Sales Interview

Sales
Richmond, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sealy in July 2010.

Interview Details – While I understand that Sealy is a great place to work, their interview process is crazy! I first met with a recruiter (who sought me out). I provided a resume, W2's tax forms, etc. Once that was approved I then interviewed approximately 1 hour from my home. I traveled there and interviewed with 2 corporate guys. The interview went great. I was then asked to travel 4 hours to meet with another sales rep. I did that (8 hours round trip) and again i felt as if the interview went well. I was then asked to travel two hours to meet with another rep and job shadow. I did that and was again told that everything was going well and I was a finalist. I was then asked to travel to their Corporate HQ and meet with the VP and two other individuals. I traveled 5 hours (10 hours round trip) for the wierdest interview I have ever had. I was asked to start in the 11th grade and tell my life story...huh? So anyway when all of that was done....I felt like I did well and was told by everyone that I was selection. Well....I didnt get the job. I guess my life story wasn't entertaining enough. Great company but be prepared for the interview process.

Interview Question – Start with the 11th grade and tell me about your career progression.   View Answer

Buyer Interview

Buyer
South Gate, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sealy in July 2008.

Interview Details – The interview was a typical one on one interview. I applied online and was called in directly. My experiences didn't quite match up with the mattress commodity and it seemed like the wanted someone that had direct experience in that particular field.

Easy Interview

Marketing Interview

Marketing

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sealy.

Interview Details – The overall process was a little drawn out, from first contact to hiring took over 2 months, however the experience as a whole was positive and painless. It seemed slightly disorganized and disjointed, I interviewed with 4 different people in person in one trip and prior to the in person I had a 20 minute phone interview with HR and then a shorter 10 minute conversation with HR when setting up the appointment for the in person interview. Upon hiring it was "hit the ground running, or get run over" mode, there was zero training, you learned the company culture and expectation while working.

Interview Question – Really nothing unexpected, if you don't know your area of expertise it will be caught and you won't be hired. If you are not lying, know what you're doing in your field there were no curve balls.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was very brief, they asked what I was currently making (which varied greatly) they made an offer on the high average side of it. I didn't counter because the benefits and offer as a whole met my minimum criteria.
