    Cosmetics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lithonia, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dillard's (Lithonia, GA).

    Interview

    Easy and pleasant. They require a rather lengthy online "personality" test, but the interview was low key. I don't recommend working here, but if you want the job, just dress nice and be nice and friendly. I was hired on the spot.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    You must have experience in this field - previous counter experience or have an Esthetician license. You can also be promoted within the store. My interview was fun and pleasant. Go in with can-do sales attitude and be peppy. Be prepared to answer basic Customer Service questions (How did you handle this in the past, How would you satisfy an unhappy customer) as well as questions about makeup application and skin care.

    Cosmetics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Dillard's (Fort Worth, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Brief, and simple, pretty much because the manager talked about herself the whole time.
    I've been down the road, I can interview for a retail job. They were weren't at all intimidating or trying to be at that point. You have to be proactive, expect after applying to call them, show up and ask about the status of your application.

    Cosmetics Counter Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dillard's (Beachwood, OH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    After following up, Store Manager, who is no longer working for the company, told me I had to go on the company website to fill out 100 questionnaire. Got a call back and interview from Asst. Manager from Stephanie who offered me the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your experience/or a memory that you have from Dillard's?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you have experience, ask for what you want for salary. It's very difficult to receive a raise here because of their AUS (Average Unit Sale) goals for each counter. I was offered $15 which was a pay cut compared to what I was making at previous position. Found out later that I was grossly underpaid compared to the people whose experience I exceeded.
