    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Havertys (Mobile, AL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was one hour and thirty minutes long maybe but smooth. I went to guest services and was given an application to fill out. After I filled out the application I gave it to the employee at guest services. I was told to wait after the interviewee before me and that only to maybe 10 minutes. The store manager then came and called for me, and I went into his office. The store manager read over my application and ask questions about it. Questions like, why did you leave this company, and why you want to work for this company, where do you see yourself in five years, do you understand the responsibilities and commitment of this job. I answered honestly on my reason why because I have a personal goal of working in Sales and building a successful career. We then went to scenario questions about previous work experiences. After the interview, I ask my interviewer questions like, how long have you been working for the company, why do you enjoy it. (Which is a good thing to always do.) The interviewer then informed me of the pay, hours, and training. It was possible if offered the position that I would have to travel out of state for a week of intense training. The interview was easy you just have to do your research, be confident and, comfortable. I will know the decision in about 2 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Havertys (Charleston, SC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Did assesment online. I usually hate those. Havertys was direct and easy. Got an immediate e-mail saying a Mgr would call me. Got the call within 24 hrs. I am 65 and felt no age descrimination. Store manager was very direct about his style of management and how good the company would be to work for. He asked many questions. Not just the ones below. I would say he gave me a fair consideration. He explained he was writing down my answers and i suppose submitting same to HR or next person up the line? The online assessment was easy. The interview was in alot of ways geared around a team work atmosphere, so that felt good. But some of the questions were very different from what I expected.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Havertys (Dallas, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume online and received a follow-up email from a store manager for an interview.

    Met with the general manager of the location and she was very nice and open about what the position is and how to be successful.

    Moved onto a second interview with the area manager which was sort of the same.

    It was a straight up professional sales interview and hiring process.

     Drug test background check reference check all standard.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Havertys (Pensacola, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on Careerbuilder.com, got an email for the personality test. After that i got a call for an interview the next day. Store manager interview was a bunch of lies to get you to start asap.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were pretty standard. The personality test they make you take determines how many questions. So answer 1 or 5 only on the personality test if you want to work at this horrible place.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Havertys (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The Interview process was very streamlined and easy. You take a word association test/personality test-unsure which testing formatting is used, never seen this type before. But, It was not difficult-took me about one hour.
    GM was very cordial, professional, intelligent and very attentive to what I had to say in response to his questions. All attempts seemed to be made to make me comfortable with the interview process.
    I was called to come back in after approximately 5 days. I met with the GM and a floor mgr, and then was told they wished to begin the paperwork to hire me. All in all, it was a very easy, comfortable and simple process.

    Interview Questions

    • No specific question was difficult. The week long training is very comprehensive, at times repetitive in focus or content being illustrated to new hires, and was for me the most arduous part of the entire process. You receive a ton of information with on the floor "customer/sales person" scenarios used daily...all of which was excellent in teaching how Havertys wants it's employees to greet, interact and lead them towards a close including the protection plan offered. It was, again, a lot of processing mentally and for me, once I got back to my store, all training pretty much ceased. It was hit the floor running with blinders on, so to speak. But, the training is excellent and within a short period of time, I was able to answer most of my own questions without need of co-workers or mgrs.   Answer Question
