    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Chandler, AZ) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a basic phone interview within a few days. Set up an interview for the following week. Got a call asking to push it up to this week. Went in to my interview. Suit, tie, clean shaven and resume. The person who was suppose to interview me didn't show up. Someone else did instead. The interview was literally 5 minutes. Just quickly going over the position and that was about it. I was cool with this since he even said I would be great for the position and should hear back the next day. I didn't hear back the next day. I didn't hear anything for a week. I contacted the recruiter who took a few days to contact me back to state she was on vacation. The next day get a thanks but no thanks email. Now the 5 minute interview was a complete waste of my time, especially the nerves leading up to the interview for a 5 minute interview. Very unprofessional. I spent hours doing my research and preparing for S.T.A.R. base answers and questions just for 5 minutes going over what the recruiter went over about and to be lead on that I had the job.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salem, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Salem, OR) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I didn't make it very far in the interview process, because I'm not willing to be required to work more than 40 hours per week without getting paid overtime, and I'm not willing to be itinerant. I just didn't feel Mattress Firm was very respectful of its employees, and I did feel the work environment was NOT conducive to a healthy work-life balance. I withdrew from the process.

    Interview Questions

    • We work a minimum of 46 ours each week and sometimes more than 50, and we don't pay overtime. Are you okay with that?   1 Answer
