    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Design Within Reach in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    It's typically a two-step process where you interview with the Studio Proprietor and then, if the Proprietor gives the thumbs up, the Area Manager. Be prepared to discuss Design and Mid-Century furniture. Interview will also probe into how you deal under pressure and how you feel about engaging with customers. The key is to never ask, "can I help you find something today?" but instead start a conversation with the customer about the item they are currently looking at.
