Very Easy Interview

Design Consultant Interview

Design Consultant
Everett, MA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Blinds to Go in November 2012.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – How old are you? Where were you born? What is your "race"?   View Answer

Design Consultant Interview

Design Consultant
Springfield, VA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Blinds to Go in November 2009.

Interview Details – 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

Reason 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.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Blinds to Go.

Interview Details – 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 Question – If you could have any job in the world, real or imaginary what would it be?   Answer Question

Design Consultant Interview

Design Consultant
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Blinds to Go in November 2011.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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.   View Answer

Ist interviewer was nice and intelligent.
