    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I basically applied online like every other candidate, and later received a email a couple of days later. I called the store and setup an interview approximately 2 days later. I went in and they asked me general questions, and he basically offered me the position on the spot. No room for negotiation, and the pay was low at $7.75. I offered a call back, but I never called back because the low pay rate.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Did not get what I applied for.(had 2 interviews) I was asked some personal, non job related questions.**see below in interview questions 4 details.

     NO communication about hourly rate or hours/schedule.(details you pick up along the way) Not really shown much you have to ask. You must be a quick self taught learner or it will be a difficult and stressful place to work. Many friendly employees.

    I like the diversity,culture and want to be a part of Macy's. Training needs a little improvement. The flexibility of most of the employees at macy's is very good.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you have kids,are you married, Are you going to school.(these put me on the spot and was uncomfortable) Not job related. I believe these questions didn't have anything to do with experience in my opinion. I guess it could go either way depending on who you talk to.   View Answer

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Used one of the reviews here. Got offered a position. Thank you.
    The manager was very nice and I passed the interview, but the other manager for that exact department was not working that day, so I will follow up the day after.
    But I am confident that I'll get a job.
    I have had a Macy's interview before and was not offered a position. They told me "we'll call you". The manager from this interview told me they tell that to everyone who didn't pass the interview.
    I wore a black satin dress with some flowers, black tights, black pumps and a jacket. A simple leather purse as well, very chick. I think it helped too, it showed that I have a sense of style and can really fit in the clothing department. It also means that I can help other people dress nicely as well. (As soon as I walked in, she complimented me and I knew that we had a connection.)
    Anyway, just be yourself and good luck!
    Oh and try to remember that personality questions from the online will be asked and checked for being truthful.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baytown, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baytown, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by the store manager. She was a very friendly person and was very much committed to her job. She asked a ton of overly complicated questions and was very pushy about meeting sales goal, even when she admitted there would be slow times. Seemed like a lot of baloney for a minimum wage retail job.
