    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's (Kennesaw, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    After reading about other people's experiences with applying for this position , I was prepared going into my interview for someone to tell me this position was filled, not know that I had an appointment, etc. I called the HR office at the store that morning to confirm my appointment since I scheduled it online and never talked to an actual person. I got an answering machine-no one returned my call. When I arrived, I was quickly introduced to the person who was interviewing me. He was friendly and enthusiastic. The interview was very basic-he asked typical questions and we walked around the store so he could show me some of the marketing materials. HOWEVER, he tried to sell me on going to a different store location the entire time-a location that's in a VERY dangerous part of town. He kept telling me what a great fit I would be for that store and that I would be able to work more independently there. He was showing me things around the store in a way that seemed like he was telling me what the other location was having problems with and what I would need to fix over there. I think they were trying to bring in people for interviews at a popular store so they could try and talk them into going to another location that probably isn't receiving many applicants since it's in a dangerous area. Very sketchy!

    Negotiation

    He offered to negotiate an hourly wage with the initial offer being $9 an hour, but with this being my first job there was really no reason to negotiate. I wasn't getting minimum wage (in GA, $7.25) so I was good.

    Interview

    I applied online, and a week later I received an email the following week. I had a bit of trouble scheduling the initial interview, but after that it was easy. I arrived 15 minutes early, and had to sign in. Later, I was taken to another room where I met with an interviewing manager. I answered every question honestly, and even explained that there where some questions I could not answer at the time as I did not have all the information necessary. 4 days later I received another email explaining that my availability is what cost me the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Macy's (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contact 4 days later to setup a face to face interview via email. I arrived 15 mins early to the interview. I was a little skeptical about who would be conducting my interview after reading other reviews that said Macy's pulled a bait and switch on what position they interviewed candidates for however I was indeed interviewed for the correct position by the visual manager. He was nice the interview was very laid back. I interviewed three weeks ago for the position and never received a rejection or acceptance. However Macy's contacted me yesterday and asked if I'd be interested in a sales or support position I declined and let HR know that I only had interest in the position in which I interviewed which was "still open" so she said she'd email the manager to let him know I was still intrested.I think Macy's could do better with being up front about there company needs and stop wasting peoples time.
