Overall Reviews at Conn's Home Plus
Most enjoyable part of my job
The inconsistency is a blessing and a curse here. Nothing stays the same, but this has taught me how to adjust very quickly and also I’ve been able to learn quite a few tasks other than my job description which may help me moving forward.

typical cycle counting every single day.
the warehouse had every single product conns sells from electronics to bedroom furniture tvs washers dryers computers dish washers computers honestly the possibilities of what we didn't hold or have in stock was endless.
Easy to advance if you want, but the management is trash
I was able to get promoted in the company but I didn't have enough support in order to do the job I needed to do, managerial support was trash they encourage a highly competitive and cutthroat work environment. Those that steal customers from other people got rewarded, and the manager encouraged us to lie and do whatever it took to get money from people's pockets. They actually have full-on training sessions to teach you how to not say certain important key details (like interest rates) to customers so they don't choose not to buy. Everybody that comes into the doors is to be considered as a dollar sign and not as a person. When you become a specialist or any kind of manager position your pay stays the same as when you entered basically and you get an incentive saying that at the end of the month if your department in the whole store is doing good you get a bonus. But if your department is doing well and the store sales aren't you don't get anything.
ProsAbility to get promoted in the company
ConsOnly store managers get good pay, department managers only get paid if the store is doing well, promises not to be a cutthroat sales environment but it is
Awesome place to work. You work with a team of sales associates that become like family. You get help all across the floor. From cashiering to quacking inventory even to close the customer. Lots of incentives and bonuses. Overall outstanding place to work
Worst decision Ive ever made save youre time and keep looking
I worked at the Conns in Denton and let me tell you KEEP LOOKING! Do not waste your time with this conpany! They make you huge promises that they cant keep but somehow its your fault. They promise you commission paychecks around $2000 but with how the economy is going you will definitely get hourly checks that are around $800. When I tried to talk to my manager about my low paychecks she suggested I stay all day and make more phone calls. We had no one to call and if they had it their way you would be there everyday open to close. Management is horrible the general manager plays favorites and the assistant manager Alex has no idea about what hes doing and will constantly badger you. All in all this job is not worth the hassle.
ProsOne hour lunches
ConsHorrible management, not enought money, its always somehow your fault for not making your qoutes and they play favorites
BBad management Managers do not know how to run the business and will never have a good job attitudeThis company has never been in anything organized customers are very and will never step down without getting a new unit service calls are more than 40 days behind so when you get home do at home things are not good
Location & steady work
The good Great products great customer service friendly atmosphere 40 hours a week convenient location close to 410 they do have the seating 6 feet away. the bad the restrooms are always very dirty and they never have paper towels the breakrooms are very small no privacy no cafeteria and conns doesn't give raises and hard to transfer to other departments
ProsSteady work great schedules
ConsOnly one 15 minute break per 8 hour shift

Good Job if you don't have a family
Typical day is coming in making 30 phone calls. Then waiting for customers to come in. Some managers micro manage some are relaxive. The hardest part about the job is working on holidays.
Worst place to work
this is the worst place to work. You have no life at all, They don't pay you what your worth. They don't care about anything but Conn's Home Plus. All they do is use you and that's it.
Was productive and fun enviorment, but also a lot of hard work.
Hardest Part of the job was having to call customer's and explain to them why they wouldn't be receiving their delivery that day(i.e merchandise came in damaged that morning, proper pieces weren't ordered, per sales person, or just couldn't reach customer the night before no matter how many times we tried calling them to confirm delivery for the next day, or item was out of stock).
