The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro in August 2010.
Interview Details –
Applied online, got invited to take a online questionnaire, at the end was further invited to a phone interview where you could choose a date/time to your liking (they call right on time btw).
Scotts sends out continous updates letting you know where you are in the interview process or if your still being considered as well as surveys to provide feedback on the interview process.
Phone interview was successful and met with Sales Manager for a in person interview with a store visit to demonstrate your merchandising sales experience. Got offered the job a week later.
Sales managers are very thorough in describing the job and expectations, despite the fact that they are selling fertilizer and grass seed, there is an entrepreneurial aspect in their culture and the values they believe in.
Negotiation Details – There was opportunity to negotiate your hourly wage depending on your expereince and what you could bring to the table. I've heard that now Scotts tell you what your wage is with no negotiation.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro in June 2010.

I was contacted by the Human resources department of the Scotts-Miracle Grow company after I submitted an appliction online. Had a few formal questions to ask then set me up for a phone interview with an HR representative.

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation. Not a lot of flexibility on amount of pay for this job.
