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

Pros

The people who work there make it a pleasant experience.
Get discount on furniture! (But how many times in a year do you buy one?)

Cons

1) Very little scope of career growth.
2) Have to work every single holiday.

Advice to Management

Build an atmosphere where people feel they can grow and prosper.
I know its a retail store but its sometimes its important to let people off on holidays, they have families too.

    I worked at Ashley Furniture full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment
    Very professional
    Meet new people every day

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism among management
    Poor communication from top-down

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on some of the store managers' displays of favoritism, and make promotions based on more than just sales numbers. Just because someone is a great salesperson doesn't necessarily mean they'll make a great manager as well.


  2. "They'll turn their head on you in a heartbeat."
