I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's in October 2013.

Interview Details

I originally applied online for a part time sales associate position. 5 days later I got an email requesting an interview and I got to choose the time and date available. Right after I did I got another email as a appointment confirmation. 7 days later I got another email (the day before my interview) as a appointment confirmation (again) as reminder for my interview the next day. I went to my interview the next day & on the way there I called the Macy's number I got on yelp & let them know I was gonna be a little late.. I was about 20-30 minutes late to my interview. My manager was super sweet & kind. She was glad I called her to let her know I was gonna be late, rather than just showing up late. During the interview, I was really nervous and was having difficulty with my answers (cause last time I interviewed at Macy's I didn't get the job). So I just told her that I was really nervous & she was really calm and funny and tried to get me to ease up a bit. I ended up feeling a lot more comfortable around her and at the end of the interview she told me because I didn't have any job experience, especially in retail, she feels leery about putting me in a commission job. She offered me another job as a recovery seasonal (she didn't tell me what the job was gonna be though until she asked me to come fill out paperwork 7 days later, she just described it to me). She said this job would be perfect beginners experience and it's like a foot in the door and if they like me after, they'll offer me another job to stay. She said if I was interested in the seasonal job for now, to call her back on Tuesday (6 days later) and she wrote down her number and extension number on a sticky note. I called her that Tuesday and she said she was just about to go into the meeting so to call her back tomorrow.. I called her the next day and someone else answered & told me she was in an interview and if I could wait about 20 minutes she would give me a call back.. Two hours passed so I called back twice and then finally my manager answered and apologized but she's just been really busy. She asked me to meet her in an hour to go and fill out paperwork. I called and left a message because I was gonna be late (AGAIN) and when I got there I ended up being an hour late (I have to take the train and it takes two hours to get there) She had me fill out the paperwork and went over it with me. She scheduled me to come back next week for training and then shook my hand and said "I'll see you next Tuesday and Wednesday".
