Visual Merchandiser Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Orlando, FL

Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

Interview Details

As many others commented- Macy's set up my interview entirely online and when I arrived for my interview, proceeded to interview me for the wrong job. The most apathetic HR person I've ever met asked me questions directly from a wrinkled printout, in a monotone voice, until I figured out she was asking me questions for a position I never applied for. What a waste of time, what a rude HR person.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Before my scheduled interview, I received a phone call letting me know that the position had been filled but that I should come in anyway because there were other openings. We discussed a position in sales for wages plus commission. The interviewer was encouraging - telling me that with my qualifications I could move up fast.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Macy's in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found the posting on glassdoor (I think) and applied online through their platform. I got an invitation to interview a few hours after submitting my app and chose a day to come interview. I got there in early and waited in a reception room. 15 minutes after my scheduled time, a receptionist told me that the person who was supposed to be interviewing me was not in the office, and told me to come back tomorrow at the same time. I was pretty annoyed, because this was in the early afternoon, and surely they could have figured that out/notified me before I wasted all that time driving out to the mall.

    I came back the next day and interviewed with a nice guy from another local Macy's (who knows where the original person went). He was very easy to talk to and I could answer all the questions with examples from my relevant experience. I left feeling good about the interview, but I never received any other emails from Macy's - no rejection, nothing. In retrospect I'm glad I didn't get an offer, because based on my interview experience it seems like a miserable place to work.

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Macy's in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Macys contacted me within days of me applying. It was really easy to schedule the interview online. The woman who interviewed me was amazing but the job was just not a fit for me. She was very upfront about it, it was clear she was looking for something different than what I had to offer. I received an email from Macys the following day saying that I did not get the job. I must say the whole experience was really positive. I have applied to another corporate position and never heard anything, Macys was much more professional. I think anyone would rather hear yes or no than be left wondering.

    I applied online - interviewed at Macy's in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was short as my resume was really detailed. But mostly the questions were the classic questions like: What makes you applying for this job? Why did you left your previous job? What are some of your success? What are your weakness?
    The manager just ask some details about my past experiences as visual merchandiser. And what my previous manager would say about me if he would have contacted him.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email w/in 24 hrs to schedule an interview. I went in the following day for my interview and after about 20 minutes, the person working the front desk came out and asked me to come back for my interview. She actually did the interview and read all of the questions from a piece of paper (same questions as others had listed here). The job posting was taken down the day before my interview, so I was under the impression the position had been filled when I went to the interview. The following day I received an email stating I had great qualifications, but the position was filled. Judging by other reviewers answers, this must happen a lot with Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was told to schedule an interview. I was coming from out of state (the location was a place I planned on moving to) and took a bus to get there. Due to traffic, what should have been a three hour ride, became four hours, so I was 20 min late to my appointment (and since everything was done online, I had no way of contacting the interviewers). When I arrived, I explained the situation, but they refused to see me and said I had to reschedule online to a different available day. Four hours to see them specially, and they turned me away. Even if it wouldn't have been a huge inconvenience for me to reschedule, I wouldn't have, since they are obviously missing their humanity with all this online stuff.
