    Work on most holidays but you get accustomed to the schedule. The Managers makes it fun with contests and bringing in lunch.

    Design Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bassett Furniture (Arlington, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to a position I saw on their website. Was called the following morning and called for an interview in store. The interview in store was very casual, conducted perched on a sofa. Everyone seemed very friendly. Was told to go home and take a "personality test". The test was part SAT type verbal/math questions and part personality quiz.
    I had been told that I would be contacted 1 week after the interview. I didn't hear back for 2 weeks and called the store. I was told that I had "failed" the test.
