    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Saint George, UT (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint George, UT (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dillard's in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Too many steps for an entry level retail job. Online application, then a test that requires 45 minutes, then two interviews and a background check, then hurry up and wait. The second interview was the bad cop interview designed to put stress on you. The first was really just to see how you look and if you fit the bill for their company image.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Dillard's.

    Interview Details

    I was called and asked if I was still interested in the position. I said yes and set up an interview. I honestly cannot remember the questions but I wouldn't worry too much. Once you're interviewed you pretty much have the job. They will have you fill out a computer personality test after the interview.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Dillard's in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview. Had in person interview with store manager. Had another phone interview. Never heard back from anyone for 3 weeks. I found out they were still looking for candidates when they reposted the job on every career website. Very unprofessional. Salon was in despair because no one was attending to it.

    Craigslist ad--I responded, Cosmetics Manager emailed back, we scheduled an interview. She had a "flair for fashion" form she had to fill out on me. We talked about my clothes and "look." I answered standard interview questions regarding customer service and team spirit type questions. She asked about my availability. The interview ended. About two or three weeks later, I got a job offer from the actual assistant manager.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Dillard's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at home through the dillards.com website and got a call for an interview the very next day. The interview consisted of me talking to one person about what was required of the position. Questions were asked about my schedule. Was told I would interview the following day for my second and third interview. Second interview was more of the same as the first and the third was an interview with the assistant store manager. After speaking with her I was asked for two forms of ID for my background check and that I would receive a call regarding it later that day or the very next day. Received the call the next day asking to start the following day at 11 am.
