    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at American Furniture Warehouse in July 2015.

    Interview

    Students do not apply, not welcomed there *Do NOT apply if you have anything else going on* I received a call to come in for an interview the following day at the given time, and that was that. I went in for my interview and the person I had spoken too was late, she was an extremely nice individual though. I went to meet with a manager and after a few minutes we began the interview. I had to wait longer for the interview than it lasted. I am taking college classes twice a week early in the morning, which I told them. I am available every other hour besides that, including weekends, evenings, holidays, all the busy times. The manager did not even let me finish by the time she started lecturing about how her store is open 7 days a week from 10 to 10 and only closes 3 days a year and that they do not have time to have someone pick their schedule. She snapped at the other girl for not asking me about my availability. Again, let me remind I only have classes a couple hours a week, and I'm working in retail as a store manager in a mall, and am well aware of work hours.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Furniture Warehouse (Thornton, CO) in April 2010.

    Interview

    My initial interview experience was very straight forward. Within a week or two of submitting an application with my resume, I recieved a call to schedule an interview. This consisted of a 1 on 1 interview with a Sales Manager. I was offered the job on the spot, but I requested 48 hours to consult with my wife before accepting the offer. After accepting the offer I was asked to return to the office to fill out additional paperwork and complete a drug test.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Furniture Warehouse (Pueblo, CO) in June 2009.

    I submitted an application when the company advertised that they were looking to hire a warehouse person in the local newspaper. 2 days after I submitted the application, I was called in to talk about what the job entailed with the store manager. The interview was very informal. The interviewer didn't ask very many questions, but instead told me what the duties and hours were and how much I would be paid. I received no job offer.
