Sales Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dillard's.

Interview

Sat down with the store manager and the manager of the department I'd work in. Less than a dozen questions asked about myself, and past experience with the field. You can dress however you like, but keep it professional with your own style to it. For men, I went with a suit without the tie but still had cuff-links and no visible piercings. They do want you to wear a tie when working, but since it was an interview I didn't care.

They offer you full time or part time, whichever you chose when you applied. Then they offering you a rate of pay.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dillard's (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    My interview lasted around 45 minutes. It was like a personality test which i think i did well. I asked the lady after what was the selection process like, and she told me that if they liked me i would have to take the famous gallup test. And then after that, an interview with the manager. 3 weeks passed by and never heard from them. Today, i get a call from a lady saying that the HR person loved me and that i was set up for an interview with the manager tomorrow!! No phone interviews, no gallup test, and now im meeting with the manager?...i looking him up, and he is the manager for the product that if i get the job will be selling.

    Interview

    Met with store manager . The interview was around 10 minutes and very relaxed. He said they pay very well because they want their employees to have a career with them. After about 5 minutes he said he wanted to set me up with a second interview. I hope to do well at the second interview. Be sure to dress nicely, like you already work there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.

    Interview

    I applied online and a couple days later I get a call from H/R to set up an interview. I was interviewed by one of the Area Sales Manager, which went pretty well and the interview was easy. The manager was writing down my answers during the interview. The next day I was interviewed by the Store Manager and that took literally 10mins. All he asked was what did you talk about from the interview and what did I know about Dillards. Then the store manager explained more about Dillards and the position.
