Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in May 2012.
Interview Details – Very simple. You get contacted or you contact them. Possibly a one to two step interview process. They learn a little about your background and expectations; you have the ability to get your questions answered
Interview Question – What do you see your self doing a year to five years from now. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group.
Interview Details – Annoying interview process. They ask you to suit up when you're just going to be wearing a uniform anyway. Some people have to go in for TWO interviews, some don't. Its pointless and alot of lying is going on that you will discover after 2 or 3 weeks with the company
The only thing I liked was the hiring process. There wasn't a ridiculous amount of paperwork to be filled out.
Tell people the TRUTH. They say youll work from 11a-7p . You might think, oh okay so we'll be back at the office at 7pm and ill be heading home shortly after. WRONG!
You head back to the office around 8pm (thats the time the call center closes.) Add another 15 or 20 minutes for the van driver to pick everyone up from different sections of town. Add drive time back to the office. Some could be close, some could be nearly an hour away! Basically, expect to be home around 9pm very often. You're wasting about 10 hours every day with this company. I wish they'd tell you THAT in the interview.
Interview Question – What would you say is your WEAKEST point as a salesman? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiating... Everyone makes $26k a year. if you want more money, they expect you to put up numbers. which is fine BUT the website said base pay is between 26 and 36k LIES
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in March 2011.

Negotiation Details – What were you able to negotiate? What advice would you give others considering an offer?
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in May 2012.
Interview Details – Usually one day after applying, you are contacted by the talent acquisition department and scheduled for an interview with the Regional Vice President of Marketing. You are then given a survey to complete before the interview. The interviewer will ask of your personal experiences, work history, and/ or sales experience.
Interview Question – How did you deal with customer relations at previous jobs? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in May 2012.
Interview Details – Expect a phone call from a "talent acquisition specialist" moments after you submit your resume. This can be misinterpreted as a good thing, as though the company really has its stuff together. The truth is they have an extraordinarily high turnover rate and are always hiring just about anyone who applies.
Your interview will be with the Regional Vice President of Marketing or Sales. Note: I interviewed with the RVP of Marketing even though I was looking to get into sales. Sharply dressed and very buddy-buddy, he will do his best to warm up to you immediately. Instead of a typical interview process that would consist of various questions about your resume and what you can do for the company, you may be asked at most one question about each. And then your interviewer will launch into a very scripted sounding rundown of the company, its top-performers, income potential, various statistics, the lifestyle, perks and so on. It's great bait but you'd do well not to take it. After each enticing point he will attempt to "tie you down" with a question like "doesn't that sound great?" Beware.
Interview Question – There wasn't a single difficult question, as there were, at most, two questions asked. "Doesn't this sound great?" "Would you take the job if I were to offer it to you?" Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Too scripted. Too much smoke and mirrors.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in October 2012.

Scheduled an in person interview which lasted about 40 minutes about how the company is thriving and what not. made to second interview, which essentially was a more extensive part of what the job entails. Immediately was hired on the spot.
Interview Question – how would you make this business flourish? Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in July 2012.
Interview Details – Received a call from someone at the home office to feel me out over the phone and schedule an interview with the regional VP of marketing. I met with the VP several days later. The actual questions directed at me were very typical interview questions asking about my work history. The VP spent a ton of time selling the company, the hours, and the lifestyle. At the end of the interview he told me, "This is usually a 2 or 3 interview process but I feel good about you so I'm prepared to offer you the job now." This is a line that he feeds everyone.
Interview Question – No difficult questions were asked Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation possible.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in October 2012.
Interview Details – Went in for one interview where the VP of marketing pretty much tried to sell me the job saying "Doesn't that sound great", after everything he said. He basically went over my resume and asked me to explain some things without every really asking me any questions you would get in an interview. He offered me the job on the spot.
Interview Question – Doesn't that sound great!? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Commission only, crazy hours, they don't pay for your gas when your are going to be driving around everyday.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in May 2010.
Interview Details – The hiring process is pretty much a joke, you go in they act like you have competition at the postion during hiring and then they say " I don't always do this but i'm going to offer you the position right now" It was done for everyone that i worked with and the reason it's done is because they hire as many people as possible to put in the field, pay you in a way so that everyone can but won't make the bonuses that they tell you in the interview will allow you to make the type of money they say you'll make, If your above average at the job of course you'll make good money but it's not the way they say in the interview. While there they changed the pay structure on the way we get paid a few times to benefit the company and make it harder for us to make good money. By hiring everyone that applies the company can make money off more people without having to pay the type of money you'd expect for the hours and work you put in
Interview Question – There weren't any hard questions, its the easiest "interview' you'll ever go on Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They tell you you won't be working 12 hours a day...but you will. They will make you feel like your not part of the team if you don't attend every training session. Even if your doing well your told that your setting a bad example. I worked from 9 to 9 everyday and then had 2 hours of travel time a day so that's a long day for anyone
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in June 2012.
Interview Details – Initial phone contact is high pressured and not meant for you to have much time to think about your decision. Phone interview is almost the same, just making sure you are able to speak well and answer basic questions. The face-to-face time is very professional and high energy. They are very quick to make you feel a part of the family.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 20 years? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None. They mass hire and have high turnover, so they do not negotiate.
