I was recently hired by the tile shop on May 8th 2014. I had initially interviewed for an assistant position in the North Austin store two weeks prior. I seen an opening on this very site for it. I went to their (The Tile Shop) web page and clicked on careers and submitted my application along with my resume and cover letter. I received a call 3 days later, interviewed and at the time it was unfortunate that I was passed over. I received a phone call on May 8th and was interviewed by the Regional Warehouse Manager and Store Manager for the South Austin store Warehouse Manager position that he had available. I answered all questions to the best of my knowledge and ability; he liked me the Store Manager liked me, I started that day at 2:30 pm and worked unloading/loading a 55 foot trailer for delivery and returns until 7:10pm.
The best advice I can give you is to be a straight shooter and have a CLEAN criminal record. Be motivated, false motivation may work with other places, but it won't cut it here. Be prepared to work 10 hour days at least 5 days a week minimum. This company is a company that you WILL move up in if you handle your business. Last but not least, be yourself in the interview.
