Not much to say, worked there once for 2 1/2 years then a second time for almost a year, which was a huge mistake, save yourself and look elsewhere unless you like being lied to about advancements and being over worked without getting the pay for the effort you put into it.

Such a terrible company they will rip you off and don’t care for anyone but themselves. Worked there for some time and its the most cut throat atmosphere you could ever dream of. All the way from your local store to the corporate office. Do yourself a favor and don’t get involved.

Commission based, and highly competitive, especially on slow days. high turn over rate with new employees. Great overall management at store level, but poor at top. Company states that it is based on golden rule, but it is based on what makes you the most gold.
Customer service working closely with customers to help them furnish their homes. It was a fast paced enviroment. There were many times when I had to wait on more than one customer at a time and be able to give both full customer satisfaction.

Extremely unprofessional at the location I work/worked at. You cannot confide in management because it gets repeated. You will not get time with your family ever. Very low wages and advancement is based upon looks and friendship. I'm sure other locations aren't all the same. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone. Employees talk ill about customers, each other, and the company. Don't work here if you have any dignity.
General Manager/Sales Professional (Former Employee) – Maysville, KY – December 7, 2017
Working for Big Sandy was a great experience. It challenged me and taught me a lot about Retail, Management and Business, as well as being competive. It is a company that is growing at an enormous rate. Benefits were great along with vacation time accrued. They afforded my family and myself a good quality of living. I thought that Big Sandy grew larger than their staffing which caused issues in communication and execution which in turn caused unnecessary stress upon staff. But overall I would not have traded this opportunity for another.

not much home/work life balance. ...............pay is o.k....it seems that the workers that do their job get abused and taken advantage of and if issues are brought up it seems like they are truly never fixed.

The distribution center is an absolute joke. You work 60+hours per weeks, typically 3hours passed your scheduled time off every night. The pay is terrible and the benefits are a joke. Some managers are Good, but very few, the rest won't listen to the ones that are. If you want no life, no future, and a little pay for destroying your body to help them profit, Big Sandy is the place for you.

This place is a great place to work. Staff is friendly and so is management. Plenty of room for growth. Able to make extra income if driven to do so, by participating in special sales events and learning product.
Great co workers, and work enviroment
You do have to put in hours and weekends to make money on comission
