    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Macy's (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Robotic. Hiring manager had a stack of applications and I was one of them. Mgr asks you standard questions and does not look at your resume - don't bother printing it out. The standard questions did not apply to me and I had no way to make sense of this interview because I did not have previous experience in this role.

    Interview Questions

    • I prepared for this interview by looking at the interview questions provided by other glassdoor users. They're exactly the same. Why Macy's? Are you comfortable touching other ppl's faces? Etc..   Answer Question

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Alpharetta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I got to to Macy's about 10 minutes early for my appointment. The interviewer was 10-15 minutes late. She didn't have a copy of my resume so, I gave her one. After reading over it she said I was very impressive and she thought this was a sales interview. She then went outside the room, but within ear shot, to ask if the VM manager was available to speak with me. I overheard some one telling her that they didn't have any VM positions and if she had asked if I wanted to interview for anything else. He then ran down a list of sales departments that were hiring part time. She returned and told me what he said and I asked to speak to the VM manager anyway to introduce myself for later consideration. She was very excited to take him my resume for him to review. She said he was working on the floor but was very interested in me and wanted me to email my resume. So, it may not prove to be a complete waste of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Dunwoody, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Super easy. They didn't ask me any questions at all because they already hired someone else 3 days ago for the job.

    I was told the reason the job was still showing open online is because they were waiting on a new hire's background check to clear.

    Administrative Support Team Member Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Alpharetta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I submit an application for their AST position on a Friday and received an interview invitation via email the following Monday. Picked a time for the interview and showed up 10 minutes early.

    Upon arriving, I was greeted by a receptionist in their executive offices. A few minutes later a department manager took me into a room for the interview. She went through the, fairly lengthy, interview questions and confirmed with me that I was interested in the AST role. Once she finished asking questions, she told me "let me go talk to someone about the position." She returned about a minute later telling me that the HR manager informed her that they are not actually hiring for the administrative support team, but they had various sales and stock positions available if I were interested.

    The entire interview was a waste of my time as they did not even have the position I applied for. This company need to let applicants know ahead of time if the job they apply for isn't open, or maybe not post positions that don't exist at the store.

The interviewer explained to me the job responsibilities and the possible hours and asked me three behavior questions, which were not difficult to answer.
