    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL).

    Interview

    HR manager very friendly. Willing to give you an opportunity. So sad they don't train as you expect, they lack of standards operation procedures, they don't follow up after interviews, you need to be calling to updates.

I arrived at the office around 1:30 and signed in and gave the paper to the secretary. After about an hour she notified me that the interview was at the other macys building.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    we're invited by email to schedule interview. i show up early. but still have to wait for an interviewer to arrive, and sometimes they don't even know they had someone scheduled at all... My info was put in wrong, as "sales"... and i had to repeat the process again... and do ALL the training videos again. Now i'm in, but i have yet to get any hours on my schedule... receiving Associate is a very very slim job with few hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview didn't start as scheduled, it actually started two hours later. When the interview started I was notified that the position was already filled and they asked me if I wanted to apply to other position, unfortunately I wasn't interest on that offer so I declined. Anyway they asked me a couple of behavioral questions. It was short and easy. The interviewer was really nice, she was sorry for all the time I had to wait.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to vome in for an interview. I have no experience in retail and I am in high school so I'd only be able to work in the evenings on weekdays and I'm free all day on weekends. I was basically told I'm good for retail but my availability makes it difficult for me to work in retail. I was told that they attempt to place me in the "Support" department.

    Interview Questions

    • Many scenarios were being asked. "How would you meet your sales goal for that day", "what would you do if you saw an coworking doing something unethical", "how would you get someone to sell something they can afford" and "how would you ask someone to open a Macy's card."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very short and to the point. If you apply for seasonal and have some type of sales background and customer service, THEY WILL HIRE YOU. I didn't have any, but i made up some and answered the questions. I prepared by reading some reviews on glassdoor, and all of the questions i read on here were the exact same ones they asked. You may not get the position you apply for. I applied for cosmetics and got a position in shoes.
