What Atlantic Bedding And Furniture Sales Team Members Say:

 

After getting my degree at UNCW, I was looking for career opportunities and started selling mattresses at a retail store here in town. Across the street was a place called Atlantic Bedding and Furniture and while checking them out as competition I started talking with the owners of the store. I liked the business model so much that I applied for a job and a week later I was in Charleston for ‘Furniture U’. As soon as I met the Head of the company and the others at HQ in Charleston, I knew that it was a great career opportunity. This company gives you the freedom to be yourself and have fun with what you do, and everybody truly does act as a family. I became the sales manager at the AB&F Wilmington location and look forward to being a store owner someday in the near future. If you are looking for a career that you can truly enjoy and are motivated to succeed, then Atlantic is perfect for you!

Sales Manager, AB&F Wilmington, NC

After graduating college I really had no idea what I was going to do, the opportunities were limited and I wanted a solid income.  I was turned on to Atlantic Bedding and Furniture by a friend and I started in January 2010. I worked hard and made great money very quickly, the sky was and still is the limit!  In just over a year with the AB&F team I was given the opportunity to relocate to a new store as the Operating Manager with the plans to open my own location in a city of my choice someday.  I have, and will continue to, recommend Atlantic Bedding to anyone looking for an exciting career.

I started my career in real estate and found myself in a jam when the market crashed. I was presented with an opportunity to start work with Atlantic Bedding and Furniture. The owner of AB&F Nashville was a good friend and introduced me to the owner of the Charleston, SC location. I was given a job, and even more importantly, a chance to succeed. I have been here for 6 months now and it gets better every day. My goal is to be a store owner within 2 years and the people here are all giving me the knowledge and help needed to get there.

I’ve had over 30 years experience in marketing and sales, and was in commercial real estate before joining the Atlantic Bedding and Furniture team.  I found AB&F through a friend in March of 2011 and it has really turned into a great opportunity for me.  I quickly became one of the top sales team members in the Myrtle Beach, SC location.  The best part is this job has given me the ability to have fun, be creative and express my own brand of sales and marketing.  It has given me a freedom similar to owning my own company without the hassle of actually owning your own business.  I love the people I work with and can’t say enough how great it is to be a part of the AB&F team.

Sales Leader, AB&F Myrtle Beach, SC
I have an eclectic working background. I’ve worked in customer service, ran trucks for 15 years, and was a mover for a while as well. I started in August 2011 doing deliveries out of our Richmond, VA location.  I started doing sales soon after starting and I love the flexibility this job gives me.  I can make the income I need and still have time to spend with my family.  The job is fun and every day is unique, but the most exciting thing is how quickly AB&F is growing!
