    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview Details

    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.
