Beauty Advisor Interview

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?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a email asking if I was interested in applying for full time position at the flushing location and if I was to fill out the application then reply back to email.This location only have a certain race of people working there but I figured she went over my application and notice what I put as my ethnicity. To make a long story short I get there she run through the questions complimented me on my make up and suggested another location that was way to far from me. I basically got denied the job because of my race. I received a email saying I didn't have open availability and I did. These people need to do there job if she went over my application like she was suppose to this wouldn't have happened. This was very disheartening they shouldn't wast people time.

    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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Modesto, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in their website, found a couple of openings so I tried. After 24 hours, I got an email saying I am invited for an interview so I scheduled using the link in the email. The day of my interview came, got in the HR dept which is inside the dept store, I came 20 mins early then the counter manager interviewed me. It was pretty fast and informal. I answered all the questions very well without statering. She is writing down all my answers while I'm talking. After the interview I asked how soon are they looking to fill in the position then she said this is only a preliminary interview then will call you and let you know if there is a position available soon. I don't know what that means. I just have to wait I guess.
