Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Macy's (Cherry Hill, NJ) in May 2015.

Interview

Applied , received a email to schedule a interview within two days . Went to the interview , was hired on the spot. Sounds great right ? WRONG right after I left the interview I was told I wouldn't be working in the area I just got hired for
But a lesser position as a recovery person. Only accepted the position because I was desperate for a summer job.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westminster, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    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.

    filled out app online and received an email within the next couple of days and set up an interview for the following week.

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.
