I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ashley Furniture.
Interview Details – Did not seem very organized. Could tell it the interview format had been repeated many times and was very standard. Focused on technical questions but only probed deep enough to see if you know the basics. Seemed hurried. Be quick on your feet with answers and you will do fine. The basis of hiring is mostly on how they like you personally. Oddly enough, educational credentials seem to be valued more than applied knowledge.
Interview Question – They asked specifically what my income has been but would not disclose even the range of pay offered. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Negotiation was muddled. I asked for relocation assistance and they said they would get back to me. After following up several times, they simply did not respond and never addressed the question after I started work.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online - interviewed at Ashley Furniture in December 2012.
Interview Details –
The worst experience ever!
I applied on-line for the job. An outside recruiter called me and after a brief conversation, she told me to wait for the next step, a call from the Ashley NJ recruiter. She told me to be available at 2PM for a call but it never came. I was told the next day to again wit for a call from the interviewer. Again no call. Third time asked to be available for a call. Again no call at the designated time. I did get the call one hour later but missed it because I was on another call. A voicemail was left by the recruiter to call her back. I spent the next two hours trying to get hold of this person. We had our interview and I was told that the position pays $12 per hour, not the $15 that the outside recruiter stated. If I accepted the position then I would have to drive over an hour to meet with a general manager for an in-person interview, and I was told to wait for his call. 4 days and no call.
These people waste your time! Is this the type of management one can expect if hired?
Interview Question –
none...no good questions. Sophomoric
Still waiting for the second interview...I was told I would be perfect for the job by the recruiter! Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Ashley Furniture in November 2012.
Interview Details – First interview was by phone with in house recruiter. I then received a postcard letter stating that I did meet requirements for the next step. Later that day I recieved an email offering me another interview for the security position. The interview with the security supervisor lasted less than 5 minutes with 2 questions and a "you're hired."
Interview Question – No difficult questions. Supervisors work off a generic script with situational based questions. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Flat rate of pay for position is based upon shift differential increments.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ashley Furniture in October 2012.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume and cover letter in response to a Craigslist ad. A regional manager was quick to contact me for a brief phone interview, then set me up an interview at one of the nearby locations. I attended the interview with several other candidates; we were given two timed tests to complete, ostensibly one personality test and one IQ test. I was then brought in for a second interview, wherein I sat down on a floor model couch and spoke with the store manager and regional manager. This interview was fairly relaxed and mostly focused on sales techniques. Both interviewers were personable. The final stage of the process was a drug test.
Interview Question – I don't recall any particularly difficult or unusual questions. They did ask what was the most difficult aspect of my last sales job. View Answer
Reason for Declining – I made a decision to relocate and was therefore unable to pursue this particular opportunity.
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Ashley Furniture.
Interview Details – You can submit your resume online or fill out an application in the store. The most important thing they are looking for is availability on evenings, weekends (EVERY Saturday and Sunday), and holidays. If you are not available weekends they will not even look at your resume/application. Sales experience is a definite plus and will likely guarantee you an interview if they are hiring. I was scheduled an interview the same week I applied. Your initial interview is with both the General Manager and the Assistant General Manager. It will last about an hour and they mostly want to know more about you and your experiences and your attitudes toward working hard and being able to work with people. They don't ask a lot of hard questions such as, "Tell me about a time when..." or "How would you handle this situation if..", rather it is more of a conversational interview. They are very open and honest about what you are getting into as an employee for them and they encourage questions. If they like you in your first interview, they will invite you back in for a 2nd interview, which is really the "job offer". At this 2nd "interview" they will tell you your exact pay, expectations, hours required, uniform, benefits, etc etc. They tell you the rules of your position and what they expect out of you, and this is also when you fill out all of your new hire paperwork. It takes about an hour and a half and it is somewhat informal (you are already hired, they just wanna make sure you really want to work there after knowing everything that is expected from you).
Interview Question – Honestly cannot think of one difficult or unexpected question. It was all very conversational questions getting to know you. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There isn't any negotiated, really. You receive an offer later that explains to you the hours expected from you and your commission rate, along with your "training" period which you receive an hourly rate for, if that amount is less than your commission earned.
