Uncomfortable Environment
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Coppell, TXAugust 9, 2018
The people here are friendly. But the atmosphere is very uncomfortable. They are too conservative. You clock in with a time clock. You can’t clock in a little early since everyone uses that same time clock. You can’t ask your coworkers for help. The manager doesn’t want you to talk at all. Attendance is very strict. Breaks are only two 10 minute breaks. Dress code is business casual you can wear jeans but don’t abuse it or they will take it away. There are too many DONTS at this company, from day one I was uncomfortable and unhappy. They don’t make you feel welcomed or comfortable. Almost all of the employees are trying to leave the company.
Pros
Negative vibes, low moral, uncomfortable feeling, short breaks
Cons
Friendly people

Learning Experience
Guest Services (Former Employee) –  Towson, MDJuly 30, 2018
The job definitely teaches you a lot for the furniture and administrative businesses. However, the pay is not livable and the commute if you don't drive is inconvenient.
Pros
There was a lot to learn
Cons
Low Pay For Too Much Work

It was like watching kids arguing over the last shovel in the sandbox
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Florence, SCJuly 25, 2018
Everyone was stabbing everyone in the back. Some days you didn't know if you were even going to get a customer. Someone would bump you to the bottom of the list if they didn't see you when a customer walked in the door...instead they would be helping YOUR customer. You never knew what kind of mood the manager was going to be in when he arrived at work. Sales staff was given huge goals and then manager would scream when they didn't make any sales.......well you can't force people into the store and you can't physically drag them in off the sidewalk. Manager had his favorites and didn't seem to care if anyone knew. He could make the new girl in customer service cry by yelling at her in front of customers if something didn't go exactly as it should. He made some of the sales staff cry because a customer would leave without buying anything and he didn't care! Do NOT work at this store if at all possible. RUN THE OTHER WAY!
Pros
can't think of any
Cons
poor working conditions, poor pay

Stay Away
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Kissimmee, FLJuly 5, 2018
Started off liking the job ended up leaving due to Poor management, never listening to team on how to fix reoccurring issues. Backstabbing co-workers. Slow teams get easy routes, fast teams get long, difficult routes. Favoritism is played here strongly.
Poor routing made you zig zag back and forth between same cities which lead to excessive unnecessary driving and extremely long days. Due to the way we were payed we lost a-lot of money because of damaged product from PRE-LOADED trucks.Very stressful micro management which caused more issues than prevented.With the Bad Management and shady co-workers stay away..
Pros
pay, travel
Cons
management, co-workers, everything

Hardest part of the job
Loader/Packer (Former Employee) –  Braselton, GAJune 2, 2018
having to wrap, scan, and load semi trailers in 45 mins, also you have no time limit in which time you are getting off and that can be stressful if you have things to do when you get off

Decent Place to Work
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAApril 15, 2018
Too many rules for selling furniture and manager who came entry-level position up to become a manager with some 25 years experience was a bit controlling and quite a narcissist. The culture in the particular store I was employed were not progressive and quite aggressive.
Pros
Location
Cons
no breaks, 6 days work week, no input, sales persons non degrees, human resource person also doubled as store manager when manager was absent.

The location in braselton is not an equal oppurtunity
Recieving materiel handler (Former Employee) –  Braselton, GAApril 13, 2018
The manager of overnight flat out told me he wont ever hire a caucasian person because we "have it to easy" then the other manager made me feel as if i wasnt allowed to even want to work there. They lie to you an treat you like your garbage an disposable. I would never recommend working here or even interviewing here unless you enjoy being disrespected an belittled.
Pros
A lot of hours.
Cons
Offensive management, awful time management, bad coworkers, short breaks, no work/life balance

Material Handler (Former Employee) –  South Chesterfield, VAFebruary 22, 2018
The pay was good however this is a terrible company to work for. The management believes in favoritism. You are made to bust your butt and then go help slackers finish their work. They sell that high priced furniture and most of it isn't even real wood; just super hard plastic
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
poor management

Lots of down time
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLJanuary 21, 2018
Every year they cut the pay. You're given quotas and written up if you don't reach it. They pay you 12 an hour and load the floor with so many people you're waiting 3 or 4 hours between ups. You may get to ups a day and they are both "just looking", so it's impossible to sell enough to make more than the 12 an hour. They load the floor with sales assoc. Because it's cheaper to pay you 12/hr than to have a decent amount and allow everyone to make money. The associates there are rude and try and get you to quit just so that they have the less people to have to wait behind to get another up. Management sells you the dream that oh you'll be rich in a year but it's untrue. The company screws you over every chance they get as do the employees.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons

Long standing company with "boys club".
Designer (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYDecember 1, 2017
Typical day of work had me pulled in a million directions because the market manager excelled at micro managing. My staff would exceed sales and objectives and we're constantly berated by management. Be expected to love work because you will live there. All work, all day for every holiday, and the days before and after. Employees were miserable due to exhaustion. The exception was for market manager, when he decided to show up, he would be in jeans, not shaved for days.
Management enjoys bickering between sales staff, and does nothing to interject as long as he's making money.
I enjoyed the design aspect and working with staff. Havertys has such a good reputation however some "long term" managers need to go. They lucked into that position 30 years ago, and have the invincible attitude. Until the company replaces seasoned "boys club" management, I would not suggest working for Havertys.
Pros
Design work
Cons
Low wages, terrible expensive benefits

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaNovember 24, 2017
Could be a better place to work if New management was brought in or if the current management there knew what they were doing. They should try listening to delivery teams ideas and actually implement some of them.
Pros
Moving all day
Cons
Management, pay, not enough employees
