    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to vome in for an interview. I have no experience in retail and I am in high school so I'd only be able to work in the evenings on weekdays and I'm free all day on weekends. I was basically told I'm good for retail but my availability makes it difficult for me to work in retail. I was told that they attempt to place me in the "Support" department.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very short and to the point. If you apply for seasonal and have some type of sales background and customer service, THEY WILL HIRE YOU. I didn't have any, but i made up some and answered the questions. I prepared by reading some reviews on glassdoor, and all of the questions i read on here were the exact same ones they asked. You may not get the position you apply for. I applied for cosmetics and got a position in shoes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Easy, but they don't explain the pay structure. They won't tell you that you will owe Macy's if you don't sell enough to cover the hours that you work. They also don't really train you so you will start working on the floor with major sharks that will easily run over you..
