    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bench Craft Company (Portland, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional, concise and the deciding factor as to why I chose Bench Craft. I interviewed with Christian, one of the top recruiters at the company who was flexible and accommodating to my existing schedule. He set expectations as to what is needed to be successful at the company. He also discussed the culture and management style which represents a team effort where everyone wants to help each other and support one another no matter seniority. I was also given a tour of the different departments and could see and feel the company working as a whole. I would highly recommend Bench Craft Company if you're looking to continue your sales career or even wanting to break into sales.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bench Craft Company (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    Talked on the phone and asked about my sales experience. Set up an in person interview and summary of the job. Asked me if I was willing to make 200 phones calls a day and I said I was. Was told I would be called later that day about the job. I was called later that day I'm pretty sure I had the job until he asked if I had any questions in which I didn't but I felt obliged to ask some questions. I asked a couple easy questions and then he said the job was still open and would get back to me if they were still interested and hung up. Make sure to ask good questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bench Craft Company (Tampa, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Brief easy interview! Results are what they are looking for just like any sales job! You have to produce results to stay. That's how it should be though. I have been here two weeks and can say the most important thing is to ask great questions, always ask for help in the beginning. People there are nice and the one's that have been there for a while will go the extra mile but only if you apply what they say immediately and work hard and never give up!

    Interview

    They sell you on the place and tell you alot of lies. The job is extremely low paying and most people will never earn commission. The company also has no loyalty and will fire you so quickly even though they provide no training. They sit you with a representative to listen for 10 minutes and then hire anyone who wants the job. Chances are you won't make it past a week.

    Interview

    The Sales manager Lawerence made it sound like the position was for elite sales people. He gave me a week to think about it. He said it was a meat and potatoes kind a job but he shold have said you have to have the phone glued to your ear at all times and put up a deal a day.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bench Craft Company (Arlington, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Lauren interviewed me. Nice girl, attractive, engaging, timely. The recruiters job is totally and absolutely pitching you on the job and setting unrealistic expectations. If they take you to the back to meet with the office manager(s) and take a little tour, you're hired. They try to make you think you're a special case, and they strongly consider you before giving the final approval, but I'm %99 sure it's all just BS to try and motivate employees. Lying/misleading/misrepresenting is something that almost everybody working for Benchcraft seems to be 'ok' with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bench Craft Company (Raleigh, NC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Sent resume in from a Craigslist advertisement. Was called in a week later, sat down with two of the three managers that were there. For about 40 minutes. They called me back in the next day and wanted me to come in and talk to Edward the sales manager and I told them I was going to stick where I was as I am currently employed. My gut feeling is that this company is not customer focused and just focused on getting the next $375 deal. Plus it didnt help seeing all of the negative reviews online from Yelp and other review sites from customers, it just validated what I was thinking. Also, Kevin mentioned there is a lot of "pressure" at this job and wants people to be able to handle it. In my opinion that just means you have someone yelling at you over your shoulder to close deals. I am guessing this is a 45-50k a year job for the few who stick around, you might have people make more than that.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most relevant sales experience that I have? Outside of that it was just a bunch of general questions regarding my background. It didnt seem like they were interested in my experience, just wanted to see what kind of person I was.   1 Answer
