Interview Details

Just your basic behavioral questions -- nothing tricky. The frustrating part was that after I went in for an in person interview, they never responded back again. I even followed up by e-mail, but never received any response. It would be nice for them just to give me any form update -- instead of having no reply.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Macy's in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview at Macy's was very laid back. I went in dressed up, met with a hiring manager, we discussed my past work experiences and how I'd go about handling things that could arise at Macy's. It's a pretty staight forward interview, it's not too difficult to pass. Macy's standards are pretty relaxed to me.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked no questions, just said someone else might call me. So a week later, I called her back, and she said that someone else would review my application. No one called me. An ex employee I knew called HR and reccomended me for the job. Then, I was called back in, and then she said the manager would contact me. Later on that week, the manager called me, and gave me the job.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Macy's in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and recieved an e-mail saying they would like to interview me. A week later I went in for my interview and the manager was very nice.. She asked about 6 questions such as name a time where you were on a team and someone wasn't participating what did you do? and name a time when you saw someone doing something immoral and what did you do to stop it. she also asked about my past experiances.. She told me that they actually didn't have any spots available but she would call me if something came up. About a week later she called and offered me the position.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Macy's in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received email to set up interview a week or so later. Interviewer didn't have my application because it "wouldn't print", so knew nothing about me with the exception of my name. Thankfully, I had shown up with a resume.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were schedule-related, logistics, availability. Only one "Explain what you would do..." question. It was concerning time constraints on the job. Oh, and there was, of course the "Tell me about yourself?"   Answer Question

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    got called back for the interview within 2 weeks. Got asked questions like, why do i want to work at Macys, Years of retail experience, How to make the store a better place, and stuff like that. After that they said they would call me, but they never call they usually email. Took about another 2 weeks for them to get back to me saying i got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work here. Never answer for the money. Some people do and thats a no no. say something like the environment, the public and when it comes to holidays there is no place better to work and be, (except maybe home) throw in a joke if your interviewer is a joker and is laughing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me $8.75 and wasn't really a negotiation just told me when i would start working.
