Sales (Former Employee) – Tri-Cities, TN – November 5, 2018
There is back-stabbing when you work in sales, so you have to watch your co-workers, the worst part of the job is usually with the store managers. They come and go often, sometimes you get a good one and other times a bad one. We all had daily job duties besides the "selling part", some of the co-workers rarely did their part. Most managers don't care about their stores and when that happens you see it in the sales staff as well, and that makes for poor customer service and lack of communication.
Lots of opportunity if searching for a retail environment that rewards those that achieve desired results.
DEALER ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Various – August 12, 2018
Solid company that has been around for over 100 years. There are lots of opportunities within the company for those that wish to join a retail team that is focused on driving top line sales and rewarding those that achieve the results.

No consistent off days. The owners & managers are related at the stores in the local areas. While the male owner is nice & polite, his wife is rude & doesn’t care about family values or off days. They do not work with your schedules for home life. If you have an active child(ren) in school or athletics this is not the place for you.
Down time & 1 hour lunch
Terrible management, Not organized, No time for home life, Work weekends, Co-workers aren’t helpful, Drama filled work force
Badcock was a great company to work for. They have a program to help young professionals to develop not only at Badcock but in the corporate world. You get hands on experience and you learn everything you need to know to make you a better professional.
A typical day was unloading 25-30 trucks a day. I learned how to operate forklifts and crown machines. Management was always on the floor helping even if you didn't need them to. The hardest part of the job was getting used to heights. The most enjoyable part of the job was being alone while operating the crown machines to put away merchandise.
I loved working with the outside stores and management. This is a place that made you feel important no matter what your job. It was a team effort from everyone to for the accomplishment this company achieves.

While the pay is not horrible, there is no room for advancement unless you are willing to relocate anywhere within the southern states. Stores can be sold without notice, along with the employees that occupy them. You are required to work EVERY Saturday and EVERY holiday, but Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter. This company prides itself on being a family company, but they have no family values when it comes to the retail workers. Long hours and no time off with family. Pay is acceptable if you meet your sales goals, if not you will not be able to survive. Run if you have the chance!!!
Downtime, compensation for sales
No room for advancement, no family time, managers tend to be unknowledgable

I spent 37 years of my work career at Badcock Corporation. Like all companies, it has strength and weakness but I enjoyed my service to the company. You are able to build relationships and the Corporation staff are all customer service focused.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Columbia, TN – April 28, 2017
Loved the job at first, adored my coworkers! Corporate had no respect for any of us. I was there five and a half years and was given no appreciation from upper management. I liked all my (5) managers, but one coworker was allowed to cause unnecessary drama by lying about everyone and everything. We never even received a Christmas bonus. I do not recommend this company to anyone!
This company is not good. If you do more than others then they expect it out of you all the time with no chance of moving up. I was there for 2 years and I wouldn't wish any of that on anyone. Sales people do not do anything but complain about how hard their job is. I liked the manager. But co workers and people in upper management didn't care about moving up especially when they told you they would.

She left her husband and children to be witht the store manager who then gave her a job. This is fratilization first of all. She selld returns as new and buys the new ones for herself at mark down priced.This is also consumer fraud to sell an used mattress as new. She also forged signatures and is a compulsive liar. Worse boss evveeerrr
Cashier (Former Employee) – Manchester, GA – October 4, 2016
I worked for this company for over a year and it was not what was expected. Signed up to do one job and ended up doing multiple jobs not described in job description and did not receive any additional compensation for it. They are money driven and has lost its focus which is its employees and customers. Was accused of multiple accusations continuously to be found not at fault . Owners are doing what they want in the stores and there is no loyalty between mangers and supervisors not to add no support you are on your own. very disappointed in the professionalism.
