Furniture Sales Associate
Anyone can go to Target or IKEA, pick a boxed table off a warehouse shelf, take it home, and hope for the best on self-assembly. But when people are starting to decorate their homes for the first time or want to commit to an aesthetic that will define their living space for years, they'll want assurance and someone professional to help. People who work in furniture specialty stores need to have a passion for the look of a room and understand what shapes, sizes and textures meet a customer's needs. The required elements of this job include fast-paced, friendly customer service, a knowledge of brands and builds, and (of course) a keen ability to sell.
