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

    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

    The interview started on scheduled time. There were a lot of people around in the room, so I didn't feel myself alone. The whole process had a comfortable atmosphere. Manager was so nice and friendly. It was about 20 minutes. Questions were exactly the same as I saw on this site. I appreciate it. I had time to prepare. So, my advice: prepare for the interview and don't worry, just be open, relax and honest.
