    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty good. A couple basic questions about customer service and personality mostly. The manager was very professional and made the environment somewhat casual and easygoing. I had no prior work experience at the time so the manager based the work situations as hypothetical scenarios.

    Part-Time Seasonal Retail Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After completing the application online it allows you to schedule your own interview. Met with a manager who only asked 5 questions and was hired on the spot. Very no non-sense. No special testing required. You do take a test on-line after completing the application which is more of a personality test. Ask the same questions over and over but reword them. You have to assign a rank from strongly agree to strongly disagree with an option of neutral. Most of the questions are on if you like to work independently or as part of a team. How you get along with others including customers, co-workers, & management. They also ask a lot about ethics and honesty. Similar to other employers tests in retail. Very repetitive. They ask you when applying to rank which jobs you are interested in most and why.

    Payroll Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Wilmington, DE) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I waited in a hallway for close to half an hour before the interviewer noticed I was there. I was right outside her office. The interviewer read from a script instead of asking my questions about my extensive experience. Her questions didn't apply to me. I don't think she looked at my resume once. I received a quick rejection email the next day.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Virginia Beach, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email within 24 hours to schedule an interview time. Arrive at least 15 minutes early to give you time to find the office because Macy's is a big store. The interviewer was really nice. The process was very short and sweet . She asked "name a time when..." Questions. Asked availability and she liked the fact that I wore all black being that Macy's company color is black. It lasted all of 10 minutes. At the end she informed me that they'd already hired all seasonal employees but wanted to hold on to my application for the next go around.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's in June 2013.

    Interview

    Very easy going interview experience. The manager I interviewed with was very pleasant. She began with very general interview questions. So much so I can't exactly recall them directly. When we got to the personal information point of the interview we end up going off topic, and discussing how her daughter was taking the same path as I in her education.
