Great company, Great friends
Pick Truck Operator (Former Employee), Winnipeg MBNovember 19, 2013
Pros: great co-workers, and easy going management
Cons: dusty atmosphere
A typical day at dufresne involved moving furniture from shelves into trucks and vice-versa. I learned how to operate a pick truck and lift properly. The management was awesome and the co-workers better, as I met some great friends. The hardest part of the job was explaining to customers that certain peices of furniture would not fit in their small – more... vehicles. This was hard because it irritates people to have to pay for delivery. The most enjoyable part of the job was the physicality of the work. I enjoy keeping busy so a job where I am always doing something was awesome – less

Training could be better
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), WInnipeg, ManitobaMay 13, 2013
Pros: canadian company
Cons: no bus service
After training you are pretty much on your own. A lot is expected out of you. A fast paced environment , co-workers not that friendly and management less so. Not great bus service. Pay is average.

Better quality products to sell then average furniture store.
Sales Manager (Current Employee), Brandon, MBNovember 18, 2012
Pros: flexible hours as far as retail goes/ good income if you work hard.
Cons: working in a small market means fewer opportunities.
I've been there longer than anyone. We created a sense of pride in our work and our people. The most difficult part of the job is retention of staff as it is a difficult job market and hard to find the right people.
Had my best year yet in 2012 but my wife and family are re-locating to pursue other career choices. I love meeting people and I enjoy the – more... challenges and mentoring my staff. I've learned to deal with many types of people and have developed a lot of relationships. – less
