Sales Associate - Specialist Interview

Sales Associate - Specialist
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Macy's in October 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed for seasonal position. Hired on the spot. The culture of Macy's is every customer should leave happier than when they came in. The Interview was fairly easy. I was fresh out of college. They asked basic questions pertaining to customer service and selling abilities. Google retail interview questions.

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – At the time I needed a job desperately so I did not even think to negotiate since what I was offered was more than I previously made. Now I wish I would have tried as I have a Bachelor's degree in Fashion Design and Marketing and don't even get $10/hr

Sales Associate/Specialist Interview

Sales Associate/Specialist

The process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in October 2007.

Interview Details – I brought in a resume and as I turned it into HR they told me to wait and rang for the Cosmetics manager. I guess they had needed someone asap. She took me into her office and looked over my resume. She asked question about my make up artist license, like how long I have had it and who I have worked with before. It was most laid back interview I have ever done.
