    I worked at Von Maur part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Pays well
    -Great coworkers more often than not
    -Scheduled lunch breaks
    -Will work you a lot if you ask

    Cons

    -Uniform
    -Not enough breaks
    -A lot of work, which isn't a con necessarily, but they want you to do markdowns, inventory, stock, as well as giving customers 100%. Very high-maintenance, which is expected, to be honest.
    -Not flexible with scheduling-- make it difficult to call off or switch shifts with anyone

    Recommends

    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 .
