    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DSW.

    Interview

    Short, easy, I would have to say they want to know alot about customer service. The interview is about 20-30 min long. If I were to give any suggestion I would say not to have a group interview. I think they do them because they get so many applications, but it seems like you don't care to know the personal as an individual. Still efficient, but less personal.
