Great Colleagues and Company
member of staff (Former Employee) –  Manchester11 July 2019
Lovely members of staff. Overall a great job if you're looking for a permanent one. Salary is great and everyone is typically on the same page/treated the same. I learned how to work along side a team and the basics in an office which has helped in the long run. Friendly environment. Had the chance to meet some great people.

Even though I enjoyed working at the time I spent at this company this was very short lived, 3months probation reduced to 6 weeks.
Upholsterer (Former Employee) –  Blackburn, Lancashire13 April 2019
Overall this company if managed properly would be a lovely place to work but unfortunately my experience working for forest sofa company, (Blackburn) site, I worked really hard to meet their demands, but when after 6 weeks out of a12weeks agreement, probation period I was told I wasn't satisfactory for this position in their company, even though very little help and guidance does go along way as the company States this in their company policy, I'm afraid this never was put into practice at any given time, don't work for this company, If you do so you will need to work very hard even though this is piece work after you make it through the 3months probation period, ex employee.

Trade Sales Advisor / Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester25 March 2019
Job was changed every month and no clear guidelines or training! There's character building and then there's this!

No structure in the way they work. Not clear and job wasnt as advertised

Family Feeling
Sales and Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  Manchester11 January 2019
Busy days made easier by a feeling that you are a part of a family and working with your friends. Hard part of the job is small teams means often left overworked, pay/bonus isn't the best despite hard work, punctuality. fun place to work can have a laugh and can always ask for help if struggling with work load
