    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dillard's (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and then interviewed with a sales manager, Assistant Store manager and then Store Manager. Process was quick but then you have to come back another day and spend 5 hrs watching the training videos. There is no cash register training and no one on one training available to associates.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you maintain your customer base ?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Even though I was a well seasoned sales person I was not offered a full time position. I felt the pay scale was low in comparison to the quota that was to be made. The store manager was only concerned about his sales quota.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Dillard's (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Presentation is everything. You must dress professionally from asking for an application to the interview. By professionally I mean suit and jacket for men also a tie and don't for get dress shoes. For women I would suggest a modest black dress with black heels. During the interview do not the phrase "I think." It shows that you are doubting yourself which is the last thing you want to do. Be professional, ask questions, take notes. The more interested you are with them, the more interested they will be with you.

    Showing proof of your job experience in a portfolio is important. Come dressed for success because your attire gives management a "first impressions" of you. Carries a lot of weight with them. Customer service and sales are most important to company and knowledge of both important.

    • Every interview was different. An online questionaire tells them a lot about you and they weigh heavily on that and a background check before hiring.   Answer Question

    They try to be competitive with what you were currently making at another position. They are willing to pay a top price but much will be expected of you which is only fair.
