    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (one day after the job position was posted) and received an email within a week prompting me to schedule an appointment for an interview for sometime during the upcoming week. On the day of my appointment, my interviewer was late for my interview and rushed through the whole process when she finally arrived. The interview itself was extremely short and the questions were specific to the position that I applied for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macy's in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was sent an email that I was chosen for an interview. I picked the next available date (online) about a week later. Arrived 20 minutes early and waited to be called (I was the only one there but they were also expecting another girl whom I didn't see) but it seemed that all the managers were still out to lunch (1pm) an AST supervisor did the interview one on one in an office. I was prepared and just a tad nervous but the supervisor was easy to speak to. She asked if I was aware it was seasonal, temp job and i said yes. Told me that since it is, i didn't have to go thru the whole interview process. asked me a few questions and told me to fill out some info and gave me a paper with a list of things I should bring to verify i can work (told me she wasn't allowed to say which one but to choose from column a or b and c) Said she will call me in a week. Just 24hrs later, i got a customary rejection email from HR:
