    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Art Van Furniture in April 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then in person with Human Resources Manager, followed by in person interview with Regional Sales Manager, lastly final interview with the V.P. of Sales. This can be shortened, they often try to get the HR manager and Regional Manager together to consolidate the interview process. They found me online and contacted me.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Art Van Furniture (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied with resume through web portal. Received a call within the week and scheduled a personal interview a few days later. When I arrived for the interview, I had to fill out a paper application. The GM asked me a couple softball questions, then gave me an hour to accessorize a room display. After this, I found out that they are only offering $10.80 per hour for this position and it's non-negotiable. I wish I had spent my afternoon doing something else.

    Position pay for visual merchandisers is based upon skill and ability. This may have been what the store wanted to offer this candidate for the position, but there are opportunities to make more.

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided not to go with job because I was concerned about the commission system that was set up. It seemed it would be very difficult to achieve the income that I desired without putting in long hours. I have a family and I was not willing to sacrifice them inorder to achieve the income.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Art Van Furniture (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    Called and asked if I was interested. Was then asked to come in and interview. Arrived fifteen minutes early and then had to sit and wait for over an hour to be interviewed. He asked a few questions off of a sheet with no personality. He cut off my answers then started talking about the position. I talked less than 10% of the time in the interview. I was then asked to wait for another interview and sat for another hour. The second manager came out and was a bit of a conceited jerk. Worst interview ever.
