    I worked at Von Maur full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid holidays
    No Black Friday hours
    Weekends off

    Cons

    Worked for st. Charles location as department manager for just under 3 years. I escaped just in time because the location is a DRIP!
    There is absolutely no foot traffic at all, which makes it hard to make your hourly sales goal you are held accountable for. If you do not make your goal- SEE YA- it's a very cut and agressive environment .
    the store manager is very manipulating, and will tell you anything to have things work in her favor. That includes promoting prematurely, and then terminating when they don't make their goal.

    Advice to Management

    QUIT PROMOTING PEOPLE WHO ARENT READY!! That's why there is so much turnover because you're setting them up to fail

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Von Maur (Glenview, IL).

    Interview

    From my experience I would say it was great. I had a screening the night after I completed my application. The screening was a few mins long and then the HR Manager asked to have never come in for an interview, since she enjoyed speaking with me. My interview was the next day. The HR Manager was the nicest, down to earth person, honest too. She spoke of her experience with growth with company etc. I then met the floor manager who was nice as well. Overall, great experience and both managers were on the same page.
