We were mentioned in a great article in the New York Times this morning that showcases how the pandemic has sparked higher demand on products and the impact it’s has had on the ports across the US. "...the pandemic has been a chance to reimagine their homes. Bob’s Discount Furniture, a national chain of 140 stores, has never been busier with the biggest demand for living-room sets, including sofas and sectionals, followed by bedroom sets. “With the increased time at home, people are craving comfort,” said Carol Glaser, the company’s chief merchandising officer. “Furniture is the comfort food of the home.”"

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bob's Discount Furniture (Riverside, CA) in Jan 2021

    Interview

    It was lengthy but really in depth and really helps show you if you're built for the position or not. Mine was a 3 step process. Video recording, phone call, and in person.
    Interview

    What previous sales experience you have, if you have any. What you'd bring to the table if you have any or none.
