Over the past three years, The RoomPlace has enjoyed steady company growth. After opening their latest store location in Plainfield, Indiana in March, The RoomPlace has successfully provided 623 people with employment opportunities in sales, customer service, and warehouse distribution.

Employment opportunities in the 100-year-old family-owned business remain diverse and vast. As recently as April, The RoomPlace saw 25 employees promoted to new positions including IT. Lateral transitions are also a common occurrence at The RoomPlace. A Customer Care Associate moving into an IT specialist position is just one example of the many different career opportunities available at the furniture chain.

“It is a progressive environment allowing for growth, creativity and partnership across all departments. We pride ourselves on creating an environment that provides skills, training and opportunities for all of our employees, regardless of the level or the role. We want everyone to succeed,” said Cara Wallace, Vice President of Marketing.

With such a large number of employees, The RoomPlace continues to place an emphasis on collaborative, family-like company culture. Employee acquisition comes from many avenues—not the least of which are job fairs. These large gatherings are often held in the evenings to allow candidates the opportunity to participate after regular work hours and have yielded over 36 new employees since the beginning of 2015.

“People are what make The RoomPlace successful. We value our employees and customers and know that without them, we cannot be successful. We have a great selection and stylish furniture, but it’s the people that make it all possible,” continued Wallace.

As the Chicago-based furniture store heads into the third quarter, they expect to hire 60 new employees over the next three months and will continue to grow.
