    I worked at Dillard's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked at the deceased Highland Mall location, but instantly respected the management of the operations, and greatly respect the Dillards Corporation.
    There clothing is of better quality than all other retailers. Fashionable. Never before have I had the benefits, for the part timers. Very clean environment.

    Cons

    Required to wear a more professional look. Parking for older employee is sometimes far. The advancing limited.

    Assistant Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lexington, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dillard's (Lexington, KY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    One interview consisted of a one-on-one with the store manager and the assistant store manager. It was pretty basic, consisting of sales-based questions about my past work experience. They wanted to know a lot about sales, and much less about merchandising. Another interview was with the store manager and a district manager. This was just to finalize the process and touch base about the pay, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • What was your annual sales volume in your last position? What increases did you see?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was possible. It was very laid out on paper and much of the pay was based on commission and bonus potential anyway. This interview was for a cosmetics position, so the base salary was low, with much potential for bonuses based on overall department sales and commission based on personal sales.
