Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Redmond, WA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redmond, WA
Application Details

I interviewed online. 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 Questions
  • 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

    It was easy, I applied online, and got to select an interview date. The manager was running late so I sat and I saw what the culure was like. It was very clean and organized. I had to go through a background check.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview after applying on-line for a seasonal position. The interviewer was very accommodating in that she offered me the only full-time position available because I asked for as many hours as I could get. I was hired at the end of the interview. I was only asked how much retail experience I had.

    Super easy. All questions can be found online, some questions are asked about your personal skills and how you deal with upset customers, a big one is how you would go about selling a macy's card, since theyre real serious about their cards.

    I interviewed online. 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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Macy's in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    A week after finishing online application, a manager called asked me to go in for an interview. The questions are fairly simple. They just wanted to know if you are able to use a register and know customer service. The lady manager who interviewed me told me I was too shy and the would have to take some time to consider. She called me five minutes after I left to tell me she is willing to give me a chance and to go in and fill out paperwork for employment.
