Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group.

Interview

Came in for an interview after a quick call from a recruiting rep. Met with director of the office for approx. 30 min. The interviewer seemed a bit uninterested in me and telling me about what the potential job would involve. He dodged some of my questions and instead went on to tell me about the company's perks (including a yearly trip) and seemed to purposefully try to correct some of the negative stigmas associated with the company you can find online. He didn't strike me as particularly genuine.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group (Waltham, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted on the phone to set up an in person interview. Interview was pretty standard stuff. The interviewer was extremely disengaged though, friendly, and pleasant, but I thought he might fall asleep. Basically just recited a corporate script about their numbers and growth expectation. I was asked to come back for a secondary interview to discuss pay structure etc, but declined.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    3-step process. Normal interview questions and considerations. First round was just general character assessment, position details, and questions about resume. Second round was more about atmosphere, exact job details, pay scale, etc. Overall experience was very good. Both interviews were 1 on 1. The process is easy going but completely professional. Everyone in the office looked like they were happy to be there. Office space was also very professional.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group (Chester, PA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    An extremely friendly recruiter called and emailed me. We had a phone interview. It was conversational in tone. I was offered to interview both for an entry-level "marketing" position and an upper-level sales position. I came to the Chester, PA location, was given a brief personality test, and interviewed, locking-up a second interview within minutes of conversation, but of course, I dragged the interview on and it went on for approximately 45 minutes.

    I was told I was under-qualified for the senior sales position, which was understandable considering I graduated with my BBA this past May, but when I asked details about the "marketing" position, the interviewer simply said that would be elaborated on further in the second interview.

    The recruiter was aggressive about getting me in for a second interview and strongly hinted they would hire me and that I could start as soon as next week before I even had the second interview.

    Red flag: high employee turnover much?

    A recruiter, different from the original one called me the night before my second interview was to take place to confirm it. I said I would like to go to the interview only if the position I was interviewing for was NOT door-to-door sales as reading many reviews on here revealed. The recruiter said they would get in touch with the initial recruiter who reached out to me the morning before the interview and clarify and confirm once more.

    The recruiter never called. I attempted to call him that morning, and he never picked up. These recruiters are impossible to reach. Regardless, I arrived on time to the interview only to have the interviewer tell me I cancelled on them. I never cancelled. They cancelled on me without notice.

    I simply asked for clarification so I wouldn't waste my time going there, but I ended up going all the way back to Chester for the second interview anyway because the recruiters couldn't communicate or be honest. Clearly, there are communication issues and a lack of transparency considering they couldn't admit to me it was a door-to-door sales position even though I flat out asked them. The interviewer finally admitted to me that it was door-to-door sales when the second interview was supposed to take place.

    It felt like I was pulling teeth. We never had the second interview.

    Many of the reviews on Glassdoor must be written by recruiters or brainwashed employees. Door-to-door sales, long hours, and working every other Saturday is certainly not attractive, and qualified undergraduates with great grades and work experience can do MUCH better.

    Interview Questions

    • The initial interview was simple and straightforward. I'm sure the second interview would have been more intensive, but I highly doubt they would've asked any behavioral interview questions. It seemed like I had an offer after the initial interview.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group in January 2014.

    Interview

    Different than what their online ad says. Read all the reviews from everyone who works there and have worked there. You work Saturday's and could work up to 12am during some weekdays. You sit and wait for a text or email for your next appointment that can be an hour away with the chance the customer isn't even home. Sales consultants are not allowed to contact the customer prior. You are expected to close the sale after the presentation.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Different than what they post. From what they show online to what they really expect of you. Hard sale, pressuring customers to sign right there after a lengthy 3 hour presentation.

    I applied online – interviewed at Power Home Remodeling Group (Marlborough, MA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back place and everyone seemed friendly. met someone who just started work there and he was very happy. Overall the interview was simple, asked questions on motivation, background, and personal growth.

    Interview Questions

    • the most unexpected question was "what motivated me?". to be quite honest it wasn't the lack of an answer that went through my head, it was the abundance of answers that I could've given.   Answer Question
