Company Culture

They are not a family oriented company as they portray it's all all out making money without taking into consideration their over worked employees

Support from management

Managers are liars and very unsupported it's all about getting ahead no matter who you step on

Teamwork

On the floor there is lots of team work but within the office setting you are on your own.

Freedom to work independently

No freedom to work independently director and superintendents always are looking to tell

Internal Communication

Supervisors, superintendents and directors do not communicate.

Rare to see a women in a high role unless they are in Wisconsin

That's a joke they find a way to push older colleagues out the door

Career Development

No career development or advancement

Overall compensation for your work

No raise in 2 years

Office / Work Environment

Very hostile and intimidating work environment.

Environmental Friendliness

If you like being cursed at by director and supervisors this is the place for you and do not ask your supervisor for help you will be considered unprofessional

Work-Life Balance

There is no work life balance

Company Image

The image is good but in reality it's just an image that is fake

Support from management

Management blames each other and when that doesn't work they blame their people.

Teamwork

Used to work together - now people are just in it for self

Freedom to work independently

Even professionals are micro-managed

Internal Communication

All lies - cant believe a word anyone in management says

Gender Equality

See above.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Other than the top where everyone is very old or acts like they are - they don't want people who are older.

Career Development

people who know people or are related to the top managers get promoted. But they get the jobs and don't know how to do them.

Overall compensation for your work

Not even worth the gas to get there

Office / Work Environment

like being in jail.

Environmental Friendliness

obviously they waste a lot.

Work-Life Balance

The worst of any company anywhere. Routine required OT and professionals have to work 6-7 days a week. 6 is required.

Company Image

So many complaints from customers and the service people literally hang up on customers so they don't get yelled at for long calls

Job Security

Constantly shutting down with no pay and get rid of more people than they hire.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not even possible. They don't want handicapped people. When I worked there I never even saw one.

Workplace Safety

Always in trouble with the government on this one and the safety teams hate the employees and if you are on their list they will drug test you again and again - with someone - not always even the same sex watching you

Challenging Work

Impossible expectations and no goals.

Inclusive / Diverse

Routinely discriminates unless you are white male. Likes Hispanics for manufacturing. If you worked there before and want to come back - they won't hire you if you ever were injured on job.

The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better marketing.. TV and radio adds. The newspaper doesn’t bring ppl in. Private sales we have to bring customers back are no better than what we normally run. Lack of communication, changes are made and not communicated.

What I like about the company

The people you work with in the stores generally get along and become a family. Working long hours to make a good living. The family that runs the stores is working hard to improve and update as possible as of recent. But don’t seem to grasp the changes in the world of retail. The competitive market and the ability to search our products with local competitors to make sure customers get the best deal. But hard to compete with online stores who don’t have the overhead or knowledge of the products or back the products with a one year in home warranty that Ashley Furniture offers their customers!

What I dislike about the company

Marketing and the Ashley Furniture homestore website and other programs are not easy to operate or run slow. The ability to keep stock on merchandise or get merchandise in on time for customers.. especially new product! Being competitive. Sometimes our in store sales don’t meet online promotions, other competitors.. etc
