Retail Support Lead Interview

Retail Support Lead
Meriden, CT

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

Interview Details – Applied got and email a day later to come in for an interview. I scheduled the interview and came in.. Mind you I come dressed in a tie and have 3 years management experience at Sears. So much for being a classy store, the guy who interviewed me was in a polo shirt. He told me the position was filled but there was a position opened for 1 day a week unloading trucks... Is that a slap in the face or what?

Interview Question – Where do you currently work   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Because I was offered 4 hours a week

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, got a message back 5 days later for an appointment. Arrived 30 min early though I didn't get interviewed until a little after my appointed time. Greeted the interviewer, and she asked about my class schedule. Then asked the basic "Why Macy's?" and "Tell me a time when..." questions. Got rejected at the end of the interview since my classes clashed with the work times.
