There are no days specifically designated as sick days. However, there are personal days and vacation days earned based on how long you've been with the company. I believe after the first three months, you start earning 4 hours of each (personal and vacation) per month worked. After December 31 of every year, your days off are erased and you start over.

Bassett is poised to well and increase their market share in the years to come. The company is the manufacturer and the retailer so they "get it" on both ends.

Report question

You are compensated by a weekly draw against commission. (commission only)
Depending on your location and the performance of the store, you could make from around 23k upward. I recommend asking the designers at the specific store that interests you what their range is. The store I was at had an average commission range of approximately $800 to none per month on top of the $450/wk draw. (about $1800 to $2600 per month) Other stores had ranges that stretched higher.
I'm sorry that there really is not a simple answer. It is so inconsistent. So many factors are undependable/influential: store location, time of year, the economy, etc.
