    Womens Shoes Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    the hiring process requires the applicant to fill out a questionnaire that takes about 30-45 mins to complete. Then you wait for HR to get into contact with you. The interview was very laid back and the lady didn't ask too many difficult questions. After the interview with HR I went to talk with my department manager and immediately the hiring paperwork got started.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were based on circumstances and usually went like this: tell me of a situation where you had to deal with a problematic associate and tell me how you dealt with the situation.   Answer Question

    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.

    Seasonal Support Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Was called a couple weeks after application was submitted online. Arranging a meeting was simple and the interview was straightforward. The manager said they hire a lot of college students during this time of year. Manager was nice, although if you apply for more than one position, the manager here was unclear as to exactly what I was doing. Vague. I thought I was going to be an on call employee when I ended up working there more than planned.

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    First is the long on-line application with the personality testing, then you are asked to come in. Interviews were fine, if they don't give you the whole story. Didn't give full process or explain training, when hours could be picked up. Sort of like they were telling half the story.
