    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Levin Furniture (Greensburg, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I filed out a short application online, was contacted and interviewed by phone. Then I filled out a more detailed, lengthy application. After that, there was a video interview with 5 questions and a personality survey. I then met with the Store Manager for a face to face interview. I took a drug screening test and had a background check done.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Levin Furniture.

    Interview

    After the initial application you get called in for a person to person interview and if that goes well you complete a video interview. The interview atmosphere was very relaxed and covered basic skills and sales style. The hardest part of the online interview was that it never loaded correctly and I was asked to resubmit...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Levin Furniture (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    It's a long process to get hired in at Levin Furniture. A preliminary application must be filled out online, then the recruiter asks you to do a video interview, which consists of 5 questions. If you pass that, the next stage is an online assessment similar to a brief psychological test. Then you will either have one or two actual interviews with store management. Then they confer with the Recruiter to be sure the candidate is a good fit. If so, you are offered the position. The office staff, as well as the salespeople, are very easy to speak with and they all seem quite satisfied with their jobs. You may interview with the store manager as well as the sales manager on two separate occasions, as they want to be sure you're a good fit for their store.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions include what are you looking for in a work environment, what is your definition of success, what do you hope to earn, your greatest personal achievement, what would your prior employers say are your best and worse traits, what can you being to our team?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Levins is trying to reduce their costs in paying benefits by hiring part time associates, but they work almost as many hours as the full timers, and their is a lot of training without pay, since it's all commission. Plus the salespeople are on an up system, where everyone takes turns waiting on customers, but with extra part time associates it may be hard to make as much commission...too many salespeople in some stores. Most other stores offer a base plus commission.
