Beauty Advisor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Riverside, CA).

Interview

The process was rather fast. She asked me why I wanted to work for the company while walking to the interviewing room. She also asked about availability.I felt like the interview process was more of a fast pace. I think she looked at my previous experience and thought I would be a good candidate. I still have to interview with the brand although she gave me to brand options. From there I am supposed to interview with the talent plus?

    Interview

    I interviewed at the Brooklyn location on Fulton street. Long story short I wait a hour and 30 minutes just to be interviewed how unprofessional and top it off she comes in eating. To make matter worst the first thing she ask me is if I know what flex means as if I had no idea as to what position I'm applying for. She was very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I waited for about 10 minutes before my interviewer came in. Overall the process was as normal as it could be. Questions were standard. At the end of the interview, my interviewer told me that she loved my energy and that she'll get in touch with me soon. I tried to get a number to call, so she brought me back into the main office but then she kind of shooed me out of the room before giving me a number. It's been about a week and a half since the interview and I haven't heard either a yes or no.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Gainesville, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied over the weekend and was invited to do an interview the next day. I arrived about 10-15 minutes early, everyone was very warm and welcoming, The interviewer was incredibly nice as well. The only thing is the position had already been filled and I wish I was told beforehand cause it was honestly a great interview and I really wanted the position. She said they would keep my application on file.

    Interview

    I got there at the time of my interview and let them know via phone that I was here and testy for my interview. They told me to wait in the lobby and they'll let me know when they're ready. I waited about half an hour and I saw a woman walk into HR and she came back out and called my name. She took me into a room and had sheets of papers filled with questions and asked me all of them. After the interview she said I'd be a good fit to work at Macy's but they didn't have any open positions for me because they have had a hiring fair the day before I came in. That really aggravated me because they had me come in to interview for no reason AND they were late. The interviewer put me on the "bench" where it's like a waiting list for jobs and she said she'd contact me if any jobs had opening which happened often and to see if I was still interested. The interview process itself was the worst experiences that I've ever had. Also putting into consideration, it was only the second day on the job of the person who had interviewed me.
