    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Closet World (Whittier, CA).

    Interview

    Group presentation to approximately 20 or more applicants in a classroom setting. They explained how great the company was and the expectation of the sales process. Basically the various managers gave us all a sales pitch. Then interviewed us one on one after that. The room was dominated with mostly women and very few men. As a man, I thought that was a bit odd considering this was a home improvement job. I did take about 6 months before they called me from the time I submitted my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • No specific questions just conversation. The manager talked more about the company. I asked a few questions.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Responded by emailing them and got a call 2 days later that sounded like it was someone calling from their house. It sounded very casual and I was encouraged to go meet face to face for an actual interview.

    SALES DESIGNER Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whittier, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Closet World (Whittier, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied directly via email and was called the next day and scheduled the interview. I met with Sr. Sales Manager and was warmly welcomed by several different people in the office. I found the interview to be more of a "sales" presentation. Very descriptive with the commission, the "method" of sale and how sales people are not allowed to deviate from the method. All discounting has to be approved by the manager. He then threw in that the next training was starting in 3 days. Complete news to me, as I am currently working and would have to give notice, not mention that I drove almost 3 hours for the interview. It seemed to me that they churn and burn their sales people like a revolving door. I was only asked one question throughout the hour interview.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Closet World (Whittier, CA).

    Interview

    I had the company install my closets; saw their ad in the Pennysaver and called. They set up an interview with a sales manager. At the interview, the usual questions were asked; I felt that what they really wanted was to get a feel for the type of person I was, my work ethic, adaptability, etc.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation; commission only sales. If the applicant feels that system will work, great. They did explain opportunities for advancement and benefits.

    SALES DESIGNER Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Closet World (San Diego, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone call, mine, leaving a message I was interested in the position. On the return phone call, I spoke with the interviewer and talked about some elements, while we set up the interview.

    I did some research on the company, and there seems to be a high turn over on the job, but there are people who make loads of money, but that is the exception not the rule.

    As the interviewer described it, if you're willing to do what's in the training and follow there pitch, it works, and you make the sales. etc.

    I am interested in helping people, create beautiful spaces not get people to spend money, on a particular kit... etc. but over all, I think the sales are what they are.

    I think that on the onset, this looked like a great opportunity and I believe life is what you make it, but I don't think the job was a good fit for me.

    Closet Designer/Outside Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Closet World (San Ramon, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone and went in for a personal interview. I then was referred on to the person I would be reporting to, however she was located in Southern California, so we only spoke by phone. The product seems to be nice quality, the type of work sounded fun, however the company offers no benefits and the pay is strictly commission.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were really not difficult. They were really just trying to get an idea of how willing I was to follow their specific formula for selling.   1 Answer
