    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Furniture Row (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It's very detailed and thorough. They want to get to know you on a more personal level to understand your personality and lifestyle. The interview felt more like a conversation and made me feel less nervous. There is a second interview with upper management and that was more formal but in the end they just wanted to get to know me.

    3 interview process. You go through the manager, then assistant, then regional manager. The company wants to learn if you have the personality to sell, and how you are at building relationships in your life. There will also be questions on drug history and driving record. The key thing is just be honest, don't try to hide anything and you will be fine.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Furniture Row in December 2012.

    Interview

    As many have pointed out here, a furniture row interview is weird. After being in management there, I can tell you why. They figure their ideal candidate came from a stable home life and has a positive role model (teacher, parent, sibling, coach, etc.) They will not hire anybody with recent drug use, felonies/jail time or most misdemeanors, and they avoid people with backgrounds in bars and car sales. The interview is indeed lengthy, because they want to watch you. They believe if you are answering a question and your eyes move left then it suggests you're lying. No joke. The owner has relatives in some gvt intelligence agency and they claim that's where this practice originates. They will not check previous employers and I never heard of anyone who had to drug test, but if you are hired and they later discover dishonesty during the hiring phase, you may be dismissed. Overall, though, the probing personal questions are not difficult to answer unless you came in all psyched for the usual interview stuff like 'what's your greatest strength'.
