    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    First there was a pre-screen telephone interview. The call was basically to ensure eligibility to work in the US, and to make sure any given candidate is worth the time and effort for a face to face interview. Call was 15-20 minutes.
    The following week I received an invitation to interview in person.
        The face to face interview was held in the territory where potential candidates would be working. The interview consisted of standard questions about relocating, previous experience, related knowledge and skill sets. I would not say the interview was "lax"; though it was not too rigorous. Personally, I enjoyed the open nature or style of the interview, as it allowed me as a candidate to really get a feel for the company & the specifics of the jod itself, as well. I found the individuals interviewing me to be authentic and sincere. The interview was about an hour long exchange that included both the individual in charge of decision making & another sales person familiar with the territory.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Herman Miller (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, sort of a conversation over the phone.
    Took around 30 minutes.
    I think the person who was in charge of the interview was very inexpert and did not know any information about the company that she worked for. As a candidate I'm allowed to ask question regarding the number of employees in the location to the general culture of the company and she couldn't respond. Among other details, I felt discriminated from the interviewer, our conversation changed given the fact that english is not my first language and other commentaries during our conversation that I do not want to expressed in here.
    Please be careful, sometime companies say that they do not discriminate, but they certainly do.
