    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy (Stoughton, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very lazy and unenthusiastic and involved a lot of unintelligent questions, Typical questions such as are you able to work weekends and holidays, do you have open availability and can you vacuum and dust and do you have previous work experience. Nothing too challenging. A monkey could get a job there.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was faster than I expected but polite and professional. Quick easy hiring process. My first paycheck took a long time to reach me based on the pay period so don't depend on it immediately. It was about a month of no income but after that everything evened out.

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

    Interview

    I applied for visual merchandiser but through a series of events I ended up having my resume passed to a GM who interviewed me for sales. Very casual interview, done on the couches in the store, laid back, conversational style. I've never done sales before but I showed I was very personable and driven so they offered me a position. Everyone I have met and interviewed with have been very nice and professional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy (Tucson, AZ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Not very professional. Had me fill out paperwork and conduct a few pre employment tests on a couch in the showroom. I think I intimidated the lady who interviewed with for the job. I come from a auto sales background and have worked many sales gigs in the last 20 years. I felt like I was visiting with my grandma who interviewed me in a recliner in the showroom with customers all around. When I left I new I didn't want to work there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at La-Z-Boy in November 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume for a part-time position with La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery on careerbuilder.com and was notified when the manager had viewed my application via the app. Within a few days I received a phone call from the store manager in my area wanting to set up a time for me to come in and formally apply (fill out an application) and interview for the open position. The manager seemed very flexible about times and days available. We agreed on a time that worked for me so I had a few days to prepare. When I arrived it took about 15-20 minutes to fill out the 4 pages of information they request; the application was pretty standard stuff. Staff members seemed busy, yet courteous. Everyone seemed happy to help. For the interview, the manager took me to a table in the showroom and we sat and discussed my qualifications for about 30 minutes. All questions seemed to be asked from a corporate checklist-style worksheet. Most of the subsequent questions were answered in my previous responses but I was happy to give further examples to keep a good flow of conversation going. I was also prepared to ask questions of my own. The interview was very conversational and in a comfortable setting. I was hired on the spot and we continued to the office where I was introduced to the assistant manager to begin my New Hire Packet. *Always take your ID, Social Security Card and a blank check from your personal checking account (for Direct Deposit paperwork) to any interview.

    Negotiation

    There is no room for negotiation but $10/hour is a decent and competitive wage for part-time work in my area. Unfortunately, the part-time position restricts the maximum number of hours you can work to 25 or less each week.
