    Materials Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with HR manager; subsequent phone screen with hiring manager. Both were extensive interviews that took a fair amount of time and preparation. I was rejected rather brusquely in a manner that I think is uncalled for, despite my experience and contribution (helped them to develop a baseline of knowledge). Also don't think they warmed to the fact that I'm a veteran.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy.

    Interview

    It was rather easy, basically just go in and be honest about yourself. Nothing out of the ordinary. It was an in person interview, they said that they do not like to do interviews over the phone because they aren't as personable.

    Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy (Morrisville, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    15 minute screen by the HR manager. Then invited in for an in person interview with, again, the HR manager and the district manager (market manager). They interviewed me together. Lasted about 2+ hours on one of the couches in their (now my) store. Very laid back. The HR manager definitely asked more structured corporate questions, but none you're not used to. I could tell the district manager was more focused on my personality. They do not ask you to sell a pen or the ridiculous "tell me a time when you had a difficult customer..", nor where do I see myself in 5 years (though I kind of answered it anyway). They were fun, we laughed a lot, they had like 3 other interviews after me, one waiting in plain sight.
