MISSISSIPPI - Ashley Furniture is looking for 300 full-time employees to work at three of its manufacturing and distribution facilities in Ecru, Saltillo, and Ripley, Mississippi. The company says it is looking to fill these positions as soon as possible, due to increased demand in sales of home furnishings. It's also seeking 100 employees at its manufacturing facility in Advance, North Carolina.
 
Benefits are offered, including medical and dental insurance, 401k, and paid vacation and holidays.
 
“At Ashley, we hire for attitude and train for skill,” said Danna Szwed, Executive Vice President of Human Resources at Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc. “We are proud to not only offer our associates competitive pay and benefits, but the opportunities for fast-paced learning and career growth.”
 
Ashley Furniture laid off a "small portion" of its workers in Arcadia, Wisconsin soon after the virus pandemic began. It said it temporarily closed some of its manufacturing and distribution operations in Mississippi and reduced its workforce in others.
 
Established in 1945, Ashley is the largest manufacturer of home furnishings in the world. The company had $5.7 billion in annual sales in 2019. It runs 12 manufacturing plants and employs more than 31,000 workers.
