I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Von Maur in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online at www.vonmaur.com and was called within 48 hours of my submission. The first call verified the information on the application and I was asked if I would like to come into the store for an initial interview. A time was scheduled for the next day. I met with the HR supervisor and one floor manager. Questions were routine, why do you want to work at Von Maur, what do you expect from an employer, ect. A few days on a Saturday I interviewed with a second floor manager on following Monday I was offered a position.

Difficult Interview

Part Time Sales Associate Interview

Eden Prairie, MN

I applied online - interviewed at Von Maur in November 2012.

Interview Details – The interview takes place in 3 stages. First, you are contacted for an over the phone interview and if they are interested in you after the phone conversation they will set up an in-store interview. The in-store interview will mostly likely take place with a HR manager. If the in-store interview goes well they will set up an interview with the store manager. If all 3 interviews go well they will conduct a background and reference check and contact you with a decision and offer. Landing an in-store interview is the biggest challenge. I applied 3 times before ever getting an in-store interview.

Interview Question – The questions asked are very repetitive. They want to see if you are consistent with your answers and not just making up things as you go n   Answer Question

They asked me a lot of questions about situations I had been in with customers at previous; "name a time when you went above and beyond what a customer expected" type questions.
