    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roseville, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oreck (Roseville, MN) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Very low key. It was informal. I was presentable, but for a job fixing vacuums, was right to not show up dressed in a suit or anything like that. If interviewing for a sales or management position, however, I suggest at least casual business attire.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked some very basic thing about my work ethic, my experience with repair, and my experience with customer service.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oreck (Cookeville, TN) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Oreck sounds like a good place to work. Oreck is one of the few vacuum cleaner / home small appliance companies that have manufacturing in the US. The people who interviewed me were nice and punctual. The questions they asked were reasonable. They had some comments about me being overqualified for the position, since they were looking for an entry level engineer.

    Inbound Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oreck (Cookeville, TN) in August 2011.

    Interview

    All hiring and applications are done on the Internet like most companies prefer now. The process was pretty simple, upload your resume, fill out your work history and put down references. If interested the company will schedule a phone interview and evaluate you over the phone. If this goes well there will be in person interview with one person from the floor and a manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are all relevant but if your going into sales, you will probably get the " I am your customer and I want you to sell me this pen" scenario.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really is no negotiation on salary you get minimum wage plus commission. But if you do well you can make $60,000 to $80'000. If you do extremely well.
