    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Namco Pools (Manchester, CT).

    Interview

    Informal, with management. I was brought to meet the store manager and he laid out expectations and then we briefly went over my resume. I didn't know much about the pool industry at the time but I was assured as long as I knew how to sell and manage that the information on the industry could be learned easily.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Namco Pools (Danbury, CT) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Met with Human Resources employee and store manager. They asked several questions relating to selling ability and customer service. There really was no emphasis on previous jobs or ability as far as operations and training. I don't believe I was given the total picture of what the job would entail or pay.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Namco Pools (Baltimore, MD) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Saw a job fair ad for the company, when I went in, I was greeted by a store manager. When I inquired about the job fair, I was told, "Yeah, HR never showed up for it, but I can take your resume". After glancing at my resume, and noticing 10 years experience with their much larger competitor, I was pretty much offered a job as a sales associate on the spot.
    After about a month an opening for assistant manager became available at a nearby location. I met with the DM and after a quick discussion of the location and salary, I was offered the promotion.

    Interview Questions

    • There were almost no questions, they asked about my previous job, and why I was no longer with them. Their turnover rate was so high, getting experienced employees was basically an instant hire.   Answer Question
