    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Was interviewed by a manager, and she asked pretty standard questions like "Tell me of a time that you had to help achieve a goal in a previous position", "Why do you want to work here?", and "Which department do you want to work in, why, and how would you help customers in that area?"

    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

    Interview was scheduled online. They tried calling to change it, but didn't pickup on multiple call back attempts. Interview was very cookie cutter. The interview lasted about 25 minutes even though it was a 15 minute block.

    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.

    There are 2 interviews to this process. A standard interview and one from the manager of the department you'll work in. If you act smart and prepared you'll be hired, if you don't care you'll be hired, if you mentally challenged 75% chance you'll be hired, if you don't care and you're crazy and you smell 74% chance you'll be hired.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I got a 2nd interview after meeting with a cosmetic rep. I was 15 minutes early at HR and followed the instructions on the phone. No one answered the extension. I called 3x and llft a message. It was 5 minutes past my interview appointment and no one came out. I asked a worker that came out of the locked door to let someone know i was there. A man came and interviewed me in a private room. He was very nice. Asked me basic interview questions. "Why do you want to work for Macy's? " He said i did well, but i was not available during the hours they needed full time which was all hours. It would have been nice to get that information before the 2nd interview so that both our times would not have been wasted.
