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

Efficient but difficult management
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB27 May 2018
Amazing staff and fun work but managment has very unfair standards. Warehouse manager atleast in the Edmonton district has unfairly high standards and I was told multiple times but multiple people that alot of people get let go for being to slow.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Unfairly high standards from management

Nice place
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

Good for someone starting in the workforce
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.

Loved my fellow teammates. At the store it was like being part of a family. Communication between head office to the store levels needs to be better. Overall I enjoyed my time there.

Fun Place to work but long hours
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK26 September 2017
Hours were far to long for someone who has a family or daycare.
Management promises a promotion, but then it never seems to happen.
10-12 hour days once a month.
have to be at shift 30 minutes early for team meeting, unpaid.
Free breakfast or coffee on occasion.
Pros
Discounts
Cons
Long hours

Nice store, beautiful furniture
Customer Service Representative, I (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK15 September 2017
Typical day was dealing with the public and their needs and concerns. The Sales staff was great, very easy to get along with. With management, there seemed to be a battle for authority among the 5 of them. The store manager is on a major power trip and reminds you who she is and what she can do. The hardest part of the job was the lack of training and the best part of the job was the people we met everyday.
Pros
employee discounts
Cons
Maturity level of management

Great environment and Great people!
Assistant Manager of Sales (Former Employee) –  Stoney Creek, ON12 September 2017
Typical day consisted of general sales i.e, Customer relations, Pricing, Setup of delivery and/or pick up times, etc.
Delivery days were mostly spent taking in items from our delivery trucks, taking stock/inventory of all items, unwrapping/assembling items and moving them to the showroom floor.
Management was always friendly, understanding and willing to work with you every step of the way to ensure that your time at Ashley would be a great one.
Lots of ups and downs as is typical with any large company but the atmosphere was always happy and entertaining. Never a dull moment!
Hardest part of the job was the moving and rearranging of furniture as well as loading and unloading of customer/company vehicles, lots of heavy lifting.
Most enjoyable part was helping customers find what they are looking for at an amazing price that they can be comfortable with. Nothing like seeing the smile and glow of a satisfied customer!
Pros
Good people
Cons
Heavy lifting
