    Interview

    I applied online and received an invitation to interview via email a few days later. My first interview was with the sales area manager. I told her my goals and she thought I should interview with the store manager. We set that up for a few days later. The interview with the store manager was amazing. She was so helpful and she offered me a position, along with guidance for the career path that I want to take.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dillard's (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted a week later to schedule an in-person interview. No phone interview, they just asked me to come in and meet with someone in-person at the corporate office. The application stated that no prior experience was required, only a college degree and knowledge of Microsoft Excel. I went into the interview and met with one of the divisional buying managers. Initially she was nice but as the interview went on she became more short-spoken and unpleasant. She didn't ask me too many questions, except for specific details about my experience with Excel. She seemed disappointed that the last time I had used it was in college, 3 years ago. After that she kind of dismissed me and didn't seem interested..

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's (Chandler, AZ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Unorganized, unprepared and discriminated against for how young I look. Was told I was "very pretty BUT you just look too young, you would do better in juniors with how young you look" I am a grown woman and by no means a teenager. I was also asked if I was married, not sure how that relates to an interview at all. I am in aesthetics and I am very qualified to work at a makeup counter. Interviewer was not interested in seeing my work but just kept saying I LOOK too young. They also said they are just so busy, can you come back tomorrow?
