Designer Interview

Designer
Whittier, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Closet World in February 2010.

Interview Details – I found the ad in the penny saver- called the number, they called me back with a date and time for the first interview. I went in, sat with a group of about 10 people. We were talked to as a group, then taken by different managers to do one on one interviews. Was asked a bunch of standard questions. Then asked if I had sales experience, I didn't, they were happy about that (so they could brainwash me into thinking their way of sales was the only way). Then they asked the group if everyone was ok with the fact that we will be in training for the next 2 weeks and would be compensated with an undisclosed amount- several people got up and left right then and there. I didn't, came back for a second interview, then they called and said i got the job.

SALES DESIGNER Interview

SALES DESIGNER
San Diego, CA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Closet World in July 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process began with a phone call, mine, leaving a message I was interested in the position. On the return phone call, I spoke with the interviewer and talked about some elements, while we set up the interview.

I did some research on the company, and there seems to be a high turn over on the job, but there are people who make loads of money, but that is the exception not the rule.

As the interviewer described it, if you're willing to do what's in the training and follow there pitch, it works, and you make the sales. etc.

I am interested in helping people, create beautiful spaces not get people to spend money, on a particular kit... etc. but over all, I think the sales are what they are.

I think that on the onset, this looked like a great opportunity and I believe life is what you make it, but I don't think the job was a good fit for me.

Designer Interview

Designer
Whittier, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Closet World.

Interview Details – I had the company install my closets; saw their ad in the Pennysaver and called. They set up an interview with a sales manager. At the interview, the usual questions were asked; I felt that what they really wanted was to get a feel for the type of person I was, my work ethic, adaptability, etc.

Interview Question – Nothing. All the "usual" questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation; commission only sales. If the applicant feels that system will work, great. They did explain opportunities for advancement and benefits.

Closet Designer/Outside Sales Interview

Closet Designer/Outside Sales
San Ramon, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Closet World in March 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by phone and went in for a personal interview. I then was referred on to the person I would be reporting to, however she was located in Southern California, so we only spoke by phone. The product seems to be nice quality, the type of work sounded fun, however the company offers no benefits and the pay is strictly commission.

Interview Question – The interview questions were really not difficult. They were really just trying to get an idea of how willing I was to follow their specific formula for selling.   View Answer
