associates are great to work with
Company has changed and not in a good way and on top of that, new management is all about "the boys club" only those certain boys he chooses!...certain managers and associates are treated very poorly.

It is a great place to work but......
It's a great place to work but you never get a pay raise it a lot of work for little pay. Manager are not all of them but you have some that really don't care about you. And some that do to many other worker don't pull they end so you will work harder in the warehouse.

Bobs Discount Furniture work
Working at Bob's Discount Furniture was a little stressful on the sales side of things where I worked. It was all commission based and was heavily monitored by the management. There was some drama within the sales department time after time but it was a family oriented feeling working there. The management was very professional and did everything they could to teach and coach us to be the best sales people we could be.

Discipline
Fairfax has a manager that disciplines employees for asking questions. In other words “freedom of speech” Can you imagine that. Only a low self esteem individual would feel they were being shown up by questions. This is a violation of the NLRA

Fun place to work, dont consider as a career
Fun place to work. No pressure. Overloaded with salespeople. Sales Person considered as a disposable asset. Between other furniture stores, this place is more relaxed, can be learned good skills. Shouldn't look to it as a career path, unless, you are ok with 40k a year(average)
Pros
No stress
Cons
overwhelmed with sales and not enough training for new recruitment

An okay place to work for
I have been with the company for almost 4 years and I love the way the job welcomes you with your work ethics but the downside is I have been looked over plenty of times. With my level of skills I brought into the company and my level of knowledge about my job title, I believe I can bring more to the table that is being offered. I would love to bring my capabilities onto another company. And hopefully help build myself to help me get further in life with my soon to be career in Radiology. Bob's Discount Furniture has became a stand still for me and I would like to broaden my horizons.
Pros
Bonuses every month. And the hospitality others portray
Cons
not being seen for my level of skills i can bring

A Year And Half At Bob's
Ok workplace with average management that is STRICTLY ALL ABOUT NUMBERS. Not much room to grow within the company unless they absolutely love you. Most enjoyable part is talking with customer and passing on any knowledge. Hardest part of the job is dealing with sharks that are some coworkers thats willing to back stab you in a sec.
