    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    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 online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Houston, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Straight to the point and fair. Plenty of opportunity to ask all the questions you need. Very nice atmosphere and professional. Not very big on dress code but I advise you dress to impress. You may not be interviewed by the person who you will be working under but will have an opportunity to met the person before you get hired. My be more than one person in the room but it will be all upper management.

    BSA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Tampa, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very smooth. First interview was a screening from HR, second was phone interview with manager, and director of my department. After the second interview I met with my manager locally for a face to face. The final interview was with our CIO which was more of a welcome to the company. HR was extremely honest throughout the process and I appreciated them keeping me constantly informed of the next steps. The phone and in person interviews were very similar and very position description concentric. It mainly consisted of discussing my work history and skills that pertained to the open position. They made for a very friendly and comfortable environment to interview in.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Ecru, MS).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a current employee to whom I forwarded my resume. I had two phone interviews, a 1:1 interview with the department manager, a panel interview with three other managers, and a 1:1 interview with the director of operations. The whole process took about 8 weeks, but the department manager kept in touch during the process. Once the offer is made, there is a phone discussion with HR personnel, the department manager, and recruiting staff to negotiate terms (depending upon your position/rank). The HR personnel and recruiting staff are very helpful.
