    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initially, you will be contacted by a recruiter via email. You will schedule a time for a phone interview that will occur in the next few weeks. Then, (if the recruiter is having a bad day/you do not say EXACTLY what they want to hear/literally do not have YEARS of experience from every bullet point describing the job detail/requirement) you will be told how your not qualified for the job. Honestly, it was a borderline insulting experience. I have knowledge of the industry and an internal referrals on my side, but I was told I did not meet the requirements. I went from discussing my experience and university degrees (plural) for a job with a great salary to being told "I would fit" this job criteria that paid $14/hr (no offense). I should have hanged up the phone since it was a waste of my/her time but did not since I'm a nice guy. Instead, I listened to why I am not qualified by someone who has never met me nor got my name correct when she called...yeah.

    Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Ashley Furniture.

    Interview

    Ashley Furniture approached me about this position. I didn't approach them because I never saw a posted position for it. After talking with the hiring manager it sounded like something I would be interested in so I agreed to go to their office and meet the rest of the team.

    We scheduled an interview and I was able to shuffle things around at my current job to make it happen. I went to the office and waited for someone to come get me, for OVER AN HOUR! Come to found out they forgot I was there and for some reason the interview was set up for after hours so the receptionist left soon after I arrived.

    I contacted the HR person who apologized and she said I should just leave because she couldn't get in touch with anyone. The HR person then reached back out a few days later to reschedule the interview. Well, against my better judgement I sent her my availability and shuffled things around at work again.

    This time they remembered I was there and came and got me. I thought the interview went well, they talked about future plans for the department and the conversation just flowed. The hiring manager even gave me the download on the next couple of people he'd like me to meet with and said they'd be in touch to schedule those interviews.

    A few days went by and I did hear anything back and since they were a little slow on communication I decided to be proactive and send the HR person my next availability. She said she'd have to talk to the hiring manger and would get back to me, but I got the impression the hiring manager never said a word to her about bringing my back in.

    A few more days went by and I finally heard back. They decided to go with another candidate.

    Overall the interview process was frustrating and an overall waste of my time. I should have figured it would be since they didn't even have a written job description for the position so they probably didn't even have a clear idea of what they were looking for.

    Plus, they didn't even validate my parking! So I had to pay for parking with nothing to show for it. Ugh!

    Interview

    Two phone interviews. Great experience because it allowed me to be flexible around my schedule. Was pretty normal questions. Mostly behavior questions rather than analytical questions.

    One with HR then one with a manager.
