    I have been working at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you hustle and work hard, you can make a good living. You will have the opportunity to see more customers than a regular furniture store. Ashley is great brand that builds quality furniture.

    Cons

    It’s retail. So don’t expect work life balance.

    Pros

    I got to work with nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Chad Spencer is a horrible boss who pushes his people too much. You are expected to work on the weekends and sacrifice your personal life. My wife's and my relationship were strained due to the work pressure and the need to work on weekends. I am not sure how the CEO sleeps at night, knowing he is ruining people's personal lives.

    Pros

    None. It is a horrible place to work.

    Cons

    No respect for employees, lousy insurance, long hours, constantly changing pay and policies, clueless management and thats just the beginning. This company doesnt care about its employees, its customers or its products. If you read these reviews, read between the lines. You can tell when they are asking people to boost their rating and who is telling you the truth.

    Pros

    There are opportunities for growing one's career.

    Cons

    Even when there are opportunities to advance your career, it won't be enough to make employees stay with this company. Like me, there are a lot of employees who quit working here because of the extremely low pay. It was so unfair considering the amount of workload that were assigned to every employee.

    I worked at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time

    Pros

    It could have been a perfect place to gain wide experience from different projects.

    Cons

    There's no downtime here and employees are always overworked. This could have been a place where one could gain a lot of experience from wide variety of projects but due to overwhelming workload, you couldn't enjoy this opportunity at all. The CEO, Chad Spencer doesn't care about employees being overworked and overwhelmed. He doesn't care weather employees aren't motivated anymore.

    I worked at Dufresne Spencer Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned about how sale work and how important it is for the CEOs.

    Cons

    The CEO of this company, Chad Spencer, is a two-faced individual who portrays himself as a very nice person when he is in public. But behind closed doors, he can cut with his words. He respects no one but is only focused on profit generation.

    Pros

    A wide opportunity for experience and for career growth.

    Cons

    The pay is not fair compare to the amount of workload you have on your plate. It was frustrating when you're giving it your all, staying late in the office, stressing yourself because of never-ending work, then realizing all these weren't worth it if you'd just be receiving a pay less than what you deserve. The CEO doesn't care at all about the employees welfare which makes it worse.
