Interview

The company seems cool overall..I went to to one of the stores for a visit and that went great,had a phone interview and that went well also,had a 1 on 1 interview with a recruiter and that went excellent..when I had my last interview the manager told me to my face I wouldn't fit in with their company standards,I was judged on not remembering the meaning of my first name,he crossed out my first name and wrote it out the way he wanted to on my resume,told me there's no such thing as bad management,didn't believe my story to why I wanted to leave my current employer,kept looking out the door to stare at the receptionist and told me to my face I can't take criticism without even knowing me..that made me look at the whole company in a whole new perspective and if you really look at this situation it's a form of discrimination..let me add..the whole interview was very unprofessional and no he wasn't another race..never have I experienced something like this and I hope this doesn't happen to another person again..I actually tried to reach out to someone to discuss it and I was ignored

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Blinds to Go (Everett, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The found my resume online. Called me in to go see the store. Manager asked me illegal questions regarding my age and ethnic background. Called me back in to meet with both HR people. Kept asking illegal interview questions. They didn't like it when I asked them questions about working 10 hour days or having to clean the bathrooms.

    It seems to me that they only want to hire people who are in their twenties and straight out of college.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Blinds to Go (Springfield, VA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was rather informal, but the people were professional and extremely friendly. I cannot stress enough how great the people were- the position's pay was the only big problem.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    They don't seem to treat their employees well, making them stand up all day. Why would they not be able to sit on a tall stool while clicking on a computer? Sitting wouldn't make them look any less professional. But my main problem was that the pay is extremely low, especially considering the level of education they want their employees (who are basically glorified salespeople who do absolutely no design work) to have.

    Interview

    Once they got in touch with me and then I had a store visit the next day. after the store visit I called them back and scheduled a first interview. The interviewer was smug and kind of rude. Then I was sent for a second interview a week later and it went rather well. I was in the training course shortly after that.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Blinds to Go (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It didn't take long to receive a call from BTG.
    1. Phone call & a short interview getting to know yourself
    2. They'll tell you to visit one of their store locations just to show you what they do on a daily
    3. Call back the recruiter if you're interested in the position set a date and time for the face to face interview.
    4. Go to meet with the CEO in New Jersey. (Also, that's where the training is located)

    Anybody can get this job, they just sucker you in saying what you want to hear.
    Plus one interim manager has to manage 6 different locations traveling around for weeks which can be very tough.

    Interview

    You first do a phone interview, then an interview in store. They ask you alot of unecessary personal questions like what jobs your parents and siblings have. What places you've travelled to and could they look at your passport to see your stamps.
    Once hired they send you for a week long training in New Jersey, which is a waste you dont learn anything there that they couldnt of taught you in the store.

    Interview

    Very unique hiring process! The first make you visit one of the stores where you spend time with a Design Consultant that will run you through our day-to-day experiences. You will get a chance to understand that company and the job so much more before you enter the interview process - giving everyone an opportunity to see that job before they accept it.

    Interview Questions

    • I wouldn't say there were any "difficult" questions, but you are expected to be very open an honest during the interview. They want to see what kind of a person you are, not to hear about past experience and how you handled certain situations.   1 Answer
