    I have been working at Leon's Furniture part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to basically write your own pay check. What you put into the job is what you get out of it. Are you willing to be honest with customers and work hard, not listen to your pocket but theirs.. it is we worth it

    Not giving it a chance and expecting to get rich the same week. Expecting to be paid for all sales even the ones that have yet to be delivered

    Advice to Management

    Also person training time to do the job uninterrupted . Do not book for training and sales floor at the same time
