Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at DSW.

Interview Details

All paperwork is done online. There is a personality test, math and language test. Took me 4 months from application to hire and 6 weeks from offer to start date. This is a really bad place to work the only plus is the shoe discount but you end up spending your whole check here.

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at DSW in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Regional Manager interviews EVERY salaried applicant in the REGION. Two interviews required before you get to the District Manager. If you get thru them, then the Regional Manager conducts a gruelling 2 hour interview face to face. Be prepared to know every number associated with your Retail past, be able to talk yourself thru any random question thrown at you in that final interview with the Regional Manager. Don't expect, at any phase of the interviewing process, to know if you even have a shot, including when you leave the final interview with the Regional Manager. Very, very stressful.
