    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    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. The man I interviewed with was very friendly and easy to talk to, and had a great sense of humor--something I always look for wherever I choose to spend my time! I was hired on the spot after a brief interview.

    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.

    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 weeksinterviewed 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 dayinterviewed 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.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I had a group interview but that's not common. It wasn't too bad all of us got hired even the annoying women trying too hard. Questions like how would you assist the customer find jeans? Just relax be yourself it's not hard. Honestly they hire ex cons!! Especially during the holidays so RELAX. If you get an interview you get the job. Don't dress like a *insert whatever term you want here* that goes for any job I see that a lot and its so annoying.
