Easy Interview

SMB Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Herman Miller.

Interview Details – 1 Phone interview with recruiter with Toby, who is extremely nice, and the interview will sail through. It's not a real interview.
2 Phone interview with Regional Sales Director, where you will get general questions about what skills you have and what you think it takes to succeed, how you have been successful in the past, etc.
3 Regional Sales Director invites you to meet personally, and continues on same line of questioning.
4 Create a presentation for the National Sales Director, VP of Sales, and a couple coworkers to demonstrate basic presentation skills and answer a few more general questions.

Interview process is in general very easy, the questions did not probe very deep, and they generally see you in a more positive and credible light than many other interviewers.

Interview Question – How do you gather leads?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They don't let you negotiate salary, but there is no cap on your commission rates so in hindsight you should be able to squeeze a few more % points.

Engineering Manager Interview

Engineering Manager

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Herman Miller in January 2014.

Interview Details – The hiring process once the position is approved would involve our own onsite professional talent recruiter bring resumes to current managers and directors for review. Qualified candidates would be contacted and phone interviews would be conducted by the recruiter. 5-10 candidtates would be interviewed narrowing the field down to the top three for a 2nd round. A final selection would be made after the 2nd round of interviews.

Interview Question – This would be totally dependent on the candidates experience and background.   Answer Question
