    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dillard's (Paducah, KY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Relatively easy. Simple questions and telling about yourself. Manager pulled a bait and switch. Ask me to interview for ASM position which is what I originally applied for then changed to sales after I showed up for interview. I wore a Navy wool suit pencil skirt white shirt and navy pumps so I was dressed appropriately. When I asked to see sales numbers for present and past years since sales had declined in that area Manager was aggravated with me. Same thing when I ask about looking at how scheduling was done. Not sure if manager had ever had anyone question the business.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dillard's in February 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview was back in February. It was with the accessories department manager (I'm not sure why considering I wasn't even interested in. Lasted about 10 minutes. Just asked about my prior work experience. She scheduled me for a second interview which was supposed to be later that week. Well I didn't have that interview until a whole MONTH later. This time it was with the assistant store manager. Lasted about 30 minutes and was a bit unprofessional. Never heard anything back until earlier this week (April 24). A former coworker of mine works there and gave my number to the shoe department manager who set up yet another interview. This time it was with the actual store manager who asked the basic interview questions. She asked what department I was interested in and I replied "shoes and cosmetics". She calls the cosmetics manager up in which she takes over and shows me around the department. In other words, I'm hired pretty much on the spot.

    Interview

    It was a three step process, First, you interview with a sales floor manager within whatever department. Then the assistant Manger over the store and hopefully if they like you then the store manager. the store manager is your biggest battle to win, he wants to see that you know money and know how to earn yourself more money. simple

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview

    Questionnaire was tedious. Two to three interviews. Department Manager, Operations Manager, and Store Manager. The process did not take very long and you have to be able to pass a background check. They look to see how you well you fit in and how measure you up as to if you will make them money. If the department manager likes you, you move onto interview #2, and then again to #3.
