    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.

I was asked a few things about my background, such as past jobs, availability and skill set. I was asked very basic questions. After my in person interview i was sent an email confirming i had got the job and had to do a the emailed package and take a drug test.

    I applied online and got a call a couple of weeks later. The first interview was pretty easy and consisted of behavioral questions. The second interview (if you make it) is more intense and is with the store manager. Still waiting to hear back.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    I met with the district supervisor and then did a telephone interview with another district supervisor. The interviews were very laid back. The questions were mostly basic but there were some that really challenged me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DSW (Carle Place, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the next day saying that I got an interview. I had a 1 on 1 interview with one of the managers in a back room. It was shockingly short. I got there at 5:17 and I was out of there before 5:30. As soon as we sat down the first thing he said was, "I am out of here at 6pm thank god." He asked me only three questions before he just cut to the chase and said well it comes down to availability. When I left he said we will call you if we move forward. Honestly I don't think I will accept the job if I get it. He let me know up front that there would be weeks I would only get 4 hours and some where i got 20.
