    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to a preview night where we learned more about the company and position. They brought in 4 managers and rotated around from group to group. You got a gift card for answering questions/participating. Then I was invited to a private Pre-night for people who received interviews. Then I had two 30 minutes interviews back to back. One behavioral, one coaching.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Austin, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email to schedule an interview. I went in for the interview and it took about 15 minutes. She asked why I wanted to work at Macy's and several situational questions related to customer service and sales. For example, tell me about a time when you helped a co-worker with a problem and what was the solution, and if you just helped a customer find a pair of pants they really liked, how would you encourage them to shop you specifically again?

    GIFT REGISTRY ADVISOR Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The online application is lengthy. Then you are required to fill out a questionnaire that is a bit of a psychological profile. It's over 50 questions. I was invited to schedule an interivew, which I did. The entire process up to this point was automated. When I arrived for the interview, I was told that the person hiring for the position was off that day, and I would be interviewed by the office manager. It was clear this was a waste of my time. We went through the interview, however, which consisted of a shorter version of the online questionnaire. "What would you do if you saw a fellow employee steal." "Give an example of a time you showed integrity at work." Stuff like that. The next day I received an email telling me I was not being offered the position because of the times I indicated I was available to work. I found this humurous since I had indicated in written and verbal form that I was available days, weekends, night and holidays. When else is there?
