    Pros

    Potential for large bonuses if you are a shark and don't make emotional bonds with your co-workers

    Cons

    Don't make any money because other sales people are encouraged to steal your customers and crash your sales. Company says it is faith based with a focus on employees but workers are required to work up to 20 hours shifts (commission only-no hourly wage) with no exceptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

    I worked at Ashley Furniture full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to make big commission. CSR position saves you from having to do the majority of the paper work after closing sales.

    Cons

    Promotional ads every other week requires you to walk the entire showroom to change out the price tags for the "new sale", then upper management decides to have a special one day sale while none of the prices are listed on line so the customer gets confused and leaves.

    Work days that can be as long as 12hrs, and you're not allowed to sit in between customers.

    Always being pushed to do credit applications for every single person.

    Pros

    The health benefits are decent. If you can make the right contacts and work hard there is a possibility of advancement. The people in general are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Long hours are not only expected but are demanded from salaried employees. Todd Wanek's favorite quote is from Mario Andretti, to paraphrase - 'If you don't feel a little out of control, you are not going fast enough.' That sums up their management style.....they rarely have time to do things right, but always have time to do them over. And it costs them BIG bucks sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down just a little and think things through. It will save you a huge amount of money in the long run.

    Pros

    Great benefits. That is the only good thing.

    Cons

    Ever since the Phillips family sold the St. Louis and Ill. stores the new family the DSG group has ran it into the ground . Flooded sales floors, poor poor training. Raised the prices on delivery,furniture and protection program. Their mission statement: To achieve excellence as we provide products and services in a way that honors God and blesses our guests and employees. What a joke. DSG IS THE ONLY ONE BEING BLESSED BY BEING DISHONEST. Poor new computer program- pricing on the floor is confusing to guest and employees-draw. A lot of unhappy coworkers- Lots of role paying on waterfall financing (run a guest through at least 3 financing companies. That makes our guest happy. Ha ha

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better training- need more managers on the floor for sales support.
