    I have been working at Ashley Furniture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ownership is very involved, knowledgeable, and personable. Most of the front line I have worked with as well as upper management are very qualified and care about their employees. Improvement and adapting to change that aids in improving the organization are emphasized shows the organization is focused on staying competitive for the long term. Company initiatives are communicated well so employees feel engaged and valued.

    Cons

    Training is very good in some departments and very limited in others. Advancement opportunities are relatively limited in many departments since company growth has been very modest for the past 5 years.

    Pros

    Good brand, organized logistics. Stores are located in great areas in several cities, responds to customer complaints regarding independent AHF owners and operators. Great branding.

    Cons

    Needs to support independent locations with improving speed of delivery of replacement parts, deliver less damaged furniture to your licensee's, send the CORRECT parts as requested to reduce customer frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement consistent practices across various Shop Ashley locations.

    Pros

    Basically none I can think of

    Cons

    Owners of company are unethical and would try not to pay there own employees if they could get away from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees how you would want to be treated. It's 2014....dictatorships type management are out. Employees want to be heard and be encouraged to give there opinions. Management distrusts it's own employees. Employee appreciation is never really felt or expressed.

    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.

    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.
