    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    As many others commented- Macy's set up my interview entirely online and when I arrived for my interview, proceeded to interview me for the wrong job. The most apathetic HR person I've ever met asked me questions directly from a wrinkled printout, in a monotone voice, until I figured out she was asking me questions for a position I never applied for. What a waste of time, what a rude HR person.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boca Raton, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Macy's in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The people at the front desk were very cold and ignored me so I had to be pushy to let them know I was here and ask what they wanted me to do. Then after a long time of waiting and other people interviewing I was pulled to the back and asked about my availability and what it meant to work for them. I was asked what customer service means to me. I was asked if I had ready transportation every day and how I'd engage a customer.

    Administrative Support Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  West Palm Beach, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for this position in July 2014 three weeks later I got an email inviting me to schedule an interview on their website. Scheduled the interview for 2 days later went in and let me say I don't know if it was a stress test or what but the administrative support supervisor came across as no nonsense. She jumped straight in started asking questions right off the bat I don't know think she even knew my name other than me introducing myself after her brash attitude at the door asked me Can I help you? I don't think she even knew what position I even applied for or even had my resume. Which I brought along but she was so to the point after entering her office I didn't even bother to offer her a copy. I was turned off immediately.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked nothing that had to do with the position which in my opinion should have been focused on office skills. Nevertheless she asked name a time when you received exceptional service? why did you apply to Macys? tell me a time you worked as a team what was your role and what was the outcome? name a time you went above and beyond for a customer? Standard stuff not personal whatsoever she asked availability/saying we work sometimes 72 hours+ sometimes which I knew didn't relate to my position because it was a PT position   Answer Question

    Payroll Administration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found my interview highly unprofessional almost to the point of being insulting. I was dressed like a professional in a suit, hose and pumps. My interviewer was in yoga pants and flip flops. The interview consisted of her reading questions off a script and then attempting to write down my answers. I say "attempting" because she was incapable of spelling most of the words I used. I was then told that the position was less than 20 hours per week and the pay rate was under $10/hr.
