    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sleep Number by Select Comfort in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview for the sales rep position was very relaxed, and the interviewer did have scripted questionsthat were asked - example - Tell me about a time when you had to get creative to make a sale, how do you handle stress, tell me about a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer, co-worker, boss, tell me your greatest strengths and weaknesses, how comfortable are you with opening or closing a store by yourself, etc. Store manager and a partner store manager were both present - interviews were done 1:1, one at a time. District manager interview was scheduled the following day.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sleep Number by Select Comfort in May 2007.

    Interview Details

    Standard S.T.A.R questions (Situation, Task, Action, Result) "Tell me about a time when you had a difficult customer"

    When you apply, there is a diagnostic. Then a call from the Store Manager, with basic questions asking why you would want to join the company. One-on-one with the SM, then a 2nd interview with DM. SM asks you S.T.A.R questions, DM's interview is fairly conversational, regarding previous job experiences. Easy interview process, presentation is not required.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sleep Number by Select Comfort.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. Basically starts with a very brief overview of what they do (sell Sleep Number beds). Then asks a series of questions such as have you sold before, are you ok with commission, etc. Then they ask you if you are ok with working nights and weekends or if your ok making $9 per hour. Don't answer with 'potentially' or they won't move forward with you. I answered that I would potentially be ok with working weekends (haven't in 12 years), the interviewer got a little sketchy with me. My explanation was that I am accustomed to working 9-5 M-F and earning over $50K, so to say potentially prior to knowing any specifics of the job shouldn't merit such a one sided response.
