Dont waste your time!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  London, ON28 September 2018
Management is unfair. Coworkers steal customers and management will do nothimg about it. Very hard to make sales. I would not recommend this company to anyone, no matter how desperate you are. They even make you pay 3.00 every paycheck for any food treats that are brought in the store. You have to work every weekend.
Pros
Lots of coworkers
Cons
No weekends off

what a joke
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC26 August 2018
I worked there for a few month , then decided to quit, the hardest part of the day is the morning meetings,stupid meeting everyday with silly jokes and acts from the management and you have to laugh at it otherwise you will considered not a team player, staff spy on each other, they preach that their company is very family oriented but it is far from it , everything looks clean and shiny from outside but it the other way around, most orders are on at least 4 to 6 weeks out to be delivered, i left the company and all the sales i had made went to the "House" and they did not give me my commission which was a few thousand dollars.I wouldn't recommend it at all.

Good job but poor management
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON17 August 2018
Ashley is a great company to work for but unfortunately certain location are not. The Windsor location has very poor management that knows next to nothing about the products and procedures of Ashley. Customers are great and so were the other sales people.
Pros
Customers and coworkers
Cons
Poor management

Tough line of work, incredible pressure
Sales Professional (Former Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB9 August 2018
Typical day at work can be really boring, especially if overstaffed. Quickly run out of things to do in-between customers on most week days.

Loved the team but too much pressure and very uneven salary, which is common in commission based work.

Definitely not for everyone as management likes to add pressure and are often negative.
Pros
OK benefits, great team
Cons
Tough pay, negative management

Stupid meetings Every day, which are mandatory, so management can try to pump up sales staff!
Retail Sales Specialiast (Former Employee) –  Coquitlam, BC26 July 2018
There is nothing great or good about about this job or management .The only support you get is when you are selling. And management will lie to staff about product and customer service.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
You have to laugh at bosses jokes !

Cambridge location aweful place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON1 July 2018
Location is not great=lots of lookers, management chooses favorites and helps those favorites close sales and gives them sales, environment is toxic/drama especially on the sales floor, very little training, there is no room to advance, low pay and good luck ever making what they say you will make. Dont waste your time... like any place there are good days and dont get me wrong there were some...but all in all this is not a good place to work...even the owners of this location arent good...they will walk in once in awhile and ho to the offices they never interact with you even if they walk past you, they are incredibly cheap so don't expect a Christmas party or bonus
Pros
Once your a favorite you will be ok
Cons
Management, pay/commission potential, environment

Unfairly high standards from management

Sales Professsional (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON8 May 2018
There were very good management with good benefits which they offer immediately after 3 months to all employees.
The only negative point is commission base salary for sales people which is a little hard to achieve in just 3 months.
people need more time to make some loyal customers and make money.

Enjoyable Workplace
Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB8 May 2018
Ashley Furniture is a great place to work.If you're looking for competitive wages, this is not the place for you. Communication between Head Office and Store Level definitely needs improving, but hopefully one day it'll get there. Very little stress when communication occurs. No additional work opportunities, though, so job security isn't much of an issue so long as you work well. The most enjoyable part of the job is most of the team that we currently have, as it feels like family working here.
Pros
Enjoyable environment
Cons
Noncompetitive Wages

Not effiecient
Warehouse Merchandising Handler (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 February 2018
The managers are lacking to say the least. Day by day it is chaotic, I don't honestly know why they are still in operation. I arrived there with little knowledge and was tasked to train the week after without having been trained myself.
Pros
They take suggestions seriously
Cons
Nothing gets done and the same problems persist/No Training

well managed
Selling Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 January 2018
Great culture, well organized company that stand behind their staff, lots of bonus pay that you wouldn't find at other jobs. Direct involvement from upper management and great team to work with. Be prepared to work hard as its a typical retail schedule where you need to work all weekends. Management will always help even with lunches during special events or long days.
Pros
salary good
Cons
tough schedule

5 ton truck driver (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB10 December 2017
Good for someone starting in the workforce, low pay and no benefits.
Hardest part is having items with missing parts when arriving to a customer. Overall an ok job but with minimal pay and not benefits which is not good when providing a family.

showing good but that's not real
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON1 December 2017
they will treat you well at start but every thing change after, if you see majority of their management team they even don't have a year experience in company that's big reason, you have to be not realistic to them, they are growing but they don't have culture and foundation of big company and that will decline them shortly.
