    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Filled out the application online, got an emailed response to schedule an interview a day or two later. Showed up for the interview and ended up having to wait longer than the interview even took! Was told I would get a call back about this position or from someone else about another position, but never heard back from anyone. Way to keep your word and do your job!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Macy's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    1 hour interview. First with HR corporate, given a case study. "What-if" scenario, basically how would you react and respond to the situation. Who would you coach.
    Second was with the store manager. Behavioral questions. A lot easier than the HR corporate dude
    Made it to the next round, but they already hired someone before I even had a chance to go to the 2nd round.

    Applied online at macysjobs.com and received an email early next morning that I was invited to a interview and I could pick my own time & date that suited my schedule. Made my interview for the very next day at 6, got there at 5:55 where a manager was already there to greet me. Interview took about 30 minutes simple questions nothing major or scary so you shouldn't be nervous at all. Was told I was a top candidate because of my previous job history in sales & that they will call within the next few days to let me know if I reviev the job or not.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional. Went in for cashier position only to tell me they were interviewing for working with the truck shipment. I needed a job so I stuck with it. I met with one manager. Called later that day to tell me I got the job. Don't expect to get a lot of hours.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process seemed very easy. Applied online, picked interview slot, and then interviewed. Very laid back and easygoing. Manager said that they were very flexible with scheduling which was a plus in my opinion. Also mentioned their credit card which is a must to know about because that's what you'll be pitching when you start working there.
