    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LifeWay Christian Resources (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    It wasn't difficult at all. They sat me down, looked over my resume, and asked what I knew about particular items regarding bible companies, authors, and the more popular faith based items. The manager was extremely laid back and a lot more casual than I had previously thought he would be. In fact, the entire atmosphere was a lot more relaxed than I had imagined.

    I applied online. I interviewed at LifeWay Christian Resources.

    Interview

    Very professional interview. Interviewed by two people. Fairly simple questions, yet made you have to think about a well put-together answer. Very friendly staff and management. Heard back from management fairly quickly, within the month. However, was not told pay rate. Went in, figured out it was minimum wage, and wasn't too happy about it.
