    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Raleigh, NC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very laid back, we didn't even go into a different room. I was told about the responsibilities about the job and what I would need to do. It only lasted about 10 or 15 minutes and I was basically told that I got the job.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Chesapeake, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Quick and simple. There were other interviewees before me so it did seemed rushed. She asked if I knew the dsw motto or policy. I dressed up business casual. There were many young girls working there so I was really eager to ace the interview. I think they already had decided on who they were going to hire by the time they got to me though.

Because of the amount of cliques and superiority in this environment, the people who ARE by your side will stay there for some time.) • lenient dress code (of course you can't wear sweatpants and sweatshirts. But you don't have to necessarily wear cardigans and blazers either. You can get away every day with a simple tee shirt and jeans.) • making people feel good about themselves and their self expression (sometimes you'll help customers find the perfect shoe, and in that moment of self hatred and confusion as to why you're even at this job, you'll feel good knowing you're making others feel confident in their personal style. You're helping people look good, and looking good means a lot more to some people than you'd think.) • you'll learn a lot about the real world (if you want to know about the conniving ways of the world, this is the place. The amount of drama between coworkers, who are mostly girls or older women, will baffle you at first. But make sure to watch closely- you'll learn how to survive amongst such people.)” – Full Review
