    Interview Details

    I applied online which was kind of daunting. I've applied to other retail jobs online and the application was relatively short and to the point. Macy's, on the other hand, was much longer and wanted more info, which made it longer to fill out.

    Holiday Human Resources Interview

    Interview Details

    The person interviewing me was very nice, however the Interview was very unprofessional. She thankfully was very forward and gave honest information.....pretty much let me know I would be working crazy hours and not get paid much. She told me in my situation, she didn't think I should be applying for this job at Macys. Retail is bad, but apparently Macys at holidays, even if in offices, is very bad.
