    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Virginia Beach, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DSW (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I got called for a group interview a week after I applied online . I was told it was a group interview so I was super nervous . I got there 10 minutes early and had to wait a bit . The group interview was just me and one other person . It was a really laid back interview . The manager was super sweet and really showed she loved her job . I was asked the usual interview questions and then taken out onto the floor and shown what the job entails . After the interview we were told we would receive a call or email by next week !
