    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Von Maur (Davenport, IA).

    Interview

    There was a phone screening, phone interview, in person interview in Davenport. They tell you that you will be a buyer in 3-6 months, but like other people say on here that statement goes out the window once you accept the offer. The program is good for people that want to stay in store management but otherwise avoid like the plague because they have staffing problems in a lot of their stores and the store management want to keep the new talent in the stores as long as possible.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Buford, GA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interview was courteous and formal. Getting an interview wasn't hard, however they will neglect to follow up with you if you do not meet their needs. I would have appreciated a letter of acceptance or refusal for clarity rather than hanging on.
