Senior Operations Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Conn's.
Interview Details – My initial interview was a phone screen with a VP. The call was relatively short and felt more like a conversation than an interview.
When I went in for the face-to-face interview, I was very surprised by the facility. It is not in a great area and is a former clearance center for Conn's and Target store. It is in a strip mall with Floor and Decor, a Chinese buffet and late-night bingo.
The people were all nice, but the environment seemed very disorganized.
For a company that's been around for while, it seemed like a newly started company.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. There was not a structured set of questions and very few behavioral questions. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Did not seem like a fun environment and had little work/life balance based on conversations with others.

Warehouseman Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person - interviewed at Conn's in August 2009.
Interview Details – I called and they told me to fill out an application and I did. Talked to the HR guy that day. They told me I was interviewing for a warehouse management position, I had been a warehouseman before and I had just graduated college. I was not going to be a wharehouseman again, or so I thought. Told me someone else would call me in a few days. He did, asked me about my previous experience, did I ever manage people before. Asked me about my criminal record, all the normal stuff. Then I guess they forgot and I called them a week later, they told me to come in and they gave me the job. Little did I know, all the stuff about a warehouse manager was BS, and I was a warehouseman when I actually started working.
Interview Question – Don't remember any. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate.
