    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview

    Took 4 hours. A lot of questions. Understandable due to the position. They let you read the job description after the interview and ask if you have additional questions and answer them thoroughly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Von Maur (Des Moines, IA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Dress in regards to their dress code. Dress or skirt, hosiery, closed toe shoes, and shoulders covered. Be prepared for many "Tell me about a time.." prompts. If they tell you they will contact you soon after the interview, and if you haven't heard from them after 2 days, call them! I did this and it prompted them to check with my references ASAP and I immediately got a call back with a job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Von Maur in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were two interviews I did and both were back to back (they asked me to stay for the second). Both of them were very polite but did ask a number of different situational questions, rather than more formal questions about experience. I received a call from my first interviewer 3 days later with a job offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Von Maur (Moline, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very tedious and particular. They ask a lot of questions and they want you to provide specific examples. Very detail oriented. I had 3 interviews before I was hired. They were extremely timely though and called me exactly when they said they would. My store manager and HR manager are very lovely and kind ladies who is were very personable and willing to answer any questions I had about the job. They were even willing to work around my strange summer schedule and give me more time off than they normally would.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Von Maur (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone call or two and was scheduled for an interview with a very nice floor manager, Ashley. She was super nice, informative, and seemed very competent and shared her career path with Von Maur. I was very impressed until she got to the dress code part. Women expected to wear long sleeves, skirts, conservative style, neutral colors. No go for me. Get with the 21st century, seriously sexist company. I ended the interview right there!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Iowa City, IA).

    Interview

    First they call you with a mini phone interview. If you don't royally screw up they will then offer you a regular interview in store with the human resources manager. The interview is standard with no crazy questions. If you do well in that interview they will then schedule you another interview with the store manager. They say that interview should last up to 45 minutes but mine lasted a solid 5-10.
