Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Colorado Springs, CO (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dillard's.

Interview Details Went to Customer Service and applied in-store which took about 30 minutes. It asked the basic questions. I was called a week later for an interview. The interview was pretty casual where the interviewer just asked more questions to get a feel of my personality and personal history than employment. She told me in the interview that I have gotten the job and just had to do the standard background check which I did pass.

Negotiation Details – There was none

I was invited for a second interview that following Saturday at one of the location. The ops manager already knew that I had interviewed for the other location and he had me to sign background consent along with other papers. I am still waiting

Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dillard's in September 2013.

Interview Details Basic questions regarding your sales experience and customer service relations experience. Definitely try to understand what the manager wants to hear. If they smile then you are saying the right things. It is good to have a solid job on your resume. Somewhere you have been more than six months.

Interview Question – I don't remember anything difficult in the interview process. The store manager hates a high turnover rate. So if you plan not to stay long in that position, don't make that obvious in your interview.   View Answer

Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dillard's in July 2013.

Interview Details I went in to fill out an application on their computer, that took about twenty minutes. Whenever I was done there is a phone that you pick up to call a manager, a manager came back and asked what I filled out for and the experience I had. I received a call about two weeks later for an interview. That interview was very informal and I really just got an overview of what I would be doing if hired. I was maybe asked two or three typical interview questions( what would you do in this situation, etc). She told me she liked me and she would schedule a meeting with the store manager. About a week later I received a call to come in to speak with the store manager. This interview was what I was expecting with the first one. I was asked your typical interview questions, every easy( most interviews are the same type of questions). Immediately after my interview with the store manager I met with the manager of the department I was to be placed. We talked and he explained how working on commission worked. I was offered the job about two days later.

Interview Question – There wasn't really any questions that caught me off guard, just your typical interview questions.   Answer Question
