    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Northridge, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 minutes early for my interview, and sat in the Human Resources office for 15 minutes until I was finally interviewed. My name was called, and I was led into an office where my interviewer shut the door. I personally felt as though she was rushing things along and appeared to be in a bit of a hurry, being as she read the majority of the interview questions so quickly that I had to ask her to repeat the beginning of one of the questions. Over-all, this interview had the potential to be a lot more enjoyable had someone else been conducting it.
