    They always ask for previews experiences. Always dress for success. No matter which position your applying. Be very confident. Project yourself like you own the position already.

    There really isn't an interview process for this company. You'll speak with a store manager for a few minutes. It has no format so it's a very casual conversation where your job duties are relayed to you.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Buddy's Home Furnishings in May 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty standard questions, I applied on a Monday got the interview on Wednesday. Has to wait for the manager to get done because the store was busy. i think my patience is what put me over the edge. Because while I was waiting I was assisting customers to the best of my ability being that I already had previous knowledge of the workings of the store.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Buddy's Home Furnishings in June 2011.

    Interview

    Answered email. An appointment for an interview was set up. I interviewed with store manager for about 1.5 hrs. The interview was just about normal thoughts and ideas. Was told what the job consisted of and then offered job. Just be yourself. The biggest misconception was that you were not told how much time would be involved in the actual repossesion of furniture. The store closed at 7:00 pm and there were many times we would finish until close to 10pm. You were paid the overtime, but it did get old. You should take into consideration that you are going to work 50-60 hours with no saturdays off.

    Negotiation

    I was told the starting pay would be $11.00 hr. Your job is going to entail alot of phone calls for collection of past due accounts. Part of the job includes going to the customer house and make collections or pick up the furniture. This can be physically demanding .
