Manager In Training Interview

Manager In Training

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Mattress Firm.

Interview Details – I was notified because a recruiter saw my Resume' online. His name was Bryce. He was very nice and just asked general information and some things about my resume'. He told me what they were looking for and that I didn't need previous experience to sell mattresses. He set up a second interview with someone closer to where I lived. The second interview was actually at a building and they asked me more questions about my personality. They are looking to see if they feel like someone would buy from you, would want to work with you for long periods of time, and could you be their boss one day!

Interview Question – Sell me this item.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Manager In Training Interview

Manager In Training
Houston, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Mattress Firm in September 2011.

Interview Details – You will apply online and if they like you they will ask you to fill out an online personality and IQ test. The next step will be for a recruiter to call you and conduct a phone interview to screen you before forwarding you on to interview with a District Manager. If the District Manager likes you they will offer you a job providing you pass background check etc.

Interview Question – They will ask you behavioral interview style questions and may in fact have you interview with more than one person. An example question would be like...tell me about a time where you had a disagreement with a coworker or boss, or where you went above and beyond the line of duty? Make sure you practice standard questions about strengths and weaknesses etc.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation because everyone gets a base that is a draw against commisions and bonuses.
