    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at P.C. Richard & Son (Farmingdale, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application online, got a call two days later for an in-person interview at their corporate HQ in Farmingdale.

    The interview I thought went well, I met with multiple managers and they all seemed to be really receptive to me and my experience. They said they would have to wait on their director to return from vacation before moving on to the next step. Almost a month later and two follow up emails after, I heard nothing from the organization. I moved along with my search for other opportunities.

    A month later, I received snail mail from their HR department about not being able to be offered employment. Please just send an email, it saves people so much more time and not having to wait for a response is best. Especially when it is a disappointing rejection letter rife with grammar errors.

    All in all, the interview was pleasant and great, the atmosphere and corporate culture seemed great, but their HR processes and hiring process needs some serious refinement and more deference to the candidates applying and not wasting their time as well as your own.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions about my resume, no formal interview questionnaire, was based off the content of my resume. Things such as projects that I completed at the organizations I was part of and my skills and experiences in software.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I filled out an application in the store and received a call from the main headquarters for an interview. I met with their senior sales trainer who greeted me, told me about the hours, weekends, training, etc. Then he asked me a bunch of questions about myself and what my goals were, and why I wanted to work for the company. After I answered his questions, he told me all about the company and the job. He was passionate about the company, enthusiastic, and very thorough. After I met with him, I did a quiz, then met with another trainer who asked similar questions and was equally enthusiastic. A few days later I got the call to be hired and they made me feel great!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Draw vs. commission was standard. No negotiation because they explained to me that I write my own paycheck.
