    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Riverside, CA).

    Interview

    The process was rather fast. She asked me why I wanted to work for the company while walking to the interviewing room. She also asked about availability.I felt like the interview process was more of a fast pace. I think she looked at my previous experience and thought I would be a good candidate. I still have to interview with the brand although she gave me to brand options. From there I am supposed to interview with the talent plus?

    Interview

    The interview was very simple and easy, with no out of the ordinary occurrences. Even was hired the same day as my interview.The manager who hired me turned out to be a great manager, one of the few. Applying for employment at this particular location is not something to fear as the entire process is rather simple.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Flushing, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was relatively easy to someone else. I had no sales experience prior and it was my first interview so it didn't go as well. Since I was a college student he wasn't pleased with my availability once school would start. He wanted someone permanent who could work as many shifts I guess. They asked simple questions "what would you in this case" and "how would you take charge of a situation". There was one thing that bothered me. THE GUY FELL ASLEEP. I don't know if it was me since it was my first interview or if he was tired. But it just seemed very unprofessional. I think I talked too much about my work which had little to do with sales and didn't stand out. So I think experience in sales would be very helpful in getting this job. He told me my availability was sort of a problem and once I updated he would look at it and give me a call. I've heard Macy's hires right on the spot so I'm pretty sure I didn't get it. And if I did, the inflexibility would be a problem so I wouldn't take it anyway.

    The seasonal position I applied for was in Brooklyn, NY. I had the interview at Herald Square and was hired to work there only one week after I applied. The interview was easy and fast. It's a one on one interview. The manager that interviewed me was very professional. Dress professionally and be prepared to answer questions about customer service and shop lifters. Everyone gets hired for seasonal.

    Interview

    Once I applied online, Macy's sent me a confirmation email and then sent me an invitation to schedule an interview via email about 4 days later. Scheduling was easy and straight forward. The interview itself was 15min and was nothing out of the ordinary. Be sure to smile, dress nicely, and show confidence and you'll be fine!

    Brief, interesting, and a learning process. The interviewer was a nice person but it was a bit monotonous. Also, the questions asked were a lot like the same other interviews.
