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

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.

Seasonal Sales Associate
Providence, RI

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

Interview Details – After having applied online I was sent an email asking me to pick a date for my interview. That day I had to go to the administrative office in the store and wait for a bit for another person to be done with their interview. Once one of the managers was available, he came out and greeted me and took me into his office. He basically asked me about my previous jobs, and if I would give priority to Macy's over my other current job. The other questions asked were about where I would prefer to work in the store? why I chose that area? How I would sell a purse to a costumer? what would I say to persuade her? And that was pretty much it, it was very simple and that same day I was told were and when I would start working.

Interview Question – About how I would deal with an upset costumer.   View Answer
