You put in alot of time and effort to close a sale. Sometimes visit their home with an HDesigher and make an apoontment for them to come back so you can try to sell them more stuff to keep your manager happy. You close the customer and celebrate your hard work only to find out the delivery went bad because the warehouse messed up or scratched the furniture. Guess what? No commision. For that sale.

Pay employees when furniture is sold. I worked in Tyler Tx store. You wait almost a month for first paycheck and manager there is horrible!! Watches every single thing you do. I had 30 yrs in sales and hated working there!!! Cannot sit down all day...Can't eat in break room. Criticized about every little thing. This job sucks.

Not have so many unattainable quotas to meet each month. Management needs to focus less on their numbers that are not always attainable due to warehouse problems, delivery damage, lack of quality control of the products they sell. Sales staff get commission only after the furniture is delivered successfully which many times doesn’t go very good. Fix the warehouse and delivery problems before blaming salespeople for not making their drlivery numbers. See the domino effect which leads back to the sales staff that always gets the blame when other department fail to do their job.

I'm a current employee. This place is not a equal opportunity workplace. It's a good ol boys club. If your not in the circle then you dont have a chance of advancing. They dont promote within. They bring rookies off the street and hire them as managers. The Dallas market managers treat their people like second class citizens. It's pretty sad really. This used to be a great company to work for. Until they get rid of their upper managers then this place will continue to fail.

All the issues with this company start at the top. Replace several of the upper management and this place could be good again

Bring back the family atmosphere, stop sneaking behind people's backs and building cases to fire them or run them off. Confront them, talk, train and educate and make a better worker. That's the key to sucess. Be aware of what your employees are capable off
