    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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 weeksinterviewed 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 weekinterviewed 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 daysinterviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview

    A LOT of "Tell me about a time when..." questions. I got interviewed my two different floor managers (not at the same time, got asked questions by one manager and then she asked if I had time to meet with the other manager to be interviewed). They both will end up asking the same questions (at least they did for me), so the second interview is a bit easier because by then you can just repeat what you said to the other manager. If you havent had a job before, you can just use examples from everyday life or from school. They also do a phone interview, depending on how you answer those questions they will either invite you in for a face to face interview or will tell you they will get back to you. If they say the latter, expect to get a letter in the mail basically saying they don't want to further the employment process.
