Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Saint George, UT

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dillard's in July 2014.

Interview Details – Too many steps for an entry level retail job. Online application, then a test that requires 45 minutes, then two interviews and a background check, then hurry up and wait. The second interview was the bad cop interview designed to put stress on you. The first was really just to see how you look and if you fit the bill for their company image.

Interview Question – Tell me all about yourself.   Answer Question

Sales

I applied online and interviewed at Dillard's.

Interview Details – I was called and asked if I was still interested in the position. I said yes and set up an interview. I honestly cannot remember the questions but I wouldn't worry too much. Once you're interviewed you pretty much have the job. They will have you fill out a computer personality test after the interview.
