    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was informal but courteous and polite. I was contacted very soon after submission of my resume, a phone interview was set for the same week. Due to scheduling, the interviewer rescheduled to an in person panel interview within a week. I was impressed by the professionalism in return of correspondence and flexibility of scheduling.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills.

    Interview

    It went quickly. They asked basic questions regarding work experience. We ended up speaking more so about things on a personal level VS direct interview questions. Overall the interview process was very laid back which I think fit in line with Traeger's company culture at the time.

    Event Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills (Sugar House, UT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview was great and professional. After the phone interview, I had an interview in person. Didn't seem to care about all of the time and effort I had taken to apply, research, and prepare for the interview. Person couldn't focus on the interview and frequently was looking over my shoulder at what was going on behind me, at the phone, and at the ceiling vent declaring, "it is hot in here". I believe this is a great company, but they need to train hiring managers on how to interview individuals. I was quite offended and knew I was not going to get the job. I do not know if I was just part of the necessary process to complete the hire legally, but did not feel like I was treated fairly.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you feel air coming out of the vent? It is hot in here.   1 Answer

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied for two managerial roles. After months, I still haven't received so much as a "no thanks". I reached out to a recruiter a few weeks ago to speak about the status of the applications, work environment, fit, etc and received no response. Appallingly unprofessional. I respect and value myself as a candidate and as such, wont be applying again with an organization that lacks the gumption to professionally deal with candidates.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orem, UT
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    1. Phone interview
    2. Video interview in which you are pitching the grills
    3. "Audition" for the position which is really three days of unpaid training and two days of travel, you will fly in on a Sunday, train on the pitch and product Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, then fly out on Thursday. The shuttle picks you up at 7:30 a.m. to take you to the corporate office to learn and practice the rest of the pitch until 5:00 p.m. or later, back to the hotel on the shuttle for more "optional" training. On the third day you will perform your pitch on video.

    The phone interview questions were easy and nothing really stood out. The most difficult part of the interview process is the hours and days you are required to give up without pay or an offer of employment.
