    I have been working at Ashley Furniture Homestore full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team approach, to allow for great work culture. Flexible schedule so there is balance between home and work.

    Cons

    There is a difficult time advancing if you are a female. It is definitely a mans industry. A woman can only advance so far here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and take a second look at the female work force, as you may be surprised.

    Crack down on store politics and favoritism

    Pros

    If you can figure out how to sell furniture the pay is pretty good

    Cons

    DSG (Dufrense/Spencer Group) is the company you really work for and they treat their employees like garbage by doing things like changing the commission structure constantly in order to benefit the company and not the employees. I've seen them on several occasions screw people out of commissions and forcing the employee's to pay back draw in one huge chunk leaving the employee with a tiny paycheck that will not make ends meet. They pretend to care for their employees under the guise of Christianity but in reality they are the least Christian acting company I've ever had the displeasure of working for.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and maybe they will stick around longer.

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, paid time off, training programs

    Cons

    Constant executive leadership and store management turnover, a few new unrealistic performance expectations

    Advice to Management

    To the owner, I would say to make the compensation plan and demands more reasonable on store management or sell the brand to someone who will.

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

    Pros

    It's a fairly easy job that doesn't require a ton of intelligence. Hourly plus commission totals out to forty to fifty grand for a decent salesperson, some earn more some less. Neither a pro nor con but be aware that each Ashley Furniture Homestore is individually owned & operated by a franchisee so your experience can vary. I work for one of the stores that the CEO owns under the LLC "Kingswere Furniture". There are about 17 Ashley Homestores under the kingswere llc that are located mostly in Florida & Georgia.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge. Management will procrastinate & usually hand out the coming week's shift schedule the day before it starts. They will schedule an hour training meeting on a Thursday morning for example & make attendance mandatory regardless if it's your scheduled day off & they do this about once a month. You get Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas Day off, expect to work every Saturday, Sunday & every other holiday known to man. Store manager is rarely there & works about 25hrs a week & puts the workload on the sales manager & a couple of salespeople that are in the "manager in training program". These poor saps often open & close the store & perform managerial duties without any additional pay in hopes of advancement that never materializes... ever.

    Advice to Management

    To the store manager: Be present - manage your store, be a leader.

    To corporate management: Pay attention to your employees that are on the front lines, their input is valuable.
