Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cedar Hill, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cedar Hill, TX
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dillard's in March 2013.

Interview Details

Applied at the store on a computer application. They called me about 3 days after I applied and got an interview with a department manager. After the first interview I received another interview with the assistant store manager, and after that my third interview was with the store manager. So basically if the first two like you its a big chance that you get hired. The interviews are basic sit in an office at the store and ask questions.

Interview Questions
Negotiation Details
No negotiation. They just asked about availability and sometimes are able to work around them, especially if you go to school or have a second job. Pay was so good that no negotiation needed.

    Had 3 interviews with store manager and assistant store manager and department manager all were fairly easy, but they took 2 months to decide. I think they were waiting for a place in the right department for me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Dillard's in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process took less than a week. I applied by sending my resume via Monster. Got a call about two days later from the HR secretary asking if I wanted to come in to fill out an actual application and possibly have an interview the same day. Went the next day, but the store manager was busy with a conference call. Called in the evening to come in the following day. Sat down with the store manager, and asked the normal "Why here?" question. It was a typical interview for about two minutes before he switched to talking about the Men's Department floor, which products they had, etc. I knew I had the job then.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
