A great place to work and really show your talents
Merchandising Manager (Current Employee), Red Deer, AB – March 6, 2014
A typical day at work is receiving floor product in the morning and then taking the product to the floor and decorating/ merchandising the product in a way that customers will be attracted to and purchase.
Office Manager (Former Employee), Corbin, KY – July 1, 2014
As the office manager my days were very busy filled with orders, inventory, customer service, finacial applications, delivery setup and occasional sales if all salespersons were busy. I enjoyed the vast variety of my responsibility at Ashley Furniture.
Cons: working weekends, late hours, working different holidays
I have came along way from were I was before I started working at Ashley furniture. I have learned how to handle tough situations and learned how to handle things in a way to help calm the customer down and show them I am here to listen. also ways to help any way I possibly can with their situation. I have made a lot of friends with this company but – more... there have been issues with a few people. Still are haven some but I am not the person to complain. I respect my work place and put a smile on my face everyday. I treat others the way I want to be treated. – less
Design Team Member (Former Employee), Tacoma, WA – June 9, 2014
This is a place that will hire anyone. Most people don't make a lot of money because the job is more a mental game. There is opportunity to make a really decent wage. The management is horrible. The turnover is ridiculous. But its an alright job for the guy who needs one.
CSR Representative (Current Employee), Savannah, GA – June 1, 2014
Pros: one weekend a month off
Cons: 100 mile a day commute.
In a typical day at Ashley Furniture I take approximately 25 calls from customers, other stores and from corporate. I run credit applications, take payments and up date customer accounts. My favorite part of this job is the customer interaction. My least favorite part of this job is the commute.
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee), Macon, GA – May 29, 2014
A typical day at Ashley Furniture Homestore is very professional. The co-workers and the work environment is very family oriented. Also, you do not have a chance to grow or expand. The position you are hired for will be the position you will stay at for a very long time. The most enjoyable part of the job will be the team members, they're very nice. – more... Benefits are not good at all. – less
Show Room Mover (Former Employee), Greenville, SC – May 15, 2014
I was here for a total of 6 weeks. Within this time my Supervisor had put in her resignation. 9 Sales Reps quit, and 3 show room movers from other stores quit. At first I thought I just came in at a time where people were moving on to bigger and better things. After about 2 weeks I thought it might be safe to keep applying for jobs that could boost – more... my resume in Computer Science since after all that is what I'm going to school for. The compensation for the work I did was below what it should have been, and the quality of their product was horrible. If you are looking for something to hold you over till you find something better then I say go for it. Otherwise please don't make this a career. – less
Service Team Lead (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – May 5, 2014
Worked for this company for over six years. This company offers little room for growth & very little training in the customer care division. Very poor management, little training offered, no accountability & damaged furniture is at an all time high. I loved the people I was able to work with, but it became a revolving door. There distribution center – more... was VERY disorganized, I believe they have gone through three warehouse managers within three years. – less
Advertised Sales (Former Employee), Danville, VA – April 25, 2014
Pros: knowledge that may help in furture individual purchases
Cons: late hours
For the period of my employment the job was typically slower traffic but made for opportune time to advertise. I learned about the various products the company had to offer and the details of how it was made. The management team was extremely understanding and easy to get along with. My team members became a part of my everyday life which helped on – more... light traffic days. The hardest part of my job would be the closing of a sale due to wait time on product arrival. Being able to feel comfortable in my work environment was the most enjoyable part of working for this company. – less
Customer Service (Former Employee), MANCHESTER, CT – April 21, 2014
This place is so dis organized. If you need a filler job then fine but this is not the place to start a career. I have worked for another large furniture retailer and this place should be shut down. They mistreat there employees. The don,t care about your personal life. Pay, we wont even talk about. The summary says it all - STAY AWAY, FAR AWAY!
I worked with a very enjoyable sales team as well office staff and warehouse personnel. I learned that I may be better suited in a more structured work environment. The "draw" payment system was probably the worst part, because management hassled you to stay busy, even if the store was empty, when there was not even enough customers coming through the – more... doors to make a decent living. Also, you got penalized (i.e. suspension) for not selling the furniture warranty, which was an additional fee, to customers who specifically turned it down. The only plus side to working there was free lunches for the staff on occasion and the ability to take lengthy breaks when necessary. – less
Customer Care Representative (Current Employee), Saltillo, MS – March 19, 2014
I have only been with company about 6 months. I love my job. I started the job through a temp service and never thought I would love my job. Unfortunately they are moving all corporate locations to Memphis and I will be out of a job soon.
