Very Easy Interview
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 October 2012.
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 October 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.

Interview Details – I found the ad online and was contacted very promptly. Spoke to a representative who sent me out for an in person interview. The in person interview was very eye opening. You get the feeling right off the bat that your comfortable and this is a great company. The man interviewing me ended up offering me a job and I had 2 others offered. I declined the other 2 and it was the best career decision I've ever made.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 - 10 years? With most companies coming out of school you just looking for a job so your not thinking long term but this company does which was refreshing. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in July 2012.
Interview Details – Phone interview with a in house recruiter. This person would not tell me anything about the salary or the comissions. This person spoke for over 20 minutes without even asking me any questions. This person spent over 7 minutes trying to sell me on the company 3 day yearly trip, with upper management. I read on here that this starting salary is 26K. This is not B2B sales, you are selling to home owners who are the end users. Maybe a good start for someone trying to build their resume from scratch.
Interview Question – I seriously can't even remember if I was even asked one question besides, doesn't that sound great?! Answer Question

Interview Details –
I first applied to PHRG then got a quick call back within 15 minutes. I went into the interview pretty excited to see what they had to offer. Having to drive through Chester, PA was an adventure itself, very scary but the building was nice. I sat down and filled out a standard personality test while I waited for my interview.
The interview was very easy, I think I only answered 2 questions then just listened to the company and job description. They have many job descriptions online and all the job names are different but they all mean the same thing... sales. Door to door sales, rain or shine, heat or snow your going to be out in neighborhoods knocking on stranger's doors to see if they want an estimate for windows or siding. I assume you have to be thick skinned and ready to get some doors slammed in your face. If you have any type of degree your more than qualified and if sales is your thing this may be a great opportunity but just not my cup of tea.
