    Assistant Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dillard's (Lexington, KY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    One interview consisted of a one-on-one with the store manager and the assistant store manager. It was pretty basic, consisting of sales-based questions about my past work experience. They wanted to know a lot about sales, and much less about merchandising. Another interview was with the store manager and a district manager. This was just to finalize the process and touch base about the pay, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your annual sales volume in your last position? What increases did you see?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was possible. It was very laid out on paper and much of the pay was based on commission and bonus potential anyway. This interview was for a cosmetics position, so the base salary was low, with much potential for bonuses based on overall department sales and commission based on personal sales.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview

    easy, the HR manager was sweet and easy to talk to, I was hired on the spot and started work the next week with 3 weeks training. other than this, there is really no other comments to make regarding the interviewing process at Dillard's. It was easy and quick. Before your personal interview with the D.O., you have to go on the company kiosk located in the Customer Service area to put in your work history and answer a questionnaire, all of which take about 20-30 minutes of your time.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dillard's (Lubbock, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Went in for an interview and meeting with them at the career expo. Was interviewed by a middle manager who then referred me up to the assistant store manager. After speaking with the assistant store manager and being told that I would have to start from the bottom even though I am a college graduate turned me off from the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know a lot about the fashion world?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Even though I interviewed for an Assistant Store Manager position with great experience and educational background, I was told that I would be required to start as an hourly sales associate and maybe in a few years I could move up to sales manager and then Assistant Store Manager. Apparently, even though I'm more qualified than a high school graduate, I would have to work at the same level as them with no guarantee of promotion since it is based on seniority and "if you are the right fit". Not worth my time as a college graduate with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Business.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was called by the hiring manager that she found my resume on monster.com and she wanted me to apply on their website and she would give me a call back shortly after to schedule an interview. So I did immediately after the phone call. Well, a few days past by and I never received a phone call back. I called them and asked for the hiring manager and they hung up on me more than once. I finally got a hold of the store manager and she apologized and said she would send the message to the hiring manager that I was trying to reach her. A couple of days went by afterwards and received a phone call from the hiring manager stating that the position was no longer available. I was extremely upset that they did not even give the chance to come in and interview. The hiring manager psyched me up for no reason.
