    I have been working at Von Maur

    Pros

    Autonomy, opportunity, you definitely get out of the experience what you put into it. Having a stock/housekeeping staff is a luxury.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any. People who bellyache about dress code, schedules, and the like have NO idea what the world of retail is really like. Von Maur is like a trip to Disney World compared to almost all other retailers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge underperforming department managers to improve their department performance or move along. People with little experience will do as little as necessary, and are not being contributors to the bottom line.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview Details

    I was called by von maur just a few days after I applied online. The women calling was super nice and asked me if I had time for an interview and I said yes. Luckily, I had a friend working at von maur and she warned me about the interview. The interview asked me questions such as what are your career goals ? And where do I see myself in 5 years. The women also told me how it was important that part timers work weekends.

    I was then told they wanted another interview in person so we scheduled an appointment for the next week. She asked me questions then went and got the floor manager and she interviewed me as well . All pretty easy questions if you come prepared. They then offered me the position .
