Suggestions for improvement

  • the "up" system that they use to keep tract of customers coming into the store is old and dated and should be updated with a computer program. They need more computers for each salesman to use when they are helping their customers, there's not enough. They need more training of the different furniture lines we carry and all their options. They could bring vendors in for specialized training.

What I like about the company

I sold a big furniture order with multiple vendors, and my manager spent a lot of time with me to make sure everything was ordered correctly and he helped me explain all the custom options were written out correctly. He then went over each item and it's full purpose after the customer left.

What I dislike about the company

sometimes my manager can be too easy going and he lets the sales people who have been there much longer than me help more customers and take additional sales. He also lets them leave early & xome in later.

Company Culture

There is no fairness or trust it is a huge party of be against one another

Support from management

No help from management

Teamwork

Everyone is out to get fellow employees sales when theybdid no work for it

Freedom to work independently

No, it is favoritism and who does the least work who gets the sales from other emploees and if your not there and customer comes in. U lost that sale alltogether andbwont find out until they call asking for help from you even tho they purchase threw another employeebthat tjey said they would enter it under you.

Internal Communication

None whatsoever! Between the store emplyees to manager to outsidebthe store. No one backs up the other n no one tells the other what is going on

Gender Equality

All saMe work for no recognition gentleman seem to come and go real fast however

Attitude towards older colleagues

No! No no no no no! They are the "desk jockies". Evsn though you r there to sell they make you do the bottom of the barrel work. Paper work, bill paying, greet customers and gst them a younger colleagues to assit them. They treat it as cant teach old dogs new tricks.

Career Development

No one will help you move you move up in the company

Overall compensation for your work

No. Paid cheap because of commision but commision rates r to hard to reach to make Ny more money when they claim bankruptcy and no one would come into the store. And have to pay back what you dont reach in sales to the company

Office / Work Environment

Smoking in stock rooms, no one cleaning up after them selves in the break room, knats everywhere flyingaround, dust/mold in vents

Environmental Friendliness

Aimed bankruptcy and public will not buy product when they hear that word

Work-Life Balance

No set schedule changes from day to night without warnings

Company Image

No, all i heard was i need aNother job.

Job Security

Yes, when they announced bankruptcy everyone was in trouble.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, elevators and escalators

Workplace Safety

No, smoking in stock room, mold in vents and trash being left for weeks so bugs appear

Challenging Work

Nope, there is no thank you, great job, etc. Just a next task of nothing important

Inclusive / Diverse

No, not one bit, lack of communication you will just be a pawn on the board w. O achieving anything

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get better management from store level up and readdress pays

What I like about the company

Nothing

What I dislike about the company

Everything, no sense of humor or help from anyone
