    I have been working at Bob's Discount Furniture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture and atmosphere make it fun to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    I mean retail isn’t for everyone. The holidays and weekends are a must.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bob's Discount Furniture (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Easy, simple questions. More like a conversation. I met with 2 people, interviewed over the phone with 2 more people, then a phone interview with the regional manager.
