Application Details

Interview Details

I applied online on Sunday, and received an interview invite the following day. I scheduled my interview for the next day at 4:30PM. I arrived about 15-20 mins early and waited in the lobby. My interviewer was very warm welcoming and friendly. He asked about 5 questions and my availability. He gave me the run down of the different positions and offered me a position. I enjoyed the process, and I was prepared thanks to Glassdoor interview reviews for this company.

    Generally, once you have been called in, they have you sin in the HR office with multiple seats and other candidates. But ,unfortunately , you can hear their conversations.So be prepared to say yes to $9.00 hour, for grunt work in the worst time of the year.

    I came late but that didn't matter since no one was there and when they finally came I had to wait another 30 minutes. When I finally went to interview with a managet she asked me about 5 questions (i.e. Tell me about a time you were given great customer service) and told me she would call back if they had any open positions. After i left and was headed up the elevator she stopped me and told me they had a postion and asked me to come and fill out paperwork.

    Interview Details

    Well I applied for the position online after I was sent an e-mail so I can set up an interview time+date. I chose an interview for the nest day. The interview was really easy since I was prepared! I actually came to this sight to see what questions would be ask. I was asked most of these questions.. The interviewer said she really liked me and was going to give a call back the following monday.... She never did-_-
    So I took it upon myself to call Tuesday. Long story short she basically gave me the "run around".

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the next day got an email asking to schedule an interview online. 2 days later i went into the store for the interview and was hired after only a few questions. I filled out paperwork and started training the next day. The questions were simple and the actual interview only took about 15-20 minutes. The woman interviewing me was very friendly so it made the interview easier.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Macy's in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied about two weeks before my interview. I had a late start and still arrived early. Was called back about fifteen minutes later than my scheduled 11:30 am interview. I have problems with transportation (the last bus to my house is at 7:45pm) and the interviewer says she needed people who were flexible. She asked me a few questions and I guess she liked me because she went to see if there were positions I could take, such as fitting rooms. At the time, there wasn't, but my name is on file in case something comes up. I actually would have been hired on the spot if I had a ride.
