    Interview

    I was called by a Manager from a different location than the one I applied for and we set up an interview. The Manager changed my Interview date due to Upper Management coming that day and he wanted to focus on them. When I got there on the new day, he had forgotten I was coming.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ashley Furniture (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Warehouse Workers Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ashley Furniture (Arcadia, WI) in December 2011.

    Interview

    They tend to hold monthly to bimonthly job fairs scattered across the counties surrounding Arcadia and in Arcadia. On the job fair days, it's more convenient to file an online application in advance. And be prepared to answer questions about your jobs of history that focus on behavrioral and open end based questions. Example questions: "Tell us about a time when..." is a behavioral question and also open end because interviewer rarely targeted a specific job on record. They will assess your safety commitment, willingness to work overtime, what you liked most about a job, lease liked about a job, why did you leave last employer, a time when you handled a coworker under stress, and what would a former employer or workers on crew say about your overall job performance. Be prepared for those questions especially if you have blemishes being put on spot with a hard question unprepared for can leave you in a crickets momment, a flag banner white brilliantly flapping in imaginary breeze overhead, lol. Good luck ladies and gentlemen. Remember, sell yourself and in answering a question give examples, and make it abundantly clear that you are worth something beyond the person before and after you. Oh and get there early as possible, I got a bad attitude interviewer after lunch time and if you are like me sitting down with someone who criticizes you over factual statements or interjects blattant opinions that should not be used hold that reactive speaking. I did hold mine, so you can too. Play it cool and get that job. Send a thank you note if you aren't hired on a job fair day to HR and if possible call em back. Afterall, you have to do something in todays job market that makes you standout. Thank them for their time, keep it short 1-2 lines that's it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Ashley Furniture (Egg Harbor Township, NJ) in June 2011.

    Interview

    There was a 12 minute timed skills and IQ test, consisting of 40 questions, and without the use of calculators or scrap paper. There were reasoning, metaphors, number sequencing, conversions, analogies, and synonyms/antonyms. The staff were rude and loud; but maybe it was just this location that acts this way.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Ashley Furniture (Sugar Land, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Job fair interview with store manager. He liked me and said he would set up a 2nd interview with a regional manager. I waited 2 weeks and several calls before I got an interview. Was given some lame story about the regional manager not receiving his email. Interviewed on a Sunday with regional manager. He was 25 minutes late for the interview, then needed 20 more minutes to prepare for it. he liked my interview and told me I would hear something within 3 days. he even gave me his business card and told me to call him if I hadn't heard anything in 3 days. I called on day 4, day 5 and day 6. Got his voice mail. he has NOT returned my calls. now it has been almost 4 weeks since I applied. Was told I would hear something either way. Not good to leave someone hanging. VERY unprofessional and down right RUDE.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Ashley Furniture (New Braunfels, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online, received call to take assesment and interview with director of call center. Assesment is time consuming over an hour. Interview was very basic but did ask some unusual questions. Management in office is more like high schoolers - everyone has a group and may not include everyone. They strive to make office work fun but if we have too much fun than we have to stop.

    Did negotiate salary due to first offer was too low for the traveling I would do to and from office.
