    Cosmetics Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Broomfield, CO).

    Interview

    Interviewer arrived 15 minutes late, and when I arrived about 5 minutes early they were shocked to see me there that early. First thing interviewer said was I noticed your minimum wage is significantly higher than what we pay. Second thing being that they didn't even have the position I was applying for and she explained that all they had was a non-commissioned on call position and it paid about 50% less my minimum wage to be accepted. They should have never scheduled this interview for me. I also have never been so over dressed for an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • None, because I stopped her before we really got started.   Answer Question

    Interview

    That was very bad, I arrived 5 minutes earlier and they told me someone will be there with me in a moment but that moment took 45 minutes later. They did not that I had an appointment for an interview!!! The interview was very very informal in a room that looks very bad.... Bad experience!!

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Northridge, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Northridge, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an e-mail two days later asking for an interview. I waited in a small hallway with two other candidates. The wallpaper was clearly old and peeling, the carpet looked like it had not been vacuumed in years. There were two people conducting interviews, but the one that had my application called me in to interview more than 20 minutes late because she had been either doing business or socializing out of sight. The interview is completely scripted, as they ask just general questions about your job experience and go straight to the usual questions. They asked how I would help a customer find a pair of jeans or a jacket and I tried to demonstrate my knowledge of the Macy's in-store brands by pointing out the different styles Alfani, etc. cater to. The interviewer looked impressed but it obviously didn't help. The interview lasted about 15-20 minutes. I got an e-mail the next day informing me I had not received the job. Other questions: How would you react if you saw an employee doing something unethical? What is your flexibility? Why Macy's? What is your experience in customer service?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Applied on-line for a Loss Prevention/detective position. Have quite a few years experience and was emailed quickly to make myself available for a telephone interview. Went online again and selected a day and time I would be available. Stood by phone during assigned time and did not get a call. Went back on line to schedule a new time but it wouldn't let me. Sent an email and got a short and sweet sorry and would get back to me on how to proceed. After a couple of weeks emailed them again but did not get an answer. It's been three months now.
