    Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fort Myers, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Myers, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Mattress Firm in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process started with the online application, and a rather difficult multiple choice test based on only words and numbers. The test gives them information on your personality. From that point I received a call about a week later from a recruiter in Houston and set up a phone interview which only lasted 10-15 min. The questions were general, "Describe yourself in 3 words" "Why do you want to work here" type things. After that I met the District Manager and 2 Area Managers at a local restaurant. They were all very nice, and each took turns asking questions about past employers. I was told they would be making a decision about 7 days later, but District Manager called 2 days later and offered me the position. The overall process took about 2 1/2 weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were the normal "What did you do in this situation" type of thing, however what through me off was when they wanted 2 answers from some questions. I had an answer ready for everything, but when they asked for 2 I really had to think quick.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. Training pay is set hourly, and from there you get a base salary.
