    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Glenview, IL).

    Interview

    From my experience I would say it was great. I had a screening the night after I completed my application. The screening was a few mins long and then the HR Manager asked to have never come in for an interview, since she enjoyed speaking with me. My interview was the next day. The HR Manager was the nicest, down to earth person, honest too. She spoke of her experience with growth with company etc. I then met the floor manager who was nice as well. Overall, great experience and both managers were on the same page.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Lincoln, NE) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Long phone Call then two interviews, fairly straightforward and I got the job regardless of doing what I would consider a bad job in all stages. I usually do well at interviews however and this was no different. It seemed like they just wanted enthusiasm and quick answers that were somewhat coherent. Interviewed with two managers.

    Cosmetics Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wichita, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Wichita, KS) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was extensive and redundant, very detailed and specific. I first had a 10 minute phone interview, that proceeded a few days later with a 30 min in person interview, that followed a few days later with another in person interview with a different manager for 30 min as well, and also the same series of questions in a different fashion, then followed immediately by a 30 min online personality quiz. A couple days later I heard from the Administrative Executive who which I 'passed the test' for, followed again by a confirmation from the first person I interviewed with in person, and THEN another short 15-20 minute follow up/confirmation of the requirments, policies, and training schedule.
