    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lafayette, LA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Lafayette, LA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    At first, I thought the interview process was going smooth. I had an interview scheduled and everything. While doing my research before going on interview, i came across other saying that they thought, just as I did, that they were going to interview for assistant manager position. It was not til there interview came up that they were told that Rooms To Go do not hire external managers and that it was really a sales spot that you are interviewing for. After seeing this, I proceeded to call the General Manager that i was suppose to interview and he confirmed what I had read. With that being said, unless you want a regular commission job, do not waste your time like i did preparing for the interview.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nash, TN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Nash, TN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position of Assistant Store Manager posted on Indeed for the Rivergate / Madison TN location.

    Called about 1 week later and scheduled to meet with PERSON A. Went down to Brentwood and was led to a couch to sit down and have an interview and it lasted a little over 2 hours. He had my resume and we discussed the Store Manager position and my previous 15 years management experience and what I could bring to the table and what they were looking for in the position.

    He said that I was the only person he had interviewed so far that he felt comfortable taking to his boss ( PERSON C). I left the store after 2 1/2 hours and received a call about 15 minutes later stating he wanted me to meet with PERSON B.

    Drove up to Rivergate and sat down with PERSON B and that interview lasted a little over 1 hour, where we discussed prior management experience, how they were impressed by the qualifications and positions I had held etc. Talked in depth about the assistant store management position and what he was looking for.

    The following day I was contacted via phone again that I needed to speak with PERSON C back at the Rivergate location a little over a week later.

    Showed up for the interview and this guy was over 45 mins late to kick things off. Sat down with the PERSON A and PERSON C and literally within minutes he was pitching the idea about the great benefits of just being a retail associate, and how they got so much time off...made so much more money, didn't have to float between stores ( Rivergate, Brentwood, and soon Murfeesboro ). This interview ended after less than 15 mins on the final pitch about "What would you think about being a retail associate?"

    Was told a decision would be made the following day and that if I received a call then I got the job, and if I didn't hear back by the next night, they were moving forward with someone else.

    Called back the next day and was told " Congratulations, I was just calling to let you know we have decided to move forward with your employment with Rooms to Go, we would love to have you come aboard the Rivergate location as a Sales Associate,

    ..dead silence on my end...

    "Now I know its not what we ever talked about previously"....

    Told him that I do not think it would be in my best interest to accept that offer, and immediately started to ask why the deception.

    Before I could even get 1 question out, he hung up on me.

    I did some research following this, and it seems this is a tactic used at all Rooms to Go locations and its very deceitful and dishonest to waste any potential employees time with this foolishness. Stop bringing in career managers with 10-20+ years experience and subjecting them to 3 rounds of interviews to offer them a basic retail associate job.

    The words PERSON 3 stressed in my 3rd interview was Trust and Honesty, Trust and Honesty is the core to Rooms to Go.

    A word to you Rooms to Go.....If you value Trust and Honesty as much as it was stressed in my 3rd interview, Id suggest you look in the mirror and stop the lying and dishonesty that you perpetuate by being deceitful in the interview process. If you are hiring for a sales associate, then post those jobs and interview those people. Don't post management jobs with zero intention of hiring anyone just to try to con them into entry level positions.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Brookshire, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Met first with the General Manager then a second meeting with a Sales Manager. The time between interview and and preliminary offer is fine. It only took a matter of days between the two meetings then set up a time to take the drug test which I did July 5th. Still waiting, and when I followed up was told it's up to HR to finish. Seems strange that they like me but there's a hold up. I respect that there are checks and balances and being it's summer people in charge may be on vacation... that's what I chalked it up to. HOWEVER, if you're single, on your own and don't have at LEAST a 2 month's worth of savings for ALL of your bills to get paid during the wait...don't apply unemployed because the wait is mind numbing. (As of today, I am still waiting on final approval).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The meeting was a little late however its a sales environment so I understood. The posting stated available position but I was told there were no available positions at the time. I inquired a little more as to why I was being interviewed and was told its because I seemed to be a good candidate for a store opening at a later date. The interview was pretty normal.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rooms To Go (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Went through 3 phone screens and had an in person interview with the HR recruiter and the hiring manager. Both were very pleasant and informative. The interview was extensive in length and we basically discussed resume information and past work/internship experience. The most important aspect they seemed to be looking for was ability to work in a corporate environment and adapt to that quickly.
