaching the class. I felt overwhelmed by the amount of information, complexity of the materials and details pertaining to their systems.

I felt extremely harassed and would never recommend this as a place of employment to anyone.

There isn't enough space to say what all occurred. I most definitely would prefer to be unemployed than to be used for a "whipping post."

Buiding furniture in a fun and safe atmosphere. and making a family to work with.
stuffer/trainer. (Former Employee), Tremonton, UTAugust 23, 2014
Pros: benefits, 401k, vacation
Cons: i have no cons, just sad that the plant shut down.
Productive and fun workplace, people oriented, a typical day at work was hitting our numbers for the day, working as a team where everyone worked together to get the job done in a timely manner. Set up our work station with the products that had to go out the doors first. keeping a steady, safe pace at all times. Management taught me to believe in what I was capable of doing, never thought I could train 150 employees, teaching them a trade. I enjoyed my job. I like to help people learn and have the patience for it. The hardest part of the job was being out in cells that paid piece rate. Sometimes you would get someone who didn't want to put 100% in to the work and, it hurt the others worker pay. They had to divide what they made for the day and split it up in 5-6 employees. So even the one who only gave it 50% still made the same amount of money as those that gave it 100%. I loved my job and the people I worked with at this Company.

Ripsaw Operator (Current Employee), newton msJuly 27, 2014
a typical day at work normally goes smoothly I get along with everyone never caused a problem. I take my job seriously and will do whatever it takes to make sure the job gets done (working late) etc. Management is a little strict other than that its a great work place .. the hardest part of the job is working in such little space with so much equipment. the most enjoyable part of the job is just knowing that I work in an environment where im wanted not needed.

A lot of work expected for low pay
Interior Designer (Former Employee), Duarte, CAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: people
Cons: low pay, unrealistic expectations, politics
I was brought on as a full time interior designer. Tasked to get lots of in-home consultations and increase the sales ticket. Problem is there was not a lot of foot traffic and I was mislead about how well the store did with in-homes. When I didn't perform within my first couple of weeks out on the floor after only receiving a couple weeks of training, they were getting ready to lay me off. They offered me a demotion to part time design assistant which I took because it was better than nothing and my husband at the time was unemployed and we have two little girls. The full time position was filled by the highest selling designer in our district. She was there for a couple weeks and even she couldn't pull the minimum numbers (says something about the location and foot traffic!!!) then she got injured and was not allowed to work, which meant I had to step up and perform her work. Of course at less pay and no commission. At the end of the day, the saving grace for that store was the people I worked with. they are awesome. but other than that, company doesn't look out for its employees.

Live Life Comfortably at La-Z-Boy
Design Consultant/Sales Manager (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: designing for customer to give them the finished look they want for their home.
Cons: being so busy that you don't get a break.
Working at La-Z-boy was a good experience. They gave me access to several tools to help customers. One of which was setting up Design Seminars with customers. These seminars gave the customers the ability to visualize what the finished project would look like. I enjoy helping customers with all size projects, from one room to a complete house. La-Z-boy has several ways of getting new training out to the stores; conference calls, store meetings, and e-mail. La-Z-boy is well known for chairs and sofas but they also sell casegoods. They haven't been in the casegoods business as long though. The delivery team is geared to deliver the upholstered furniture and is well educated in how the process works, but the casegoods are not as easily delivered and set up. They are learning, but it makes customer service issues slightly more difficult. In turn, it makes it tremendously harder at the store level to fix these types of issues. One way to help in easing these issues is working as a team. When a store does not have a quality team to work with, it shows in the numbers. Better the team, the better numbers and more excitement. It’s all about the profit in retail.
