    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview

    The first steps of the interview process were quick and efficient. I had two interviews with a recruiter in a span of two weeks, the first one being about 10-15 minutes and the second one being about an hour long. I received another email that the next interview was to take place at their headquarters with an HR employee.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Von Maur.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online and received a call within a couple of days. As soon as I got the message I returned the call expecting to be asked to do a phone interview or an in person interview, this however was not the case. The lady on the other line proceeded to immediately interview me, this gave me no preparation time for the interview. I was blindsided by the very low salary being offered, as well as being told that the position had "no chance for growth" - direct quote! Really one of the strangest experiences I have ever had in an interview, I truly go in to all my interviews completely prepared, but, like I said I was blindsided.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Von Maur (Buford, GA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Very easy questions. All of them were based on previous retail experience. Hiring manager was very nice. They all seem very intimidating. I suggest looking up the interview questions before, so you can prepare your answers ahead of time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Von Maur (Fort Wayne, IN) in January 2019.

    Interview

    A bunch of vague questions prepared by the HR department. I went through 3 rounds. One with the HR representative and another with the store manager. I had to wait nearly an hour for the store manager to arrive in her officer before I could interview with her. She wasn't very friendly and it was a rather abrupt encounter. It wasn't a very good first impression. With the tight job market, you would think they'd be a little more willing to hire good candidates and a little more eager. However these individuals were a little more stand offish.
