    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pella (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2013.

    Interview

    It is a 3 step process. First interview is human resources on phone for a hr and then face to face " coffee shop" that was about 45 minutes with sales manager. Hr then called me same day to setup board interview which is with owner and 3 managers. My interview lasted about 1 hour. Overkill if you ask me to sell windows for a living. I didn't get a offer which was a bit shocking since I do have 10 years experience in home improvement sales, my guess is they want a person with college degree, guess I will never know since pella won't respond to me via email
