    I enjoyed being a buyer and floor designer for Ashley Furniture Homestore.

    Buyer and Designer (Former Employee)

    ProsAshley provides support and guidance for a successful career with their company. They are innovative and provide a product that is easy to sell and profit with. They make great decisions which keep them ahead of the industry in design, and cost, and employee support.

    ConsI do not have anything negative to say.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Non commission sales representative part time

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Draper, UT

    ProsLots of exercise walking around the large building.

    ConsLow wages, limited breaks, part time only, not benefits, and high turnover position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees a fair wage and provide some benefits so your employees don't need to work 2 jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    All hype and promises.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people on the sales staff.

    ConsAll the great people you bond with will leave one by one as they see the truth is not what was hyped up in training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth

    Non Commissioned High Pressure Sales Job

    Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    Draper, UT

    ProsThe co workers were great, Saturday Lunches, great for first time sales experiences

    ConsVery low wage. $9 an hour for being pressured to sell furniture, warranties, add-ons, etc. Unattainable goals= no bonuses. Usually $100k short of the goal because of returns and exchanges. Management getting mad at associates for talking to other employees, even when business is slow.
    Management treats all associates like children.
    We have a co-worker who is ON commission and usually tries to take all the sales.
    On Saturdays we only get a few minute break even if you work 9am-8pm just to eat lunch.
    Can't take off on holidays and saturdays.
    No flexible scheduling
    Low raises.
    Slow pace, Saturdays are the only days when it is fairly busy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMost of the managers should be terminated. One of our managers is not a "people person". Very grumpy, talks like he is always rude no matter what the conversation is. Tells me when i need help, "It is not hard to understand, why do I have to keep telling you this." Pay your employees better! Give fair hour lunches, especially to the people who works all day. Treat your sales associate with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The location I was in made it very difficult to make any money.

    Customer Specialist (Former Employee)
    Edwardsville, IL

    ProsMeeting new people on a day-to-day basis.

    ConsPushing people to sit down with them and talk about their entire room in order to find other things you can possibly sell to them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCulture was terrible, and it doesn't help to continuously keep the entire staff on edge about being fired. Maybe try to loosen the grip a little and let people work in their own ways.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very poor upper management

    Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
    Wichita Falls, TX

    ProsGood place to learn the basics of selling. They offer benefits such as health insurance, dental and vision. Overall, an enjoyable work environment.

    ConsConstantly have to monitor your deliveries to ensure that you are being compensated correctly. Upper management is constantly adding policies that allow them to take your sales and not pay your commission. Weekly last-minute schedule changes. Bonuses frequently not payed out with little or no explanation. They charge you for "supplies" even after you have signed documents stating that you are no longer using said supplies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry motivating through incentives rather than punishment. Value your sales staff, and stop treating them like a commodity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Visual Merchandiser

    Visual Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Murfreesboro, TN

    ProsMove at your own pace, but had to be fast paced in order to get things done. No selling, didn't have to be there for the big events.

    ConsThe owners at the time were terrible. The visual staff was spread to thin. Too much to do and not enough time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overwhelmed and under paid

    Visual Display Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsYou get a chance to express your creativity, and work with like minded talented people.They provide insurance and offer quarterly training to help with keeping you inspired.

    ConsYou will never hear any praise for a job well done. Expect to put in over time to accomodate a last minute shippment of furniture or product, or be sent to other locations far from home to assist. Standards are always changing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the people that take self pride in doing their job.Hire more than one Visual and one warehouseman to accomplish what needs to be done instead of rushing things and doing it wrong.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
