    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's (Denver, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Went to a dirty room with chairs inside. There was not work sheet for the interviewer to use. She barely took any notes as well. This interview was very informal. I also have to say I ws underdressed. Don't get me wrong I dressed for an interview but the woman was wearing a floral summer dress with no sleeves.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview

    The interview was quick probably around 7 minutes. The interviewer wanted me to do most of the talking. He keep asking me if I had any questions but only asked one or two questions of his own. He wanted to know why I left my previous job and why I wanted to work for Dillard's.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dillard's (Crestview Hills, KY).

    Interview

    Takes 3 interviews to get you through, they keep you waiting for a call and never call you to see if you don't get the job! They make it seem like you're going to get hired but all they do is waste your time when you could be out searching for a different job!

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call for an interview 3 days later . The interview from the start went downhill because she wanted to know my availability and due to children's daycare hours I can only work during the day week days . She stated I need to work atleast two nights and Sunday didn't count . From then on she seemed very uninterested , didn't really ask me anything other than how can I workout getting a new babysitter for nights . She also stated that my outfit wasn't appropriate for dillards and that my past job probably doesn't care what I wore but they do here . She was very condescending throughout the interview . I was very turned off and was just ready to leave . From what she described of the position wouldn't leave me with much of a home life and I felt very pressured about sales she said I would need to make or I would be fired . She offered me the job but I declined

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dillard's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online, got a instant call to schedule an interview. Attended the interview and was asked basic interview questions. The interaction with the manager was interesting. She wasn't rude, but I definitely didn't get the vibe she enjoyed her job. She mentioned they get no time off, that it wasn't very busy so calling people to basically get them to come in would be a requirement. (Which it is sales, so makes sense) I was offered the job but I didn't feel like it would be the right fit for me even though I love cosmetics. After reading further reviews about the company and local reviews especially, I knew it was the best decision.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dillard's (Gilbert, AZ) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Well first let me say that the employer was super condescending to me. The first thing she said was "Word of advice, Dress for an interview," in literally the most condescending tone one could possibly hear. Please. Save your time and apply elsewhere.
