If you have experience, skill, drive and a desire to be part of a winning and growing team with room for advancement in the future – come join our family and be a part of the only real hometown team!

Gardner-White Furniture was founded in 1912 as a place where customers could find great styles at a great value.  More than a century later, Gardner-White is the only family owned and operated home furnishings business serving the Metro Detroit market!  We are a nimble organization and have a lot of industry firsts to our name.  We lead the industry in bedding sales, in sales-per-square-foot, and in sales associate pay.

Gardner-White is also a leader in the community, partnering with terrific organizations like COTS, Humble Design, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Volunteers for America, and many others, to keep improving the metro Detroit community. Beyond working with and supporting these great partners, last year Gardner-White provided 1,000 mattresses to children in need in preparation for the school year.

With just over 500 employees and an average tenure of 20 years, Gardner-White has a stellar reputation for providing extensive training and mentoring.  The idea behind this is to prepare our team members that with our growth and success, comes promotion opportunities from within the company.  Gardner-White has created a training and succession plan for our warehouse staff members.
