    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dillard's (Albuquerque, NM).

    Interview

    Easy going. Not a lot of pressure. It's fairly common that if you get called for an interview, you will most likely get hired. Interviewing for a management position could take much longer once you interview with all the people in the process. Getting offered a management position could take months.
