Self Serve Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at IKEA (Las Vegas, NV) in July 2016.

Interview

The associate interviewing me was ten minutes late. Escorted me into a small room with a lamp, table and chairs, then proceeded to ask me questions about my past experience. Also inquired about how I'd handle irate customers, and about my interest in working for IKEA.

At the end she instructed me to wait for the online background documents, telling me she thought I was a great match for the position.

Two days later I received a rejection email.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at IKEA (Merriam, KS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process is a long unorganized mess. I applied originally in December of 2014. Got a call for an interview in January which went to my voicemail. I must have called back 20 different times. Gave up. Reapplied in late January, got called for an interview and after the interview the background check took over 2 weeks. I also filled out probably 6 availability forms because they kept losing them. I finally started in late march. Which was fine until I found out because of all of this mess, I would miss out on the bonus for the fiscal year of 2015 by about 3 weeks. Very discouraging.
