    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Empire Today (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process began with a phone interview. Standard questions regarding experience and comfort with outside, commission only sales. Details were given regarding the work schedule and the in-person interview as well as requirements for the job including training. The in-person interview was pleasant and pretty easy with the work and training schedule, compensation plan, and need for a LLC covered.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Empire Today (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    1:1 with manager. The company has massive turn over and will hire largely anyone on the presumption of "churn and burn". If you can pass a background screen and drug test and graduated high school you should be good to go largely. It's a numbers game to them.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northlake, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Empire Today (Northlake, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly from the recruiter via Indeed, phone screen with him and did an interview with the manager and admin specialist- both were cool and easy Interview . I enjoyed the lighting round questions - maybe that was the behavioral questions as stated that I would be asked?
    Location was eh for me especially when trucks are backing up or about to when you try to enter only to have to turn around to convenience them to get into the tight one way parking lot. Receptionist wasn't exactly enthusiastic or as professional , but was decent. I already didn't want the job once I got to the parking lot when I arrived , but decided to go do the interview anyways which ended up being an easy going one. But never received a courtesy notice that I wasn't selected for the position , as like other companies nowadays even after you had to get out of work early and hike a commute to it.

    Web Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Empire Today.

    Interview

    Pretty easy. Got a voice mail asking to schedule a time for a phone interview. On the phone interview asked: what you know about Empire Carpet; reviewed the job description and my resume; point-blanked, asked my salary history (ouch); gave a chance for me to ask any questions about the position.

    After the phone interview, asked if I'd be willing to do a take home project where I had to redesign the company's website header and footer in the next day or two.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Empire Today (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was called for what should have been a phone screen, only asked if I was still interested & my acceptable pay range. I was then asked about an interview for the the very next day, I let her know I was not available until Friday, I could however have a Skype or FaceTime interview with her. She said "it's not that serious" we can do a phone interview tomorrow 8:30am. Never sent a phone interview confirmation email either, which was bad because later after I'd talked with her a appointment cancelled & I could have made an in person interview the next day.

    Never called,no email nothing. Very disrespectful of my time & now I wouldn't even consider them as a serious employer due to her unprofessional attitude & conduct.
