    Merchandiser Seasonal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    online application, email for interview to set up time. Upon going into the office for an interview I was in an office with a man who was the Executive manager for over 15 mins without introducing himself and even after the job was offered to me I then had to ask the man his name... Was interviewed by the dept manager, and didn't introduce herself either... After being hired I was told that even though I had applied for a 5am to 2 pm position that they were changing my schedule to night shift. I was extremely disappointed that I had gone through all the paper work for the hiring process before I was informed of the change in my schedule I informed the man I would have like to have been informed of this before I gave them all of my personal information because I would have respectfully declined then.
