    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The process took less than a week. Immediately, I could tell the Recruiter was fake. She was not personable at all, and doesn't represent your company well. She rushed the interview, and made you feel like she wasn't going to present you to the Hiring Manager. Too bad, because I know I would have shined had she given me a chance to meet the Hiring Manager.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Mattress Firm (Hamilton, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Total waste of time was phone interviewed by someone in Texas that interview went well and the person told me I should be hearing from the hiring manager (another guy from Texas, I’m in NJ by the way) in a few days. I heard from him alright in the form of a rejection e-mail. It later turned out that Mattress Firm never even had a location in my area so I was basically interviewed for and rejected from a position that didn’t even exist.
