Sales and Service Interview

Sales and Service
Pendleton, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Les Schwab Tire Centers in August 2013.

Interview Details – It was very strange. I spoke with the assistant manager about the job which was basically a very informal interview. Mostly about my family and my kids and what I liked to do. Only about two questions that actually related to the job and my experience. Then I drove home and was called back in on the same day to speak with the store manager. He sat me down and told me all about Les Schwab and how great the company was. Then he just gloated about himself. Telling me all the store he has been at and how much his yearly salary and bonus was. It was by FAR the most unprofessional, inappropriate interview I have ever sat through.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. Mostly just questions that could end up in a discrimination lawsuit.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very poor. I wasn't even told how much I was going to make or what job I would be doing. Had I not been desperate for work it would have been a bigger issue.
