Material Handler (Former Employee) – Laporte Indiana – June 14, 2019
Breaks are nice 2 paid 15 mins and one unpaid 40 mins in 8 hours shifts but always going home early cuz of lack of work. very little overtime but may not even see it because you will work 10 hour shift early in the week just to go home early late in the week.

Great place to work, should have stayed there. Always learning, family togetherness that is hard to find in a work place. A great place for new supervision to learn about how to and how not to treat their employees.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – La Porte, IN – November 23, 2018
The company promotes from within, and always is looking for talented team members that could be trained into future roles within the company. The work environment is very focused on day to day goals, and the work hours vary a lot through out the year. Some weeks you will only get 32 hours and others you will get 48 hours. It is based on sales and in the end you should plan for an average of 38 hours for a standard week. Management should add 10 hours to whatever the production team is working to cover their additional responsibilities.
Great break room with pool, basketball, direct TV, convenience store, discounts, benefits are good too
I made six figures but lost the quality time with friends and family. Most of the top sales consultants I knew in the company were divorced or single and worked weekends. The company is solid but the only people that are paid what they are worth are the sales consultants everyone else is underpaid. They have cut compensation for everyone routinely since I have been there.
Pay for consultants is still good.
Bad work life balance, cut commissions and benefits mulitiple times over the past ten years.
Receiving Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ruther Glen, VA 22546 – September 11, 2018
A typical day of work is at least 8 hours with two 15-minutes paid breaks and a 30-minutes unpaid lunch break. Dress comfortably according to the weather. During the summer it is hot & during the winter it is cold, but you will work up a sweat. The management team is very helpful and fun to work with.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Thomasville, GA – May 18, 2018
Working 2nd shift you wil not make 40 per week..the heavy lifting takes a toll on your body and you will get no help. You have a time limit to clear a truckload of furniture that ways sometimes over 200lbs and will rarely get help. The low pay is not worth breaking your back for this company. Better off working for capstones.

Standard workday consists of pushing/pulling furniture ranging from 8 pounds to 340 pounds. Corporate and management truly don't care about your well being. It is about the bottom dollar for them. They have a system measuring your every second of the day and will arbitrarily change the numbers to make you push even harder. As a material handler, look forward to waking up with your body hurting every day. Everything is loaded/unloaded by hand. If you are not in any type of shape good luck lasting through the probationary period.
An amazing workplace with internal leadership that was extremely supportive. A typical day at ASI Inc. started an hour or two before the shift started so we could converse with first shift and understand where we stood for startup. After that, run a yard listing report detailing all product that was currently in the yard. Based on the report, make a educated decision on what product needed to be received that day for customers orders, detention purposes, buyer information, samples that need to be received. After developing a curriculum for the first 3-4 hours, hold a pre-shift meeting with the team members outlining what the goal was for the evening and how we could get to it. This is important, always keeping an ear open for any ideas or recommendations that maybe I didn't think of. The first thing I learned was when I was on the floor and that's teamwork. It's not an easy job so you needed to be there for your co-workers as they needed to be there for you. One of the best parts of the job, I developed life long friends from there because of that. As I progressed into my career I learned more interpersonal skills, time management and how to be a complete leader. The management was always supportive and insightful when I needed a question answered. The workplace culture was one of a family, the company has been family owned from the beginning and continues to be. It was something that trickled down from the director to the GM to the managers to the supervisors and to our team members. The hardest part of the job was when we were really busy with a high yard list and little roommore... in the warehouse, finding somewhere to stage all inbound product. We had to get creative. The most enjoyable part of the job is without doubt the interaction I had with my employees. It was fun to talk to them, not always about work and what needed to be accomplished but, about personal things that affected them outside of work. Honestly, it made me feel good that they had the confidence to confide in me and seek advice. I guess the most enjoyable part of my job is.........people.less
Annual supporter of Race for the Cure, Really great people to work with, Supportive management that would do anything for it's employees, Great benifits.
Would have to work 70+ hours a week without compensation.

Once you walk in and clock in at 6am be ready to perform your morning stretches, listen to the briefing and then move lots of heavy furniture. This is no job for the weak and there is no space for a slow pace.
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 12, 2017
The Call Center at American Signature Inc has gone through a frequent change of management within the years that I have been employed with the company. I feel that management within the Call Center can do a better job of listening to the representatives & supervisors.But overall, American Signature Inc's Call Center is a decent place to work.
American signature is a great family owned company to work for. They have an open door policy and theirs very fair to all workers. In this company there is a lot of room for advansment as the company grows larger daily.
Warehouse Personnel (Former Employee) – La Porte, IN – August 11, 2017
American Signature is a nice business to work for. Unfortunately, the system they have in place now for the workers is ridiculous. It feels as if ur constantly under a microscope being watched for everything u do. Timed for bathroom breaks and all. Can get really stressful for newcomers
Basketball court out back for breaks also u can leave on them.
