    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Tar Heel Basement Systems full-time


    Creative work space, open management, good pay


    highs and lows of a seasonal business should already be budgeted for at the start of the year.

    Advice to Management

    maintain positive approaches with employees, the rest of the industry leads with fear and threats. As long as you continue to lead positively you can have the best employees in the industry.

    Service Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winston-Salem, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Tar Heel Basement Systems (Winston-Salem, NC) in January 2014.


    The interview process started with a phone call responding to my application that I had submitted a few days earlier. During this phone call they asked a few questions about me and then set up the first interview which was scheduled for a couple of days later. I was interviewed by three different managers (panel style) and it was a very relaxed setting. They told me that they would give me a call to let me know something. The next day they called back and asked if would come in again for a second interview. When I came in for the second interview they gave me a tour of the building and offered me the job! We discussed compensation and filled out paperwork then discussed a start date. I worked a two week notice at my (then) current job and started at TarHeel on Feb 18th 2014!

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted me to tell them about a time that I had to deal with an unhappy customer and how I resolved the situation.   1 Answer


    I didn't really have anything to negotiate. It was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.
