    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I got called for a group interview a week after I applied online . I was told it was a group interview so I was super nervous . I got there 10 minutes early and had to wait a bit . The group interview was just me and one other person . It was a really laid back interview . The manager was super sweet and really showed she loved her job . I was asked the usual interview questions and then taken out onto the floor and shown what the job entails . After the interview we were told we would receive a call or email by next week !

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to DSW at the end of June then got contact 2 1/2 weeks later. The manager was very nice. The interview was pretty basic. She told me that she had more interviews to do in the next couple days and that I'd be hearing from her at the beginning of next week. I did have to wait a bit past the time I was scheduled for. I was told to look around the store until then. I'll​ update when I get the results.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DSW.

    Interview

    After filling out online application, received a call from the DM the next day to set up a time for an interview. Interview with DM was about an hour. Getting to know my experience and wanted to find out what I was looking for in my next position. A pretty informal, relaxed interview. I got a call from the DM a few days later to set up a time to interview with another DM in the market. When I got to the store for the interview, the DM was a few minutes late and had no clue of who I was, my past experience. Seemed very unprepared. The DM kept asking strange questions and I felt as though they were disinterested and not focused on the interview. They even checked their phone twice. Was told I would hear back within a few days on their decision. Never heard from them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW.

    Interview

    My interview took place in a group of about 5 of us. The manager was very nice and easy to talk to. Most of the questions she asked were about the DSW values and how we could apply them to our personal lives. The interview was very brief, and it was much easier than I expected (as I thought it was going to be a little more difficult.)

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Syosset, NY) in June 2017.

    They started off by telling me the job i applied for pretty much didnt exist. Every associate in the store has the same responsibilities. They dragged on the interview for 40 minutes or so just to make it very clear they would contact me the next day if i was hired. 5 days later I get a call asking if i would like to move forward.
