hiring process was fairly easy, they are willing to train people on registers and customer service. you end up spending most of the day asking people is they want bags, greeting them, and making sure that the shoe displays are organized.

    Interview Details

    I went in and handed in my application directly to the manager. I got a call back the next day telling me I had an interview. It ended up being a group interview which was good because you could feed off of other peoples answers and they asked questions like "whats your favorite shoe brand and why" and then had you go out on the floor and interact with customers.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, called for a follow-up and called back a month later for an interview. It was my first interview ever and was really nervous, so I don't think I did very well. Got an email a few days later saying they were pursuing other applicants. Make sure you know what their core values are and be sure to have some situational answers prepared

    I applied online – interviewed at DSW.

    Interview Details

    Applied and the manager called me a couple of days later and set up an interview. Only had one interview and then was notified that I got the job not long after and was asked to come in for orientation. Overall the interview and the interview process were both very laid back and short, but that could be just because of the manager I was dealing with as he is generally very laid back compared to others. Not very hard questions, mostly behavioral/situational and asking you about yourself and what you like to do.

    Make sure to look up the four DSW values because they will probably ask you about them. My manager asked what they were and what they meant to me, so be able to explain them if they should ask. They are Passion, Accountability, Collaboration, and Humility.

    No negotiation, but could be because it was my first real job so I didn't attempt to negotiate.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, went into the store and introduced myself to the manager. Within the next couple of days I was called to schedule an interview. There are 2 interviews - one with the hiring manager and one with the store manager. They were each close to an hour long. I was asked about the store values and to explain what they meant to me, and to provide examples of times when I felt like I showed those qualities. I was also asked my favorite types/brands of shoes.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DSW in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Complete BS taking the extensive assessment test. I wasn't even able to complete the times one. 10 minutes is far to short of a time period to be able to take in each question and find the correct answer. All this for a part time store job is ludicrous and not cost effective. I've had 9 years retail experience and could be a proven asset but because I can't "pass" an assessment test I can't qualify for an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The times assessment test was way to complex to think and finish all the questions.   Answer Question
