Friendly Co-workers, Work Life Balance was great.

Pays better than a lot of other Furniture Manufacturers. Great place to work, except for constant shipping delays. Furniture Market was a welcomed change of pace.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Shipping Delays

Hard place to work

My typical day at work was me assemble and repair furniture. I learned how to assemble furniture and paint and repair furniture. Management was good and understanding. The culture at Stanley Furniture was friendly. The hardest part of the job was working late and not being able to see my family, during the summer it would often get hot. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to sometimes finish up early and go home.

Pros

Good insurance

Cons

No Air Conditioning

Family Environment

Stanley Furniture (Stanleytown, VA) was a very good company to work for. There was a close knit, family atmosphere and the managers maintained personal relationships with their subordinates. Multiple opportunities for advancement throughout the company. The work/home life balance could be out of balance at times, especially during Spring and Fall markets.

not to bad

It was an ok place to work manager's not to friendly but coworkers were great to work with a typical day at work was busy so time went by quick
Was this review helpful?

It was a great place to work, and had a lot of people who had done that type of work their whole lives. We were sad to see Stanley close.

The line I worked on at Stanley was a calm-relaxed type of envioronment with everyone enjoying their jobs. The management was a part of the group and was interested in you as a person, not just a number. The hardest part of my job at Stanley Furniture was driving around a curvy mountain road. It was prone to have rock slides and it was scary at times, especially when there was snow and ice on it.

Pros

Friendly atmosphere.

Cons

The drive to a different town from where I lived, on a treacherous mtn. road
