    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nebraska Furniture Mart (The Colony, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Store was opening, so they had a massive job fair. Interview was quick. I believe there was poor planning on how much staffing and especially scheduling which was not fully explained in interview. This led to a huge turnover that unbelievably is still not fixed.

    Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nebraska Furniture Mart (Omaha, NE) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward process. They ask mostly for examples of specific situations and scenarios. However, they almost always know who they want for the job before they even post it (internal transfers only). Management interviews are long, so it ends up being a total waste of time if they already have someone chosen.

    Floor Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frisco, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nebraska Furniture Mart (Frisco, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It is unfortunately that you still have discrimination going on in 2014. But here goes. I went to two different job fair hiring sessions. I applied to 4 different position of which i am qualified for.. I am a seasoned Sales Manager who was looking to apply and start a new career with NFM. Every person I talk to during the steps was trying to steer me away from applying to be a manager which has a base pay of 43k. They repeatedly recommended me to be a sales person on the floor saying it will pay more. I also was told that there were no more management positions available which was far from the truth. And also was told you have to take this long test to even be considered. My thoughts where lady not sure what African Americans you are used to but this one is not dumb. I past the test by the way. This was to much and it was almost a written rule as if they did not want any African Americans in these positions. Have some documentation and a consultant who is closely watching the situation. Not sure if this just happen to me or if there are several other minority's in management who are not given a shot at being a manager but good enough for the straight commission job. Waiting to get interviews 3 other White applicants where after me where put in front of me during the process to be interviewed. I saw a women pull someone aside and he then came to get me and the interview process was a joke and so unprofessional I mean I could tell the guy was just killing time. Talking about sports other stuff and repeatedly asked questions about bad situations like that were all negative. No questions about the success in my jobs only negative. Again in the middle of the interview he started talking about 100% commission sales position while we were suppose to be interviewing for the management positions. Got the we passe on you and choose a better candidate email again. I hope you all get it fixed quick as if this is the way the company is ran I wonder how many people in Nebraska are going or have been through the same. Awaiting the opening day so we can evaluate the ratio.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nebraska Furniture Mart (Kansas City, KS) in January 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was pleasant, boiler plate really, butI was given unrealistic expectations, no one is watching older sales people advance. I was led to believe it was a level playing field.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It was them telling what they pay, take it or leave it.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nebraska Furniture Mart (Omaha, NE).

    After you apply, you take an aptitude test followed by interview with HR. If they like you then you are interviewed by your sales manager. The sales manager will do a "Targeted Selection" interview where they will ask you to recall a situation, followed by the action that you took as well as the outcome. They are looking for specifics and not hypotheticals.
