    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I applied on line and in about a week I got called to come in for an interview. I met with a manager who interviewed me and then was scheduled to come back for another interview. The second interview was with the Assistant Store Manager and then I had the third interview that day which was with the Store Manager.

    Interview

    Two interviews, first one positive as if I'd get the job. Second one was short and afterwards I was promised a call back but 2 weeks later still nothing. I'm very disappointed.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dillard's (San Antonio, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Spplied online, very quick response to application. Phone call, voicemail and email sent. I responded a short time after and set up an interview for the day after next.
    The store was empty, I had to ask for directions to "customer service" (there is no customer service, fyi. It's offices and gift wrap) My interview began 15 minutes late, I do have respect for the manager who interviewed me, she was extremely pregnant and walking around in heels, so I didn't mind being after her bathroom break and lengthy review of papers on a clipboard. After she introduced herself, I was brought to a back "training room" in the quiet dark corner and sat at a long table.
    The manager asked me what I knew about Dillard's, I responded with my answer and told her that most of my experience was in Customer Service (Dillard's specialty)
    She then interrupted me and said that she was going to stop before we got too far. She informed me that although my top and cardigan were acceptable and my pants were acceptable, they were not up to their standards "worn together" .
    Not even for an interview.
    She told me I needed to "dress like I am going to church" and the shoes I had on would not be "Dillards acceptable" at all.
    She said she was going to be off the next day but would put me with another manager to come in and have the actual interview.
    I have 5 years of retail management experience, educated and I am extremely friendly, but the clothes I wore were not "good enough" for a young woman who seemed to be on a bit of a power trip.

    Technology Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Starkville, MS
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dillard's (Starkville, MS) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was on campus the day after our career fair. There were two interviewers who were very friendly and simply wanted to dig deeper into my resume. Dillard's Technology in Little Rock, AR is heavily coding dependent, so they asked about my favorite programming languages and why. They like SQL, COBOL, Java, and web development languages. As a retail store, a lot of coding they do has to do with inventory management and user interface systems. The company focuses a lot on placing you in a role they believe you fit best after you complete the trainee program. They told me the position they believe I fit best, but could not extend an offer this recruiting round because I graduate too late.
