The first was supposed to be a group interview. but i arrived early, and they proceeded to do a one on one interview. I first met with the head of HR, and it was friendly, straight to the point, and lasted a total of 8 minutes. The second interview came a week later where i met with a floor manager, once again it was brief, friendly and i was offered the job on the spot.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back process. A few questions to see how you handle customers and how you push for sales and if you are competitive enough for a commission environment. The interview is generally friendly and wants to check out how well you interact with people since the position requires a lot of person to person interaction. They are also checking for how quickly you think on your feet to see if you can solve problems quickly. Over all, it is a pretty good interview and with minimal preparation, you should be successful.
