    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Elder-Beerman Stores in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very easy process, was brought in to discuss how I would handle certain situations. I would be given an event, such as a customer comes in an i actually see someone steal something, what should I do? It was very easy and mindless. I would not stress out at all, use your common sense and you should pass on to the next level.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Elder-Beerman Stores in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Got called in for an interview. I really didn't want the job but applied anyway cause a friend worked there and it was close to home. I went to the interview in shorts and a t-shirt. Interviewer noted that I was dressed more casual than most applicants. I told her I like to be comfortable and that my work ethic speaks for itself. She asked me when I could start and I told her "Right now!" and so she hired me.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Elder-Beerman Stores in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    After I had filled an application online it took about 3 weeks to get a call. When the woman called me on the phone she had told me I was already hired but she had to ask me interview questions when I come into the store. After I came in to the store, had the interview, she filled out my work permit and told me to have it back within a week because my superintendent was out of town.. The woman was so unorganized, she couldn't even find my application. I come back before the deadline and she told me she gave my spot away. She told me to call next week, I called and she told me the same thing again, call next week. After doing that I gave up. Horrible experience.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and took the success profile (I think that is what it was called). About a week or two later, the HR Manager called and scheduled an interview with me. It was very easy. She just asked me to tell her about myself, told me a little about the company, and asked how soon I could start and what hours I would be available.
