Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate
Redmond, WA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Macy's in October 2010.

Interview Details – The job application was a lengthy (20+/- minute) questionnaire on a computer and then I was notified that they would like to set up an interview with me. I went in for my interview and it basically just went back over the questions on the questionnaire but in person, my interviewer left the room and then came back saying they had a few positions they could offer me, though all would pay the same and were seasonal, and I was able to choose the one I wanted, effectively just which department I wanted to work in.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult, just a lot of behavioral questions. Most of the questions are the same just asking with different wording to see if you'll answer the same way.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in December 2011.

Interview Details – I submitted an online application to Macy's, and received an email requesting that I choose an interview time. I selected my three times and ended up getting an interview for the first time I requested. I went and spoke with the Hiring Manager, who seemed a bit harried. It seemed as though they were in the midst of a hiring blitz, so it felt as though the interview was more of a formality.

Interview Question – How would I, as an employee, react if a customer seemed to be irate?   Answer Question
