    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and received an email within the next day or two to schedule an interview. I arrived 15 minutes early where there were others waiting in HR for different reasons. The man I interviewed with was very friendly and easy to talk to, and had a great sense of humor--something I always look for wherever I choose to spend my time! I was hired on the spot after a brief interview.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    Was a breeze, as long as you're honest and be yourself. Show personality and don't be stiff. Don't be too desperate. Get there at least fifteen minutes early. I was hired on the spot. Dress in all black with dress shoes. Be ready to answer experience based questions, such as an experience of showing "integrity"

    I applied online on Sunday, and received an interview invite the following day. I scheduled my interview for the next day at 4:30PM. I arrived about 15-20 mins early and waited in the lobby. My interviewer was very warm welcoming and friendly. He asked about 5 questions and my availability. He gave me the run down of the different positions and offered me a position.
