    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got an email letting me know they were interested. You have to set up your own appointment and it might take some time because interview slots fill up quick. The interview itself was really easy. Be prepared to answer questions concerning the department you want to work in, availability and so on. I was asked to describe a place that provided me with really good customer service and why that service was good. Simple questions, the interview was about 10-15 mins.

    It was a very easy interview process. You need to have fashion sense and knowledge but not much. Must be outgoing and easy to get along with during the process.

    Interview Details

    The interview was quick and lasted about ten minutes. It was one on one, and two other people were being interviewed around the same time I was for the same position. All of the questions I had been asked can be found on glassdoor. One I applied online, I received an email the following day asking me to log into my account and schedule an interview. The earliest interview I could schedule was about two weeks out. I was hired on the spot, but then was told that I would have to wait for my background check to process. It tool about another week before they called me and had me go in for training.
