    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pleasant, but quickly found it was not the company that I would be able to grow in quickly. The company has a very flat structure which is good, but is heavily managed by the family. Not a lot of room for growth for the the particular position.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Dillard's in February 2014.

    I interviewed on campus with a recruiter and then applied online. I was contacted several weeks later to schedule a one on one interview and do drug and background testing.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was very laid back. The store manager interviewed me and then the district manager interviewed me. Tell me how your school curriculum will help you succeed in this position. Did you enjoy the last retailing company you worked for. Asked me several questions regarding things on my resume such as tasks for previous jobs.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation with an internship because there were plenty of other people who would take the spot with the current pay. The pay was very competitive with other retailers.
