    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Basically like everyone else says. Walk in and someone from inflight does a presentation about being a flight attendant, company history etc. Then the interviewers come in each one has a name. You go back to a room you have between 1-4 other ppl in the room interviewing at the same time. They ask you the usual customer service questions. If they like you they tell you they want to ask you a few more question. Two people (more than likely) from HR ask you. Few more questions way easier than the first set of questions. Basically are you ready for the change, ready to relocate if need be. They tell you to step out for a few minutes while they talk. They came back after about three minutes and offered me the job. Immediately went back to the airport did drug screening, vision and hearing tests.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you worked with a difficult coworker?
      What's a misconception that you think a customer would have about you?

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about a month later by a recruiter. The first interview was a 30 min behavioral interview. A couple days later I was asked to interview with another recruiter by webcam--this interview was also behavioral.

    After my first two interviews, I received an email about a week after inviting me to Macy's "On-Site" interview--the final round. This interview lasted two days and consisted of 4 interviews: two behavioral interviews, a one-on-one interview, and also a group interview. Be sure to be knowledgeable about Macy's key marketing strategies!

    After the final round interviews, I was contacted less than a week later with an offer. The entire process took about a month.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate because the starting salary is great for a recent college grad.
