Interview

fairly easy and quick, questions were more personal and about myself in order to understand my potential as an employee. most questions were about scenarios that i would have with a client and how i would handle those scenarios, as well as questions about my past work experience in retail and beauty.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Riverside, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Took a while for someone to open the office door for me and even longer to see me. Everyone walked by as if I wasn’t there. I honestly almost left after 30 minutes of waiting. The cosmetics manager wasn’t there so another department manager interviewed me. It went by pretty quick and I had an alright experience. The manager was very friendly and easy to talk to. Listen to the questions carefully because there are mainly 3 parts to each question they ask, so make sure you answer them completely.

    Interview

    My last interview with macy's was unprofessional. No only did he not ask me about any of my strengths but he kept talking the whole time about goals at the counter and after he was done he had the nerve to tell me that I will not be getting the job because it has already been filled! so why invite me in for an interview? complete waste of my time

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Birmingham, AL) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The only reason I didn’t have the best experience was because they made a 20 minute interview take an hour and a half because they were so unorganized. My interview was scheduled for 11am and I didn’t even speak to anyone until 11:40. I felt that they didn’t value my time and it was extremely unorganized. As soon as the interview was over they offered me a position other than what I applied for. I felt like they could have told me they were going to hire from within the beauty department before I wasted almost 2 hours of my day at the interview.
