A typical day for me at Rooms To Go consist of quite a bit. I was responsible for selecting furniture orders, speaking to and directing customers when assistance was needed, maintaining the cleanliness of the showroom, patching and painting the showroom walls, hanging new pictures and positioning art. Also we would have a delivery truck come in once – more... every week, sometimes twice. We would unload the truck and devote 12 hours out of our day to assemble furniture. Sometimes we would finish before 12 hours was up and sometimes we would go over 12 hours, depending on the size of the truck.
It was awesome though. I learned quite a bit, working for Rooms to Go. The managers were awesome but my General Manager was amazing. That man hired me and I worked for him for 3 successful years. He showed me the ins and outs of the business and not only how to be a great and honest worker but how to be a man.
My co workers were pretty decent. It's just like working at any other place though. You have a variety of people that you're working with. A lot of different personalities that you encounter. But it was good because everyone treated each other as family.
The hardest part of the job was trying to meet the deadline of completing the truck that we would receive every week.
What was most enjoyable about the job was fixing pieces of furniture that were damaged. I loved the challenge, especially when no one else knew what to do. – less
