Easy Interview

Application

I applied online – interviewed at DSW (Atlanta, GA).

Interview

I was interviewed by two different locations. I put in back to back, for a span of 9 months. _1st Store I got my first interview call 4 months after putting in. Which was fine, because there was no opening at the time I applied. The manager that was suppose to interview me was not there. He left for launch a couple hours before and never came back. I was left walking around the store. So the assist or second manager finally took it upon herself to interview me. I got asked 5 questions, while standing in the middle of the store. Never got a call back. -2nd Store The second store actually had an opening. Keep in mind this is at least 5 months since my previous interview. I put in and was called within the same month. I was told to come in for an interview same day. I called the manager to ask if the following day was okay. She agreed. I arrived on time, was taking to the back office area. She was very nice asked me just related questions. I fudged up on 2 questions due to nervousness. I was told a background test will be sent over and then she will follow up. YAY I thought I got the job. Well I have yet to get a call back. A couple weeks later I see the same job re-posted on indeed. So now I feel quite foolish. I would love to work at the 2nd store location, but I will not apply again. :-(

    Interview

    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

    We met in the office and went through basic get-to-know-you/interview questions. Then we went onto the sales floor. I had to sell the manager a shoe for an imaginary client. I was told directly after that I was hired. It was really easy.
