I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Simmons Bedding in January 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter who made it seem like a great opportunity. Interview was scheduled and the HR Manager told me she would call me back to confirm date and time, she never did, so I did not show and she and the recruiter called me wondering where I was and I told her she said she was going to call and never did. I finally get in an the questions were pretty standard. They asked me if I had questions. Of course I did but, after accepting job, I realized that their responsed were lies.
Interview Question – Nothing really. The questions were pretty standard. I felt like it didn't matter what I said as long as I was interested, they were too. Almost too eager because it is a difficult place to work. i would not recommend it on my worst enemy. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Horrible. They offered 2 weeks of vacation and I was requesting 3 as that was what I was walking away from. I was told that corporate said no that 2 was the maximum, and then I find out that they gave 2 other people 3 when they requested. The benefit package was a big lie. I was told a price of $90 every 2 weeks for a family and it was actually $360 for some crappy benefits.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Simmons Bedding.
Interview Details – Applied for the position on line. Received an email from the hiring manager very quickly (within the hour). Hiring Mgr had a few questions based upon background. Hiring Mgr asked for me to confirm with him the following week when the in person interview would be set up.
Upon calling the hiring mgr I was confirmed for the date and time. I knew that there were 3 other canididates beside myself.
I then recieved an email from the HR Mgr indicating my scheduled interview time. The fact that they use the STAR Interview Process was emphasized to me several times. I was informed that I would be meeting with the hiring mgr and the director of sales for the region.
My interview consisted of 4 parts, information about my background and experience, information about the job opportunity, my questions related to the job, overall company questions. The whole structure felt like the least organic or natural interview I have ever been a part of.
The final wrap up was the most awkward in my opinion. The director of sales who seem preoccupied through most of the interview concluded our time together with whether I was a fan of both our football and basketball pro sports teams. I answered the questions the honest, yes and no (teams respectively). It may have been pure curiousity, but it felt like he was digging for something deeper. My knowledge of athletics, my sexuality (I'm a male, stereotypically gay men do not know about sports). Which I am gay, but had no reason to disclose that in an interview process. It was an awkward way to wrap up interview an interview process in my opinion.
Finally, also odd was that the HR Mgr was on conference call in the room throughout the interview process, they would refer to him for any questions, yet he did not ask one.
