Very team oriented. Excellent place to work.
Interior Designer/Sales (Former Employee) –  Riverside, CAAugust 11, 2017
I enjoyed the fact that this pace ran the job as if co-workers were family which really motivated us to make more sales, we worked as a team to make our monthly bonuses and even had some friendly competitions each day. Each day your start out with a manager giving you a uplifting pep talk and it really starts off the day on a great note. You also got free food very Saturday and Sunday and you get free drinks and starbucks coffee and cookies daily.
Pros
Free food, team oriented, great environment.
Cons
Didn't pay enough for Designers

It's a good company, on paper
Bedrooms Department Lead / Dining-Elements Lead (Former Employee) –  San Leandro, CAJuly 31, 2017
The structure and the culture of the company really is amazing - free catered lunches every weekend, decent compensation, and an impeccable selling strategy and business model. But even the best company can have it's problems when the wrong people are placed in positions of management.

Not the best place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  La Mirada, CAJuly 27, 2017
Customer service department is very stressful. Most of the calls I recieved were very angry and rude customers. Policy are constantly changing and Management doesn't communicate properly on what is going on in the department. There are some supervisors that are rude and give attitude if you try to ask for assistance. There is a point system the company goes off of, if you call out you acquire points( even if you have a doctor's note), once you hit 10 the company can ask you to leave. Living spaces has very poor communication with its customers regarding any and all issues going on with their orders. There is no communication between stores and customer service, the store says one thing and customer service says another thing and then customer service deals with the angry and rude customer. It's not a great place to work.
Pros
Free lunch on weekends
Cons
Communication, point system, management, and changing policy

If you need money do it, if not, dont even walk in.
Product Specialist (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZJuly 23, 2017
Absolute garbage. "Non-commission" is what we are, but we still have to stalk and persuade you to buy this knock off furniture. No room for advancement, paying employees completely different wages for the EXACT same amount of work, hours, and knowledge. Most people started at $12, some lower, some ridiculously higher to about $23 an hour for the SAME work??? God awful management, don't care, don't listen, but stress communication to an annoying extent. With a insanely high turn over rate, about 30 employees left in 3 months; along with the ENTIRE management team. In comes the new MIT, absolutely atrocious person, talks at people, doesn't listen, spends time on her phone, lost $20K on a holiday, annoys all employees. Other management seemed okay, but I didn't give them the time of day to prove me otherwise. 80% of employees were 3 months in or less. If you need money fast, go here. They'll hire anyone and you might get a better wage than anybody else in order to tempt you to stay. Otherwise, do not bother.
Pros
Catered lunch on the weekend; paid every week
Cons
Sporadic hours, 4-12 hour shifts, no benefits, management

Blind leading the blind
Guest Services Agent (Former Employee) –  La Mirada, CAJuly 17, 2017
I worked for them briefly, trained for 4 weeks then was on the floor for two weeks, was never acknowledged by my manager on how it is going. When you ask for assistance on the floor you are looked down upon even if you are new. You get attitude from the floor support and the managers. I worked at their call center, honestly, 95 percent of the calls are complaints where something has gone wrong with their delivery or merchandise. It also seems as if they are bothered to assist.
Pros
Lunch on the weekends
Cons
Being talked down to by floor support, Management does not care

Manager (Former Employee) –  La Mirada, CAJuly 12, 2017
Long hours, you work every holiday or double shifts. There is a hidden agenda within managers. They already know who the next manager is before the interview process is even completed.
Pros
They provided Lunch on holidays and Sundays
Cons
To many to list

Design Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  ScottsdaleJuly 10, 2017
If you're a designer, and your management is under 30,.. don't plan on being there too long. They are total clueless, and most of their hires are now part of the barrio.
Pros
none
Cons
Very poor quality management, leadership, and policies

Not much room for advancement. Not really good options for healthcare. No matter how hard you work it seems they still pick favorites. Its good for short time work.

Just don't do it.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Glendale, AZJuly 1, 2017
If you enjoy having a life, do not work here. You are required to work weekends and they do not work with your availability. Management is changed so often and their are so many new employees it's ridiculous! They say it's non commission but it feels like it is. You have goals you have to meet everyday and you pretty much stalk customers who come in. If you do one thing wrong or differently than anyone else you get lectured on how you're suppose to do it. The only reason I would recommend this job is if you need one ASAP. They pretty much hire anyone.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Management, hours

Refused to provide information
Workforce Management Analyst (Former Employee) –  La Mirada, CAJune 2, 2017
The company refused to provide certain information that they are required to. Since I was getting the answer of going back and forth, I decided to email the CEO and leave it at that. I did not receive anything back.

I would also caution that Living Spaces has been outed by WikiLeaks as an intelligence gathering service. Just a word to the wise.

Terrible.
RETAIL SALES ASSOCIATE - PRODUCT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Glendale, AZ 85308May 27, 2017
Worked there for quit awhile and at the beginning I looked forward to coming into work but later on, it was terrible. Even if youre a hard worker, loved by everyone, even customers who would come back and ask for you, they will still end up treating you poorly. They say they are non-commission but be prepared because its like they are. They will be on you about making your goals and making a lot of sales and yes, its sales that's your job, its understandable but they will be on you 24/7 about it, nonstop and follow you around the sales floor trying to do "Roleplays". As I was a sales specialist, I was getting paid 11 an hour, and as people were being lost because of poor management and the way they were treated, they would hire new hires and automatically pay them 12+ which is so unfairly to do from a lot of people actually having to work their way up to get a raise or even become full time.
Pros
Free lunches, Other Employees
Cons
15 minute breaks, 30 minute lunches, Management
