The direction of executive management is not consistent or long sighted. It is flippant, self-serving and greedy. This effects morale of employees obviously and the clients can see right through it no matter what. Many employees there are quite knowledgeable in the furniture industry yet do not have "design" experience. While neither is better in the grand scheme of life, it is misleading to the customer to tell them they are getting free design service. The customer justifiably expects both with that statement. Because the rules are always changing there is a level of fear of the unknown that is always in the air. That is sad as it could be the most enchanting place! it looks like it!!!!
If you enjoy a fast paced work life then this is the place to go. As a home delivery specialist, you spent at least 4 days away from home delivering furniture. Compensation was based on weight and delivery zone plus per diem and tips.

If you are a physically fit well spoken young man who can lift a 300lb piece of furniture upstairs and you are working a dead end job making less than 40k per year then this job is for you. No experience needed. They will get you your class b license and put you in a truck. You have to be away from home in a hotel at least 2 nights per week. always monday night and rotating thursday/friday nights. But you will make 50k + tips. The sacrifice is that you have a high chance of injury. And when you get injured, if its serious, they will stab you in the back, hang you by your ankles and leave you out to dry. The best thing to do is work here for 2-4 years and save up your money for something else. And buy a mattress while you are here it is 50% off wholesale. so a $2000 mattress is about 400$
Mattress discounts, $1000 per week or more
Long hours, risk of permanent disability, away from home
A typical day could vary based on the amount of transfers that would come in for the next day. I learned to constantly adapt my methodology for certain aspects of the job as there were always better ways to do different tasks. Management was well maintained at my level of work but over them was where management became questionable through certain actions they would do.

Pay was very competitive. Awesome benefits. Amazing family to work for. Co-workers became friends and family. Hours were great in comparison to a lot of furniture companies. More options than you can imagine for the customer. I started my furniture career many many years ago at FLS and I still to this day say if you can’t find it there then it doesn’t exist. They have everything!
Provides the opportunity to work with national and international clients and the environment fosters creativity. Though the job offers much training about product and provides desirable benefits, the culture is ultra competitive and often cut throat.
I love working at Furnitureland South. The people are great and the culture and comroderie is awesome in the store. As a commission only position it can be hard to make ends meet in the off months and the stress is always on you to do more and more and more. If you are cut out for this type of position then it is the place for you!
pizza every so often, discount, family events, market
