    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.
