Good but lifts
They mention lifts but not how often, your sometimes lifting 6-7 sofas every 2 days to change up the range or stock. Makes you sweaty when selling which is uncomfortable

Nope.
Working here was a terrible experience. Vast majority of the staff are the worst and most miserable people you’ll ever meet, the culture is toxic, management don’t care. Don’t work here.

Challenging but rewarding
Like most sales jobs this is a competitive commission based job and very long hours. Good training which is structured . Quite a bit of physical work involved .

Not great
Angry screaming customers all day long swearing at you. Other staff were friendly enough but having to speak to the customers was awful and depressing.

No life no problem!
The store I work in the managers was very good and understanding, took advice a suggestions on board and actively work on them as a team. A lot of heavy lifting as you will be moving A-LOT of furniture around all the time as they change there hotspots every 2 weeks and constant new sets of sofas coming in due to cancelled orders, and if you live close be prepared to work every late as everyone uses excuses to leave early and avoid the late shifts.Working every weekend and every bank holiday with no breaks unless you demand to take it as no one will tell you take it not even managers. Area managers also come into the stores on a regular basis walk round for 30 mins and get you to move everything round just to tell you next time that it’s all in the wrong place next visit which will be a week later!. Very pushy sales approach and targets are far too high, but if your looking at starting a new career in sales good only for experience not a long term job. If your not expecting to stay for longer than 12 months don’t take the guaranteed commission as you will have to pay it all back and my advice to anyone is reject it anyway as it gives you a false hope of how much you should be earning.Holidays are first come first serve and the managers get first choice so good luck getting anytime off as everyone wants the same holidays and the store managers don’t get say in the holiday Rotas as it’s passed to area managers who rarely say yes unless there is absolutely no one off on those days in the whole company so if you want a weekend off and someone in wales is off already and you work in England it’s a no!

Interview questions

Can you, will you and most of all can you be flexible with your working hours. (will you work an extra 10 hours a week for nothing) that's how the last one should be put across but that would mean being honest. Honesty is not one of this companies strong points

It was very informal. They were looking at replacing someone and wanted to take on and train up another mug (me) to eventually sack him.
