Pros: developing relationships with my clients, knowing i improved their comfort, excellent bonuses
Cons: i could not request time off for any special event, i had virtually no time to see my children or extended family.
I loved my co-workers and consider them all to be good friends. We always helped each other and had lots of fun doing it. The management was great and offered many incentives to top sellers plus each store and all-store bonuses for reaching collective goals, which we almost always did!
The only thing I did not like was the lack of time with my family. – more... With La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, as well as most other direct sales positions, one must expect that it require mandatory scheduling on every holiday, every weekend, two or three nights a week until 8pm or later and working on many days off. One could not even guarantee that a request off for a special event made very well in advance could be met. I completely understand that In this type of direct sales, one must go when the client desires you to be there and all hands must be on deck, so to speak, for every event. While a great work environment in every other way, I felt I had little life balance and now desire a position where I can see my children once in awhile! – less
