    Interview

    The DSW interview process was quick, timely, and super professional. After applying for the position on DSW.com, I was called within a week to set up an interview. My first interview included a face-to-face interview with one of the MOD's who asked me a number of questions to figure out my interests. A few days after the first interview, I was asked to attend a second interview with the Store Manager. The Store Manager broke down everything that goes on within the store on a daily basis. A couple days after that interview, I was offered the position.

    Super easy and simple. It was a one on one interview and only lasted about 10 minutes altogether. He only asked about 2 questions, and mostly talked about the company itself and its goals/values. Was hired right then and there and given an starting wage. I did not negotiate, as it was good and above minimum wage. overall a very positive experience.
