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

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

Terrible Experience
Associate (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaNovember 21, 2017
Management gave unrealistic expectations as far as customer traffic, and income. A lot of training when associates aren’t the issue. Corporate does not help as far as providing the resources for associates to sell at a steady pace. Commission percentage is garbage.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Pay, customers, expensive merchadise in a lower income market

Terrible leadership, micromanagers, put more trust in IBM than their own employees.
Senior Systems Engineer (Manager) (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 1, 2016
Title says it all. Very incompetent upper management. Micromanagers. CIO gets involved with everything, including low level troubleshooting. Treats employees very poorly. Passive-aggressive. Old technology that nobody knows how to support. Always behind the curve.
