    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Arhaus Furniture in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went through two rounds of interviews with different managers. Each time it took many back and forth phone calls to schedule anything and both times the interviewer was 45 minutes late to see me.

    All questions were rather basic. They did have my resume so they knew much of my past before I arrived.

    Interview took place on the floor and had many interruptions. It lasted about 75 minutes, but a total of 120 minutes with the lateness described.

    The dress was business casual. Two interviewers at once.

    I asked very specific questions about the poor customer and employee reviews the company has (knowing I may lose my chance of being hired) but was assured over and over that all of those reviews were exaggerated and false. NOT SO.

    Interview Questions
    • None, really. All questions were basic... How would you approach a customer on the sales floor? What and why is your availability? Experience in sales? They did not seem to worried or ask much about any past design experience- which was weird for a design job.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    None at all. The company has three pay options and you just have to pick one.

    Interior Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Arhaus Furniture in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the store manager, Cheryl in Cherry Creek after the initial phone interview. I thought I would go to find out specifics to that location, ie: based on previous employees, what a full time person could expect to make in your first few months to a year. I am taking into account, she told me she had worked there for 6 years, so she would have the knowledge.

    I understand no guarantees can be given and it would vary based on how aggressive one is, however, she would not say anything beyond, " I already told you, the salary and commission structure". Yes, she had, but the avoidance was a huge warning sign to me, to not pursue the position.

    After the other reviews on glassdoor, and my experience, I know I am better off.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really out of the ordinary. Although it would have been nice if it had started on time and not exceeded the time they said it would take.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Arhaus Furniture in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was both phone interview with recruiter and then in person with the Regional Manager. The in person interview was only 45 minutes and not much information was shared about the company or hours expectation. There was no mention of not getting weekends off and having to work every Sunday.

    Interview Questions
    • No real surprises here but they do ask you to sell them somethng.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation because it is draw plus commission. They were not truthful about the commission and how it worked so need to ask lots of questions and get it in writing because they change it often.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Arhaus Furniture in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Pleasant interview process with 2 HR employees. They were very open and friendly. Honest about the negatives of the job. I did feel that they were unintentionally misleading about the part time salary...there is none. It is a draw against future commissions. That is not a base salary. The advertisements all stated that a part time sales specialist would receive a base pay of $33000 plus commission. This is not true! Even full timers only receive a $18000 base pay, possibly that is a draw too but I did not interview for that position. Overall, nice interview but the company needs to re-evaluate their pay structure and inform their HR about how they compensate. I sent several emails to HR requesting clarification and never heard back until the morning of my 2nd interview. I did not pursue the job further.

    Interview Questions
    • Well, we don't have a cleaning crew, so salespeople are required to help clean bathrooms, toilets, dust, vacuum. Are you okay with this?   Answer Question
