Culture and Values
Family owned business built on values that has become more corporate minded and has lost sight of valuing the people who have made them successful. Overall the product is well made but extremely over priced. They do have an amazing training program and provide their salespeople with state of the art technology and software. They are one of the few companies to compensate on written sales versus delivered. Unfortunately they had too many salespeople for the amount of traffic the store brought in which made it difficult for half the staff to meet their goals. Split sales were encouraged causing an unhealthy work environment among the salespeople. I would say the average salesperson makes maybe $35,000 yearly. Management was often in their office and came off unapproachable. You work every Saturday/Sunday and most holidays; making it difficult to have a work/life balance. When corporate people visited you were encouraged and coached to on what to say.

Pros and Cons
Training and technology provided
Split commission sales, not enough traffic for the staff to make sells reachable, product expensive

Culture and Values
My time at Bassett was a rewarding experience. The Bassett stores are independly owned and the owner of my school was involved in furniture for over 50 years and the people that worked for him were treated very well. The owner of the stores ,always sent every employee a birthday card and always made sure there was a Christmas Party and a Christman bonus no matter how slow business was that year. I worked in goverment defense contractors for the first 25 years of my career, and in that atmosphere you were just a number. Harry Khon and the Kohn Corporation and the founder Harry Kohn, was the best work experience I ever had.

Pros and Cons
They were supportive and the people I worked with were a tight knit group.
There were none.
