    I have been working at Caleres full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture at Caleres is like no other. The people are extremely friendly, everyone has a smile on their face and willing to help others out. People are respected and their decisions are taken seriously at all levels. The life-work balance is also greatly appreciated, while there are times I need to work late, other times I need to get out early, so you aren't nickled and dimed on the time you work. They also take seriously your career goals and aspiration for rising to the next level, without holding you back. I always recommend to my friends to look for opportunities at the corporate office.

    Cons

    You will work hard, but are rewarded for doing so.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Caleres (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was emailed 2 weeks following my application, letting me know I had made it through to the next phase of the interview process (virtual interview). They gave me 5 days to complete this interview, which was nice because I could do it at a time that worked best for me. This interview consisted of 5 short answer questions and a few multiple choice questions at the end (but I did not know that ahead of time). TAKE THE PRACTICE TEST! I also highly recommend coming up with a list of possible interview questions so that you can be as prepared as possible, because this type of interview was way more nerve-wracking for me than an in-person interview. Had I not done this, I am confident I would have done terribly because the questions are all timed. You get 30 seconds to prepare once you've been presented with the question, and then it will automatically begin recording. The answers were also timed, generally only allotted 2-3 minutes for each question, and you only get one attempt for each question.

    I submitted this interview on a Saturday evening and received an email the following Wednesday asking me to come in for a scheduled in-person group interview that next week. I was even more nervous about the group interview than the virtual interview, so I did a lot of preparation for this one as well. However, when I arrived for that interview, I ended up being the only candidate being interviewed at that time. I had two interviews that day, one was with two employees who had previously worked in the same position I was applying for, and the other was with the talent management specialist who had first emailed me regarding the interviews. I was interviewed for a total of about 1.5 hours.
