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

Interview Details

If they call you in for an interview, it is more than likely that you've already gotten the job. They ask pretty basic questions, nothing that wasn't far from the normal interview questions. i.e "Why do you want to work for our company? , What do you consider to be some of your strengths, etc. " It is a great job for beginners to gain experience in the customer service field.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    It was easy, I was invited to interview via email, got interviewed and was asked about upselling and what department I wanted to work in. The interviewer was nice and we really connected. She asked typical questions, "tell me about yourself" "why do you want to work here?" I basically had the first and second interview the same day. After I told her what department I wanted to work in she had the department manager come in and talk to me for a little bit, I signed some paper work and then I was hired.

    Interview Details

    I came in met with the hiring manager talked for about 20 minutes and that was it. Didn't get the job because i didn't have enough sales experience. Hiring manager was nice but didnt really give a chance for you to really answer the questions.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    Asked me a few simple questions. Very personable. I dressed well, they treated me with respect... It was very informal. Took about 15-20 minutes. I honestly felt smarter than the manager who was interviewing me. They hired me on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email the next day, inviting me to come interview. I could choose the time. One-on-one interview in private office. Interviewer wrote down all my answers. Standard interview questions. With a bit of common sense, it is fairly easy. There was time afterwards for my questions, and I was offered my choice of 2 jobs on the spot. Low pay and no negotiation at all, but commissions should bump it up a bit.

    Interview Details

    First is the long on-line application with the personality testing, then you are asked to come in. Interviews were fine, if they don't give you the whole story. Didn't give full process or explain training, when hours could be picked up. Sort of like they were telling half the story.
