Interviewed at Macy's

Interview Details – filled out online application was then told I did not have to fill out the questionnaire because convergys and Macys uses the same questionnaire and the one i filled out for convergys was still valid and macys would use that. got a email stating unfortunately they could not hire me. they did not give me any reason. The questionnaire I filled out for convergys that macys used was over 6 months old. I dont know how long they stay in the system.

Cashier

I interviewed at Macy's in December 2012.

Interview Details – Interview was very easy and they asked me about my experience and how I would sell their credit cards. I was able to answer to this question. I was offered a job . I worked there for two weeks. Stuffs are friendly but they prioritize those who works there ,I was a seasonal worker. Girls were jealous because they have to sales. In general, I had negative experience with them. Too low salary

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Macy's in September 2012.

Interview Details – oh well the best time to apply is seasonal, you would have to apply online. when you are in the interview they will ask you normal questions. why do you want to work for macys, your availability, tell about yourself, how would you sell a pair of jeans. The interview is really easy and they will tell you in the same interview if you are hired.

Interview Question – how would you sell a pair of jeans
what do you know about the company products
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – they just offer you 8.00 dollars for cashier, on call because they just dont have enough hours to give

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in November 2011.

Interview Details – Sat in a room filled with others having 1-1 interviews as well. Asked me basic interview questions like: why Macy's? What would you do if you caught one of your coworkers stealing? And tell me about a time you've shown great customer service? After all questions I was instructed to wait to speak to another manager. After talking to that manager I was immediately hired on the spot.
