Suggestions for improvement

  • Appreciate the sales associates more because no one gets paid until furniture is sold. Quit taking money out of our pockets by increasing goals year after year. It has to stop sometime. This is how the corporate officers get their huge salaries by sticking it to the salespeople.

What I like about the company

Family owned and operated and now publicly traded on the NYSE

What I dislike about the company

As a straight commission salesperson, corporate continuously keeps raising the quotas to ensure it is harder and harder to make a good living.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Corporate needs to care more about employees ability to earn and reduce turnover and increase employee satisfaction and loyalty. When the CEO gets a $1 MILLION annual bonus and the sales people are struggling to make a living, it creates a very negative atmosphere. Corporate makes a lot of promises that they have no intention of keeping and tells new employees that they can make a lot of money when it is not true. Few do and those work a LOT of hours.

What I like about the company

I am a interior designer and they have a lot of custom furniture options, more all the time. Their computer system is really well designed, user friendly, cutting edge, programs to help customers visualize their rooms.

What I dislike about the company

They over hire - too many sales people on the floor, so it is hard to make a living and creates a hostile environment. If too many sales people start bonusing, the corporate office forces the store manager to hire more to keep the commission % at the lowest tier. Keeps turnover high because of low earnings. Training programs are TERRIBLE. New sales people coming onto the floor of the store are full of questions and don't know the product lines.
