    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Macy's (Bel Air, MD).

    Interview

    Quite typical in the clothing retail industry. I had two phone interviews, 1:1 in person interview with the department manager then the store manager by getting hired. You will have to go through a training which takes a couple/few days (depending on your productivity). Then BAM! Your oh the sales floor in action.
