Unprofessional
Commission sales (Former Employee) –  Farmingdale, NYDecember 3, 2018
The atmosphere at Bobs is unprofessional, with little or no expectations except for sales performance. Dress code and professional behavior on the floor is unacceptable. Management is lacking in supervision or guidance for sales staff.
Pros
Availability of flexible hours
Cons
Low morale of sales staff

Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHNovember 27, 2018
Most customers were very happy. I am a generally courteous person and treated everybody with respect. However, as with all customer service positions, there is that 1 person out of a hundred that's verbally abusive.
Pros
Fun staff
Cons
Very rude customers

Best job I’ve had
Forklift Picker (Former Employee) –  Shorewood, ILNovember 5, 2018
Bobs Discount Furniture furniture was a very fast paced and tuff job, it requires teamwork and a lot of strength for a long time. Enjoyed working there and learned so much from my experience.

Amazing Company, Horrible Store.
Warehouse Lead (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIOctober 29, 2018
I was with my location since we had our grand opening last year. I spent weeks training ahead of time at the location they rented for us. During the final day of training and the entire week of grand open almost every meal was catered by Bobs and it was the best experience with a company I had ever had, it really felt like the company cared about us, if it was willing to spend so much money on its employees and invest so heavily in their training and success. Unfortunately this did not last, as the months went by we started losing managers, and the people who were hired our brought over to replace them did not do this company justice. The culture of this place became so muddled in profit that the ideas of teamwork and leadership fell out the window, it became a numbers game. The current management at this store does not care about the well being of their employees, only about how much furniture they can sell for as little effort as they can give. After grand open, new employees in all departments were hardly trained at all, then expected to be held accountable for their lack of training. Scheduling was a mess. Certain managers would manage departments that were not theirs and that they had no training in. It was a complete disaster for all the employees involved. The turnover rate at this store is monumental, and for good reason. Overall the COMPANY seems like an amazing one, but the location I worked at has been one of the worst experiences of my life.
Pros
Good benefits, competitive pay
Cons
No communication, short tempered managers, No yearly raises

Routing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Taftville, CTOctober 28, 2018
If you did not grow up in the area you were considered an outsider. No management support to learn job responsibilities.

need to take time with supervisor who are not familiar with furniture delivery business.

Great workplace cammraderie
Product Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Redlands, CAOctober 25, 2018
Being a product support specialist, you have to interact with the sales associates as well by picking their sold furniture and staging it in our warehouse until the customer comes to pick up their merchandise. Unloading trucks is made very fun, mainly by our manager allowing us to be relaxed as long as work was getting done efficiently.

You can make decent money, but working all weekend isn't ideal
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Stoughton, MAOctober 25, 2018
This is your typical sales job. When a customer comes in, you each take turns greeting them and working with them to help them buy furniture. If you try, you can make pretty good money here. You receive a weekly paycheck, but the total amount for the month is taken out of your monthly check, so income can vary from month to month. The biggest problem here is that full time associates are required to work Saturday and Sunday every week.

Picker (Former Employee) –  Taftville, CTOctober 16, 2018
In order to succeed in this company you have to be a hard worker and be motivated. You must be strong enough to be able to lift all the heavy furniture.

Sales Associate (Bilingual-English/Spanish) (Current Employee) –  Burbank, ILOctober 15, 2018
Must meet sales goals by 3rd month or sales associate is written up. Sales Associates follow an up system to take next guest. Open floor may lead to anyone being able to take your guest if you aren't nearby.

Interesting work environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Burbank, ILOctober 15, 2018
Management enjoys seeing team members go at each others throat because it keeps people on their toes. They don't believe in the mission, they believe in making sales no matter how you have to do it. If you are about that life go forward if not, run as fast as you can.
Pros
Good money
Cons
The people closest to you will be the ones to take your sale and no personal life.

Great entry level Sales job
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Township of South Brunswick, NJOctober 11, 2018
The job is a great start if you would like to begin in sales. Management in certain stores lack professionalism. Negative daily meetings. The pay is only 5% which isn't much, and they require certain goals that aren't always able to be achieved.
Pros
Job security, Easy job placement
Cons
Percentage of commission

Bloated Management Sinks the Ship
Associate (Former Employee) –  Shorewood, ILOctober 9, 2018
This company does not care about it's workers. If you know how to lie and bs your way through things you will move up but if you work hard and say what is wrong no one will listen to you. The managers have no idea what is going on and all have their own agendas so they can get promoted (or are too week to do anything).
