    I have been working at Ashley Furniture Homestore part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, able to get incentives if hitting a certain quota, job itself is quite simple

    Cons

    Awful management (micromanage and belittling), only able for a part time position, incentives are hard to hit during slow seasons, no communication between anyone, no benefits unless you work 40+ hours but they will do anything not to schedule you 40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Hire encouraging management

    I have been working at Ashley Furniture Homestore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pros would be the customers and helping people make their houses into homes.

    Cons

    No support from Store Manager
    Furniture would continuously come in later and there was nothing at the store level we could do
    Store level had to deal with issues that were from the warehouse of from the furniture never coming in as promised

    I worked at Ashley Furniture Homestore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent money at times but you will work hard for it.

    Cons

    Extreme favoritism by mgt. toward a select few- easy to lose sales because of poor mgt. decisions. Different rules for each day, selectively enforced or not at all...

    Advice to Management

    Find a career that you're good at because this isn't it regardless of what you've been told- the chickens will come home to roost one day...
