    Default Ashley Furniture

    Thought I'd start a thread for these guys. I want to look into Ashley but I can't find any info on the Ashley website other than an app. Any info regarding pay, hometime, miles ect would be good. Thanks.

    I know some guys that drive for them here in Miss. They have a large manufacturing plant in Ecru,MS. Probably 200 or more trucks running out of there.

    Dont hold me to it,but I think the pay is around .35 per mile, plus drop pay, last I heard drop pay was like $20 per drop. I know they are paid Actual (Hub) miles. Lots of drops,5, 10,15,20 on each load. Some are small mom N pop stores downtown. Dressers,chests,tables,sofas etc. (Ooh my back). I considered them a few years ago,but decided against it. Too much work for me. LOL The guys I know make 60,000 to 70,000 per year. And Earn every Dime.

    Not trying to discourage you guys in any way, Just telling what little I know.

    Crap that sounds like a cake walk for me. I deliver for Sysco, 20,000+ pounds a day, 15-20 stops out the back of a 48 ft trailer with a ramp. And I barely cleared 50k. Furniture is easy, I've done it. Five to ten pieces, each stop. For 60-70k, I'm very interested. :P

    Ashley is always looking for drivers.
    Their standards are high but nobody seems to leave after they're here.
    Sure learn how to drive city with 48 and 53 footers.

    Someone suggested I look into them-- I checked their website but couldn't find much info either. How close to a terminal/yard do you have to live? do they not let you take the equipment home?

    No, you cannot take the truck home.
    That's when they do maintenance and even wash the truck for you.
    We have drivers that live far from the terminal and just sleep in the truck.
    I am close so I can take my 10 break at home sometimes but run home in my own vehicle.
    Give 'em a call or fill out an app. online.

    sorry, just isn't practical for me-- I live 250 miles away- one way commute! Unless they started me at 60 cent a mile.

    Every time I pick up a load in ECRU all I see in the warehouse are non English speaking people working the docks , So I wrote Ashley off as being a low rent outfit ...in MS they have the warehouse in ECRU and one about 30 miles north of there in north ripley MS .

    Well.... let's refresh this thread and get some more drivers for this company. They are SO desperate for them.... I think they're about to accept me!

    Would be my first real "solo" job. Been teaming since I got my CDL. Think I might jump.

    Since this thread was started in 2008, they have started a whole new division for drivers that is PTP (point to point.) No tailgate delivery to stores in small towns. All D.C. to another, or to a drop yard. Almost all drop and hook. No touch, period.

    Probably gotta live within 100 miles of a D.C. OR... in some cases... just one of their 50 drop yards.

    I've researched them, talked to them, and am in "negotiations" as we speak. Lol.

    Post if you have any questions OR advice. lol.
    Remember... friends are few and far between.

    They deliver quite a bit to Rent-A-Center stores. I do not work for Ashley but deliver to the Rent-A-Center stores and have met a lot of great people who drive for Ashley, most seem happy
