Work Hard
MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee), Arcadia, WiNovember 5, 2014
Pros: high pay
Cons: one short break, mandatory overtime almost every weekend, hostile environment, very physical labor, supervision on constant power trip.
You must be willing to work hard to make money. The pay scale is on a piece rate, so the harder and faster you work, the more money you make.

Catcher (Former Employee), Arcadia, WIApril 1, 2014
Ashley is a great company to work for, but ONLY if you are prepared to perform hard work everyday, most often 6 days a week. The pay structure is good and the benefits are good. If you think the best jobs are done sitting down at a keyboard, do not apply!

Chaotic ALL THE TIME and Management cant ever make a decision
Maintenance (Current Employee), Arcadia, WIJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: hectic, poor money for what you have to deal with.
Chaotic ALL THE TIME and Management cant ever make a decision. Its a great place to put a few years in and learn WHAT NOT TO DO. After that, it would be very wise to leave. People in production hardly ever lose their jobs despite their poor performances. When they leave, they are hired right back within several months time.

Varied work environment made it a pleasant work day.
Custodian (Current Employee), Arcadia, WIJune 29, 2013
My typical day would require to get jobs done at the appropriate time and in a timely manner. I would have a set amount of jobs to do, but could sometimes complete the jobs with some flexibility in the order I would do them. My fellow co-workers were friendly and good team workers, willing to help each other.

The hardest part of the job were cleaning – more... up after messes that were unpleasant.

The most enjoyable part was performing your jobs for people, who for the most part appreciated what you did. – less

Very energetic workplace with ability to increase options to move up in organization.
Buyer (Current Employee), Ecru, MSJune 24, 2013
Pros: ability to move up in organization
Cons: making everyone happy.
Typical day starts early in the morning and ends late in the afternoon. It reminds me of a puzzle being put together every day.
I have always thought being a multi tasker was an easy thing to do, but being the only buyer for a manufacturing plant with 2800 employees makes it difficult on some days. However, management makes it easier, because there – more... is not as much red tape in this organization as there would be in a public owned facility. Co-workers are all great to work with, because they are similar to me, they all have families that they are providing for.
The toughest part of the job is the size of the company and its demands. The easiest part of the job, is smiling and growing relationships with vendors. – less

Poor Management
Sales Specialist (Former Employee), Phoenix Metro Area, AZJune 6, 2013
Pros: laid back a bit occasionally
Cons: rude managers, rude office personnel, as close to false advertising as you can get
Unorganized management, poor consideration for the customer for real discounts. Out of 12 people in my training class I was the last one let go, for no reason at all except that someone possibly just didnt like me because I was gay?
Long hours, only the favorites got to leave early on slow days, 100% commmission. No overtime or consideration for hours – more... over 40.
Very slow in the summer, low pay, better other time of the year.
Customers cant use credit or no discounts? Cost of doing business folks!!
Run far away, any other furniture store is better. – less

Great workplace with awesome benefits and plenty of room for advancement
Maintenance (Former Employee), Pontotoc, MSMay 21, 2013
Pros: breaks, time off, professional style schedule, benefits
Cons: too many individuals in management with the same amount of power always leads to power struggles.
It is a professional style workplace with high set goals for everybody. They allow you a certain number of breaks in a set amount of time which is a good thing if you work a lot. They always push you hard to do better, more, and faster so that you might achieve a promotion.
