    Administrative Support Team Member Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Tallahassee, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived at the interview 20 minutes early. The AST supervisor couldn't find a manager to complete the interview so she did it herself. She basically stated in the interview that she's only been there for two weeks and that I probably could train her on the job (I've previously worked at Macy's). The interview was okay. None of the questions applied to AST, they were all sales questions. I later found out that she had the wrong interview sheet.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Tampa, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process took one week in total. Applied online, did the assessment, and then scheduled my interview through email. I had a one on one interview and it was fairly quick, like 5 or 6 questions. The interviewer took notes while you spoke and asked if I had any questions at the end. Oh yeah, I was also asked what area would I like to work in (men's, women's, children, etc). Then I was told he would give the information to the hiring manager or HR (can't remember) for the next step. Now I'm waiting for an email or call back.

    Cosmetics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pembroke Pines, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Pembroke Pines, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a woman from the cosmetics department and she asked some basic questions and wrote down the answers. She asked about my experience and if I'd be willing to apply makeup to people's hands and faces. I applied for a part-time position but since I'm going back to college in a month, she just put me down for a temp/as-needed position. She said cosmetics training takes longer than most retail positions because you need training from Macy's and from the vendor. Be prepared to commit to a long training process if hired. Also, she mentioned that they use a 9-point system so if you miss work, are late to work, etc., you lose a point, and if you lose all 9 points they fire you, no matter how good you are.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Miami, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email the following day to schedule an interview. I choose an afternoon interview slot and once I arrived, was called to the back for an interview. The interview was extremely easy and she asked all the questions that were on this website. However, after the interview she said that there were no current openings but I interviewed extremely well. As a note, Macy's has a "now hiring" sign at all times and will have applications and interviews for positions that aren't even opened.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied at Macy's website as retail visual merchandising and received an email the next day to schedule an interview. I scheduled my interview on Wednesday. The next day I went to get ready to for my interview. After going to the resources office, I told the employees that I'm here for an interview, so I waited 20 minutes to be called. Once I was called to interview, the guy that wants me to interview and he was very nice. Basically he ask me about my work experience and why do you want work at Macy's and do you have experience in visual merchandising and i was like I had somewhat experience in art or store layout. But sadly I didn't get the job because he was look for someone who has strong interest visual merchandising with years of experience but he recommended me to apply as retail commission sales associate because this is something that I am interested in and benefits it has. So I jumped to the computer after the interview and apply as retail commission sales waiting for invitation for another interview. Overall, I had a good experience at the interview and hopefully I can get the job soon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I was hired through a phone interview. The phone interview contained personal questions mostly about prior work experience and many behavioral based "tell me about a time when" questions. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. It wasn't the hardest interview but it also wasn't the easiest. I advise to be prepared to link your experience with how you can benefit their company

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Miami, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. They print out your applications and use that to ask some questions. So make sure you don't lie on your application and remember your inputs. So now this lady here was laughing and all.. then she tells me she will e-mail me. right then and there I knew I didn't get it because she hired someone else on the spot. A spanish girl. I remembered someone else wrote a review stating if you are not spanish, it is likely you will not get the job. At first i thought that was b.s., but now i'm starting to believe it. How are you going to send an e-mail telling me i do not have the skills and qualifications. Them girls have no experience , while i have experience and is food handling certified. Mannnn macy's interviewer can kick rocks... Having people waste their valuable time and stuff..
