    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The process starts in store or online. One can apply online or head to the stores executive office to apply through a computer station. Once the application is submitted and is chosen for an interview the individual will be met by a manger or two, along with an HR supervisor. It helps to dress up after all this is an upscale department store unlike a marshalls/kohls. After the interview process if the person is chosen for a position they will undergo a mandatory 1-2 day computer/register training whether they are returning or starting a new. After which they are placed on the floor within a designated area and proceed to create moments, open up star rewards, and build sales.

    Interview Questions
    • Prior examples of conflict resolution with customers/ co-workers/ managers.

      Good/bad qualities about yourself.

    Negotiation Details
    Not much of a negotiation. I had come from the suburbs and the offered salary was substantially higher than my prior retail job so there was no reason to bargain on my end.

    Interview Details

    Web based testing and application then multiple interviews, go through security like a criminal, then find a hidden office on your own, answer weird questions, etc..... I was hoping for an intellectual conversation but the questions were quite basic and immature

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    My experience was relatively simple and easy. I applied online, and within a few days I was invited by email to interview. I was interviewed by a manager, which took about 30 minutes. It may have simply been the manager I was interviewed by and that I had experience in retail and customer service so it went more quickly. During my time working there I saw a lot of people applying via the computers in the office.
