    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

    • Many scenarios were being asked. "How would you meet your sales goal for that day", "what would you do if you saw an coworking doing something unethical", "how would you get someone to sell something they can afford" and "how would you ask someone to open a Macy's card."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's (Tampa, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the next day, inviting me to come interview. I could choose the time. One-on-one interview in private office. Interviewer wrote down all my answers. Standard interview questions. With a bit of common sense, it is fairly easy. There was time afterwards for my questions, and I was offered my choice of 2 jobs on the spot. Low pay and no negotiation at all, but commissions should bump it up a bit.

    • Tell me about a time you saw someone doing something wrong, and what did you do about it.   Answer Question

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Macy's (Brandon, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interview started right on time yesterday. The woman conducting the interview was very nice. She told me right away that there were no positions available at this time, but she said she would hold onto my application and call if something opened up. I was asked 4-5 questions, all of which I found on Glassdoor before going in. The actual interview only took about 5-10 minutes, but the woman was very nice and we were just talking the rest of the time.

    Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macy's (Vero Beach, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email maybe a week later to schedule my interview. Had a good conversation with interviewer before she asked the basic questions. She then told me I was hired should I choose to accept (I did!). I was invited to train the next morning to be ready for Black Friday (this week).

    This is a perfect job for someone with good communication skills who needs something flexible. Shifts are not scheduled, they are picked up so you can choose your days and hours. I am 7 months pregnant so this is ideal for me and was very excited to get hired so late in my pregnancy.

    If you have no retail experience, I recommend playing up your communication skills and ability to work and get along with other people.

    I applied online, and received an email within the next day or two to schedule an interview. I arrived 15 minutes early where there were others waiting in HR for different reasons.
