Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Macy's (Santa Ana, CA) in October 2014.

Interview

Applied online and got an invite to an interview two days later. Had a 1:1 interview. The associate was very kind and talkative, in the fashion of most Macy's associates. Aside from the question about group activities, none of them were unexpected or difficult. Was asked to confirm availability, but I applied to a position that doesn't require 24/7/365 availability.

This particular location told me to wait 24-48 hrs for a yes or no response. The interview was 15 minutes long.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Macy's (Westminster, CA).

    Interview

    I came in and I think they already had the intention of hiring me. They just wanted to know if what they were offering was what I was looking for, and it was during the time. When we both came to a consensus I just had to go through all the legal requirements (applying online, background checks, etc.)

    Interview Questions

    • None. They told me about the positions available and I told them which I felt best suited for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate anything. I just wanted a job. They offered me $8.50 and I took it. I believe that is the general starting pay to date. This was a good job in the beginning, just not to stick around for a long time.

    Interview

    filled out app online and received an email within the next couple of days and set up an interview for the following week. I went in for my interview and everyone was so nice saying hi and I only had to wait about 10 minutes before I was called back. The lady that interviewed me was very nice and asked simple questions off a sheet of paper. After a couple of questions she offered me a job and told me how much I would be paid. They then do a background check and make you fill out additional paper work.

    Interview

    They was beyond sloppy, i was waiting for like a hour and it was people back and forth in & out of the office no one ever acknowledged me or even said replied back to me when i asked about my interview for that matter. Then when i was finally acknowledged the lady gave me attitude about how i should have said something earlier about having a interview. I was highly upset by now

    Interview

    It was all these people back there but no one never acknowledge me, I had to basically yell at someone walking by. The hiring manager im guessing she was, had major attitude because I had to raise my voice to get anybody's attention, it wasnt like it was multiple people waiting for a interview too
