    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers (Bellingham, WA).

    Interview

    Applied on line and received a call an hour later. The man was very informative of all duties and benefits of job, however position open was local and would have to drive 2 hrs away to have an in person interview. I was quite upset they couldn't send a recruiter to the area they wanted a sales associate and once hired then would be willing to travel the 2 hrs for the 4 week training, so I declined the chance to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Having to drive 2 hours away from where job was offered!   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sleep Train Mattress Centers (Kent, WA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Long, drawn out exhausting experience that seems to never end. Who can make a decision here? They interview from a sheet of canned questions that are often inane and have little real life meaning. How would you change the world. Its a mattress for goodness sake! I left there knowing I did not want to be a part of this company.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you sell a pencil to someone who only wants a pen? What? How do you pound a circle into a square peg? Do you sell customers what they dont want?   1 Answer
