    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process wasn't really all that difficult. For the First interview it was just the basics : "Tell me about a time when..." and "How would you handle this situation". I got called back for a second interview, but they told me the position was filled and offered me another position instead which was great.

    Interview Details

    The interview proces was very quick and easy took about 15 min. The hiring manager came in she looked drained and a bit tired. I wooed her and I was hired on the spot! I saw several people before me get turned down. But I was confident and answered the questions to the best of my ability.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    My experience was relatively simple and easy. I applied online, and within a few days I was invited by email to interview. I was interviewed by a manager, which took about 30 minutes. It may have simply been the manager I was interviewed by and that I had experience in retail and customer service so it went more quickly. During my time working there I saw a lot of people applying via the computers in the office.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview process. Had a number of people meet with HR to discuss a very short basic questionnaire. Then a group interview which acted like a training session. It was a very easy and short interview process. Possibly because it was seasonal so they just hired who they could to help during the busy season.
