Pros: great place to work if your a vendor
Cons: not being a vendor
my problem with this employer was management. floor managers or sales vs. floor can have objectives which are at odds. as a sales specialist in flooring, my job directive was to greet customers, assess needs sell measure(flooring) build quote and call customer to close sale,right? wrong! Idiot floor manager thought I should spend my time cleaning up a boxed furniture mess in another department, something fat boy could have done himself. All he does is walk around. The duty of a salesman( who they pay a lot of money)is to sell. After all, we bring in1/3 to 1/2 of all our weekly reciepts, right? I have nothing against work or maintaing my department, its the same work to clean-up flooring as it is to pull sold materials. these are things you do when you are not engaged in a sale. this is called priorities and I know what they are. SELL FIRST, CLEAN LATER!!! RIGHT? RIGHT! Another thing was the odd concept of what was called chinese overtime. you can work up to 50 hrs a week, but your pay tails off from time and a half after 40 to very little by the 50th hr.
This was way back in 2003 so I dont know if they still do that.it might be illegal in texas now.
