    Current Employee - Business Development Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Herman Miller full-time for more than 5 years


    Approachable and supportive management, flexible work schedules, supportive and collaborative sales team, substancial 401K contributions, supportive and encouraging of educational pursuits and professional development


    Spend a lot of time with data entry, reporting which gets in the way of selling. Not a great on-boarding program for new employees....must be self-sufficient.

    Positive Outlook

    SMB Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Herman Miller.

    Interview Details

    1 Phone interview with recruiter with Toby, who is extremely nice, and the interview will sail through. It's not a real interview.
    2 Phone interview with Regional Sales Director, where you will get general questions about what skills you have and what you think it takes to succeed, how you have been successful in the past, etc.
    3 Regional Sales Director invites you to meet personally, and continues on same line of questioning.
    4 Create a presentation for the National Sales Director, VP of Sales, and a couple coworkers to demonstrate basic presentation skills and answer a few more general questions.

    Interview process is in general very easy, the questions did not probe very deep, and they generally see you in a more positive and credible light than many other interviewers.

    Negotiation Details
    They don't let you negotiate salary, but there is no cap on your commission rates so in hindsight you should be able to squeeze a few more % points.
