I applied online – interviewed at Macy's.

Interview Details

The interview was simple and the person interviewing was very kind. She asked about previous jobs and why I'd had left. We made small talk and we had a few laughs. It was very forward and fast.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email the next day to schedule my own interview. Went in at the end of the week for the interview. Waited with one other person before being called in. Sat for a one on one interview and was asked fairly simple questions such as "Tell me about a time when.." and "What would you do in this situation.." Was told I would be contacted by phone or email to learn the status of my interview, was never contacted

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Macy's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Thursday, received an e-mail the next day to schedule an interview, and interviewed on that following Monday. I showed up about 20 minutes earlier, and my interview started almost on time. It was short and sweet- the interviewer read a series of questions and took some notes on my answers. His final questions was if I had any, and I asked about training. He explained the two day training process and then offered me a position!

    Interview Details

    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.

    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".
