Sales Associate Interview

Newington, NH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in August 2013.

Interview Details – Macy's has a revolving door attitude for their employees. Pretty much if you have a pulse and no criminal background, you'll get hired. I asked how I felt about working with the public and if my customer skills were up to the retail sales associate position. I was hired on the spot.

Interview Question – Hiring manager asked if I had ever stolen anything from a past employer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was told the job paid $8.00 per hour, no negotiation.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Macy's in March 2014.

Interview Details – My initial interview was with two supervisors for part-time Sales Associate and it went well. One supervisor suggested that I would be good in Fine Jewelry, but the supervisor for that area did not hire me. I was disappointed, but applied again for Holiday Sales Associate and was only hired, when someone else declined the job. I still have a resume' filed with Macy's Human Resource Department. When I check on my resume, I am told that it is on hold!
