    Interview

    Brief, interesting, and a learning process. The interviewer was a nice person but it was a bit monotonous. Also, the questions asked were a lot like the same other interviews.

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Industry, CA).

    Interview

    i applied online and a few days later received and email from Macy's inviting me to an interview (it went to my spam folder) then a few days after the email i received a phone call from Macy's once again inviting me for an interview. they allow you to choose the best day/time for you interview from a webpage ( it's better to pick the soonest date). once the interview is confirmed you will receive a confirmation email with details on how to check in and where to go. you arrive and enter the main entrance where you have to check in with security. they check you ID, take a picture of you,and give you a name badge. you then are allowed in to the waiting area.there will most likely be other applicants there too.the first part of the process was a group tour of the warehouse. an employee will show you around the entire warehouse and give you some brief info on the various types of jobs. our tour guild said they give a tour first because lots of people apply/interview but then quit once they see the warehouse. next he will take you up stairs to another waiting/lunch area where they will sit you all down and ask "so does any one want to op out?".they also gave us the pay and hourly details at the point. if you don't like what you've seen this is your chance to leave.finally they interview each person one by one. you can hear the other interviews because they happen a few tables behind you lol its not that bad really. the ask you quickly about your last job but it seems that they are more interested in whether or not you are still willing to work there after taking the tour and finding out the pay . everyone was hired. they have you sign a pre-employment contract and let you know that once the background check is complete that they will contact you for Orientation.Orientation was a breeze. .its just sitting in front of a computer for 5 hrs. all you have to do is review documents,fill in documents,and watch safety videos.bring you id/ss card and banking info (a blank check or routing info). i would recommend opening a bank account before orientation if you can. if you don't have a bank they make you use a pre-paid visa card to access your paycheck. you don't have to dress fancy but they will be taking you employee ID picture so it would good to look nice for that.oh and they give you a little gift :)

    Interview

    Good, in my case it was not a group interview. Very nice hiring manager. I guess, I was overqualified for the position. My application was benched for another department when a position became available.
