    Graphic Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Standard TV and Appliance (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through Glassdoor.com, scheduled an interview fairly quickly. Saw the company's samples to look over - had to search for the email because my server marked it as 'spam.' Interviewer was very negative about company, benefits and the environment as a whole. A skills review was optional. It was worded "if you have time, would you like to perform." Major printer issues within the office space. I walked out of the business and knew if they offered me the position, I would turn it down.

    General Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Standard TV and Appliance.

    Interview

    Great experience speaking with the sourcer and recruiter (outsourced). They were very professional and my candidate experience was good...until my interview with the CEO.

    I have read multiple reviews complaining of the long-winded nature of office meetings and sales meetings but nothing could prepare me for this.

    Close to 3 hours having a "conversation" with a man who clearly enjoys hearing his own voice more than anyone else's. Not a lot of value in the type of questions I was asked and more than anything, I was subject to a history lesson on the company and a 3 hour infomercial on how he's successful in spite of his employees.

    Very few times in my professional career I have met a CEO who expresses himself so poorly when talking about the people that make him his money. Absolutely ZERO personal responsibility for the failures (or challenges) of the company and at the same time takes complete credit for its success.

    I am an extremely experienced turnaround executive but I have my doubts as to whether someone can actually correct the course for this company.

    I feel like I dodged a bullet.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Standard TV and Appliance in March 2016.

    Interview

    No phone interview. First interview is on site. They didn't tell you how many cycles of interviews they have. Just asked to go their office. The accountant manager is very rude.

    Thank you for taking the time to review us. However, we weren’t interviewing for an accounting position during that time. Also, our company doesn’t use SAP. Best of luck in your job search.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Standard TV and Appliance (Winston-Salem, NC) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Flew me to corporate office after initial phone interview. Met with Supervisor and went through a formal interview that became more relaxed. It was clear within the first 20 minutes that I would gel with the department and it would be a great fit.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Standard TV and Appliance (Portland, OR) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Usually there are two interviews. The first one with a store manager, the second with either the general manager or the HR dept or both. They used to be very picky but they have lowered the standards. They are hiring more people that would be happy with an hourly wage. There is very little in the way of training, even if they say they will train you. Usually the salesmen just help the new people out.

    Negotiation

    You cannot negotiate. The commission structure is what it is and they keep cutting it down.
