DFS Furniture Stores Employee Review
Not a good place to work
If you like been over worked and under payed this is the place for you worked here for 3 years and there is more bosses that haven’t a clue how to manage. Come Christmas you will be expected to work un real hours and get a thank you very much as a bonus for your trouble.left it for a better job and when I handed in my notice was asked to stay but wouldn’t get a pay rise these clowns live in a dream world

PEEK-A-BOO! Where do I start. Firstly they promise you the sun moon and stars in the interview. Great pay, help from management when needed, no pressure etc etc...but when you actually start the job you realise that it's all a lie!! They pay is just above average but for the work you do it's no where near enough. I worked in the warehouse and no body cares for you. You tell the management any problems you have and they either dont care or think your lying about it. They only care about themselves and their figures. Even when we had got a good thing going, they go and change the shift managers which just has the warehouse upside down! The new management have no idea what's going on or what to do when something does go wrong. You get TOLD your doing overtime, no asking. They talk health and safety but dont actually care too much. Yeah they give you the sheets to read and sign but they dont actually let you read, they just say Sign it and you will be grand!!!!! When they do tell you to do something and you dont agree with it, your brought up to the office and giving an improvement notice which is absolutely crazy!! DO NOT APPLY FOR A JOB IN DFS. As mad as this sounds you really are better off being unemployed than working there!!
Long hours. Bad management. No care for employees
You need to be hungry for the sale to work here. My manager was ruthless and would turn on you for missing target even if you’d consistently delivered over months and months. There was constant anxiety in store and turnover was very high as a result. I like dealing with people and have a genuine interest in interior design but I felt like I was working in a used car sales shop in how I was expected get the sales in. Awful awful leadership. Really terrible company with a culture of bullying and daily passive aggressive comments and digs to make you understand who had the power in the company. Honestly, really awful people
Staff discount, some colleagues were fun to work with
Managers: duplicitous and fickle and will throw you under a bus in a heartbeat.
