    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    I was called by the hiring manager that she found my resume on monster.com and she wanted me to apply on their website and she would give me a call back shortly after to schedule an interview. So I did immediately after the phone call. Well, a few days past by and I never received a phone call back. I called them and asked for the hiring manager and they hung up on me more than once. I finally got a hold of the store manager and she apologized and said she would send the message to the hiring manager that I was trying to reach her. A couple of days went by afterwards and received a phone call from the hiring manager stating that the position was no longer available. I was extremely upset that they did not even give the chance to come in and interview. The hiring manager psyched me up for no reason.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dillard's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I originally arrived for the Polo Department position & within the first several minutes, I was offered a Sales Business Manager position for lingerie. They described the opportunity and mentioned the commission & managerial opportunities to me yet failed to mention the extremely high turn-over-rate of that position as well as the defiant staff and neglected inventory & standards.

    Women Shoes Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview Details

    You walk in and they ask some product knowledge and if you are comfortable with up-selling. They ask you some basic sales questions about how to approach people that may walk in to the store. It was a very simple interview which should have concerned me because the company just wants a live body to replace the last one.

    Interview Questions
    • "Are you comfortable not taking "No" for an answer at any time?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They pay everyone about the same rate, there is no room for negotiation as the more you make, they more ridiculous your quota is.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position, literally got a call the next day to set up an interview. I was interviewed by the operations manager. Interview basically consisted of telling him about my work history and experience. He told me what was required to work at Dillard's as a sales associate. Asked me if I was willing to approach people and if I was comfortable starting conversations with strangers. I said yes so he told me he would go ahead and submit the background check. This was on Monday, my first shift was on Friday.

    I applied online – 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.
