Company outlook

In the words of Carl Kirkland, "The Kirkland's store you shop today has the same focus as the Kirkland's you began shopping over 49 years ago: great style and great value, together with an ability to surprise and delight in home decor and gifts." You can still expect to find treasures for your home, whether you visit Kirkland's online or in-store. The founders of Kirkland's established more than a successful business when they brought Kirkland's to life; they established a company that helps us express who we are, one inspirational item at a time, which is a vision that Kirkland's family of employees have helped make a reality for the past 40 plus years. With new stores opening every month, you can look forward to having a Kirkland's near you! If you're interested in being part of a rapidly growing team of creators, innovators, analysts, and more, explore our available careers.

What we offer

What is special about working for us?

27c8cc5d2393e444016e.jpg

Kirkland's is more than a leading retailer of home decor and gifts. At Kirkland's, our unique products create the backdrop for memorable life events, like a family dinner, a child's first birthday, a 20th wedding anniversary, or just a cozy evening indoors.

WE'RE DIFFERENT THAN YOUR AVERAGE HOME DECOR RETAILER.

Walk through a Kirkland's store and you'll see; our products aren't displayed on row after row of cold, metal shelves. Together with our store associates, we create inspirational environments that delight the senses, spark memories, and inspire creativity. 

WE BELIEVE THAT GREAT STYLE CAN COME AT A GREAT PRICE.

 In 1966, Kirkland's was co-founded by Carl Kirkland in Jackson, TN, with a single belief in mind: great style can come at a great price—always.

 

How would we describe the company culture?

WE'RE IMMERSED IN THE COMMUNITIES WHERE WE LIVE AND WORK.

 We believe in providing customers with everything they need to create inspirational living spaces, but we also believe in living inspirational lives. We honor this commitment through long-standing partnerships with local and national community-oriented organizations. Read more about our community involvement . We're strongly rooted in Tennessee and Jackson is still home to a Sales Support and Distribution Center. Our headquarters is located in Brentwood, TN within the Maryland Farms business community. At all levels of the organization, team members use their talents to help create engaging backdrops for customers' everyday lives, whether it's through merchandising, marketing, planning, accounting, and much more. Everyone plays an important role—even our interns! Explore career opportunities at Kirkland's to start the next chapter of your career.

Overall compensation for your work

Depending on if you were liked or not, that depended what you got. If you were liked, you got the hours. If not, you were lucky if you got four hours a week.

Work-Life Balance

Depending on if you were liked or not, that depended which you got. If you were liked, you got the hours. If not, you got more of a life.

Suggestions for improvement

  • When a working ends up calling the district manager for an issue/problem, fix the problem. Keep that person informed on what's going on with the issue.

What I like about the company

The discount was nice.

What I dislike about the company

When I mentioned something to the district manager about a situation, nothing seemed to happen. Other then lip service on how it opened up an investigation.
