    Order Management Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Caleres (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was emailed 2 weeks following my application, letting me know I had made it through to the next phase of the interview process (virtual interview). They gave me 5 days to complete this interview, which was nice because I could do it at a time that worked best for me. This interview consisted of 5 short answer questions and a few multiple choice questions at the end (but I did not know that ahead of time). TAKE THE PRACTICE TEST! I also highly recommend coming up with a list of possible interview questions so that you can be as prepared as possible, because this type of interview was way more nerve-wracking for me than an in-person interview. Had I not done this, I am confident I would have done terribly because the questions are all timed. You get 30 seconds to prepare once you've been presented with the question, and then it will automatically begin recording. The answers were also timed, generally only allotted 2-3 minutes for each question, and you only get one attempt for each question.

    I submitted this interview on a Saturday evening and received an email the following Wednesday asking me to come in for a scheduled in-person group interview that next week. I was even more nervous about the group interview than the virtual interview, so I did a lot of preparation for this one as well. However, when I arrived for that interview, I ended up being the only candidate being interviewed at that time. I had two interviews that day, one was with two employees who had previously worked in the same position I was applying for, and the other was with the talent management specialist who had first emailed me regarding the interviews. I was interviewed for a total of about 1.5 hours.

    I was first interviewed by Talent/HR then interviewed by Elyse Brisko. Both women were lovely to talk with and laid back. Elyse gave more description as far as the day to day. Taryn, HR, spoke more about logistics and about the company itself. The interview was not stressful at all, I felt more at home than anything.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Caleres (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is intimidating but manageable. The office is full of really pretty girls but everyone is very nice and welcoming. You usually meet with the head of the department you're applying for and then Sam will come in later and 'read' you to see if you fit the standard. He is very nice (intimidating) but nice. He will make sure you know fashion.
