    Tampa Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture in August 2016.

    Interview

    Actually I didn't have an interview because HR lady just wrote me an email asking about my available times for phone interview and when I replied the same day (offering flexible times and asking about her time) she just disappear. Later I sent follow up email - trying to specify about phone interview and just nothing happened again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Kansas City, MO) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The store manager was awkward and we had no iContact. I am assuming he has a hard time with women. I don't believe he has experience in interviewing people. I don't feel like he has a personable personality

    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Advance, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Advance, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Arranged by a recruiter. There was a lack of clarity about the position - it reported to CIO but the people who would report to this person was not clear. The recruiter worked hard to prepare me for the types of questions and the overall type of organization. I felt like I had enough general background but the lack of clarity about the position made it difficult to feel good about the overall interview process. The initial on-site interview was with the CIO and a SVP. The CIO was late due to some issues at other facilities. He also did check his phone/messages multiple times during the meeting.

I followed up with a thank you email and no response. A week later I emailed that I was still interested but again no response and a day later I noticed that the position had been reposted.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was very casual, I didn't feel like I was being interviewed for a job. We talked more like we were old friends catching up rather than an actual interview process. I was asked my experience in sales, I didn't have much in furniture sales so we quickly moved on and talked about how I was liking the warm winter we had and some other nonsense.

    Vendor Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arcadia, WI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture (Arcadia, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Several phone screens, then on-site for in person interviews. I was recruited to a newly created position. HR reps were thorough and asked standard questions. Technical interviewers were less interested in determining aptitude than they were in detecting compliant behavior.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was not competitive for an IT-related position. They are a furniture manufacturer and don't appear to understand that weak benefits and low-tone management must be offset by higher pay.
