Sales-driven environment

Featured review

Bob's Discount Furniture selected this as a representative review
Sole focus is on closing sales and getting credit applications and the protection plan. It helps if the salesperson is personable and persuasive. It can be fun because you can meet a lot of interesting people daily. But like any sales-driven environment it can be competitive and cutthroat at times. Sales Associates work strictly on commission not on salary. You get paid a weekly. You must work weekends and holidays when the store is open.

Pros

Great benefits package !!

Cons

You must meet the sales goals consistently

Great place to work! Pandemic slowed everything down

I absolutely love this job and the people I work with, unfortunately the pandemic slowed down business and the pay is very low. The managers truly care about their employees

Pros

Work life balance, fun environment, great pay before pandemic

Cons

Pandemic slowed down business

Nothing is ever good enough. Sales are down and youre to blame. No advancement.

Most days fairly busy during night hrs. There will b a lot of non buyers so expect your time to be wasted often. Most stores are ethnic based. So depending on your ethnic background make sure u work at the right store. If not, u wont make any money. Remember its sales.

Pros

Good people. Somewhat of an easy paycheck

Cons

Not in stock products makes it hard to hit goal for commission at times.

Its sales. With long waits for deliveries right now

Low inventory to try and sell something that's 4 to 5 months out. Its very hard to do. Don't get me wrong it is possible, but the cancelation rate is ridiculous.

Nice place to work but no security

I worked with great people and some decent management. And they invest a lot in training you. However in my opinion they don’t give you enough time to develop and become proficient. If you are not reaching your goals they will kick you to the curb without a second thought. You were absolutely dispensable. So unless you are already a skilled sales professional who can make it with commissions this isn’t a job for you.

Pros

Free candy and ice cream

Cons

Short lunches, work on weekends and holidays

Does not care about certain departments

This company will preach on and on about their core values, but will never uphold them. We are continuously being told to mislead customers, and just being in the building is draining. No one has fun, no one care about each other. All the company cares about is money, and will actually not even cancel orders where the customers want to cancel, to avoid having our numbers look bad. Just really bad business practices.

Great company model, but needs BIG changes.

Great promise but with today's market, there is no money to be made. Management made working here terrible, not fun at all. Draw against commission is unfair and scummy, especially when the company does not provide the merchandise. How do you expect anyone to be motivated when there is nothing to sell. Management is terrible, especially upper. They expect you to reach unrealistic sales goals because they have other upper management breathing down their necks. The store I worked at needs a serious change in upper management, it doesn't even feel like a Bob's.

Pros

Pto, Multiple programs to advance and Friends made

Cons

Management, Draw against commission (not fair, especially since there is no stock), Toxic Culture, Micromanaging, Unrealistic sales goals, Stress, and expected to work during lunch and breaks.

Good Company Just No Inventory

Was a good company to work for pre covid but now no inventory and your customers have to wait multiple months for their purchase mind you as a sales person you don’t get paid till it’s delivered.

Not what it seem they don't follow their core values

Favoritism. They made the job seem so nice but it wasn't. There was people who should of been fired but they didn't fire them. They let harassment, people who was high out of there mind everyday go like it was nothing. I seen them not hire people based on social media which led to them not hiring people and it was times were the office staff was very understaffed.

Pros

Sometimes it would be free food in the break room

Cons

Management, for the job low pay, never getting out of work on time

Can make cash

Inventory has been really iffy since Covid has hit. Before Covid though, making 6 figures at this place was as easy as blinking your eye. With Covid here you can expect to bring home $70k if you are on top of your stuff and sell what’s in stock. Management has been a tad bit stressful with micromanaging but that’s the life of retail

Pros

The downtime

Cons

Get paid for what you sell
