Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in O'Fallon, IL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in O'Fallon, IL
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at La-Z-Boy in June 2013.

Interview Details

I applied online through a third party job website. The next day I received an email from the Store Manager asking to set up an interview with her. The first interview took an hour and a half. She talked to me about the job and what I'd be doing. Then asked me about myself and my background. She wanted me to meet with the Designer, but she was busy at the time so we scheduled another time for me to come back and talk with her. This second interview lasted about 45 minutes, and she had a list of questions that she needed to ask me. After this interview I received a call from the Sales Manager and we briefly talked on the phone and she asked me more questions. I later came in to meet with her another time which only lasted 15 minutes. This whole process took me a month to get hired at this company.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at La-Z-Boy in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews, first usually with Store Manager, sort of creepy older guy with HUGE ego, then with owner's wife, sometimes both together, LOTS of motivation questions, they need to reveal if you are willing to rely on commission only income, base draw is only $800 gross per pay period. So cheap they only pay twice a month instead of every two weeks. BEWARE, and ask them to tell you truthfully HOW MANY employees the have burned thru in just the past few years. If they say fewer than 100-200 for 6-8 positions, then RUN. Hugely detail oriented owners and manager, they will deny your commission and keep it themselves if you make the slightest error, VERY HIGH PRESSURE SALES.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask how motivated you are, and if you are comfortable working on a commission or goal-based income stream. Beware, they will use unrealistic sales earnings of one or two employees who are reaching those sales dollars thru favoritism.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiations accepted. The base salary of $800 is non negotiable, and if you don't meet sales goals within 1-3 months you are gone unless you are an attractive woman and flirt with the manager (or more)...yech.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at La-Z-Boy in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a group interview, there were 7 of us, 3 no shows. We were one of 3 or 4 groups that day. Next day received e-mail saying they had such great candidates it was hard to make a decision we were all so good, but I wasn't one of them. 2 weeks later they posted the job again on Craig's list. I don't understand if they had so much talent when I interviewed why they were looking again, or didn't pull from the "great " ones 2 weeks before.
