    Manager Candidate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Johnson City, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Furniture Row (Johnson City, TN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is extremely long. You must go through three different interviews all about two to three hours long. It's not a extremely difficult interview but it is intense. They tell you they are doing a court ordered background check and they can find anything. I'm not sure if this is true, but I had nothing to hide. They tell you they are looking for people of high integrity.

    Sales Associate/Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Furniture Row.

    Interview

    The manager seemed more concerned with telling me all about himself than learning about me. I was told I would only be there for 30-45 minutes and was there for over 2 hours. The entire process was unprofessional and a waste of my time.

    MCS Candidate IS the Real Interview Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Furniture Row (Columbia, MO) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Three interview if you pass all of them. First two are with assistant and store managers and third is with regional (called an audit). Always go into the store to apply...I am not sure where the online applicants applications are going but I never received them as a store manager to set up interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Lifestyle questions....what makes you tick, pet peeves, family background, who were you in highschool? Honesty, integrity is valued above most all other aspects.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. $600 week for first 6 weeks of training and then you are on your own to sale commission. All employees go through this. They only hire managers from within and with a proven record...typically takes 6 months to become assistant and if you're good you can become a store manager in about a year and a half to 2 years. Honestly, though...$600 week is on average pretty low...they pay you well, I would never complain about that.

    MIT/Sales Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Furniture Row in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very long and extremely invasive. They ask several illegal questions, and get to in depth into your personal life. They have the worst follow up! I was interviewed on a Monday asked to come back the next day for a second interview and was told would be called back later that day to set up the final and third interview. They told me that I should stay around so I hung around town and waited hours. I finally called and was told the regional manager had already left and they would call me in a few days to reschedule the interview. I waited a week and called again to follow up. I was told that the regional manager was out of town but they really wanted to get me in to meet with him and I should call back to follow up in a week. I called again a week later as requested and was told they would call me in two weeks as that is when the regional manager would be back at the location. I think it is absurd to make a candidate have to keep following up and never give updates. It is extremely rude and unprofessional. After the runaround and invasive first two interviews I would not accept a job with this company anyway and will be filing a complaint for the illegal questions which are well documented. There are too many furniture stores around that offer better service. I would not give this company my business again and will make sure that others know about their lack of professionalism as well.

    Interview Questions

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Draper, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Furniture Row (Draper, UT) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Apparently interviewing them is likened unto talking to a police officer or a priest. Felt like I was on an episode of Law and Order. The questions 3 managers asked me wanting me to confess every sin I have ever done. Ridiculous. It is a junk furniture store get over yourselves. I should have forgotten about ever applying here after the first interview. “They try to cloak their questions with “we just want to get to know you better”. My childhood is none of your business. Questions that were asked “Did you come from a broken home?” Pardon? What does that have to do with selling furniture? I was asked my age (not legal) and a various assortment of other illegal questions to ask in an interview. I am disgusted that this company exists.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time that you were ashamed of something. Are your parents married or do you come from a broken home? Are you married? Do you have children?   1 Answer

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Furniture Row in November 2010.

    Interview

    It was an exceptional process. You start interviewing with both the assistant and store managers and get interviewed with the regional if you get passed along. It can be a lengthy interview (2-6 hours) depending on what they want to know from you. They want to know more about you, your personal life, your family and how you grewp up than about what experience you have, its really refreshing.

    There wasnt one, its commission.
