    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Bolingbrook, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick, not extremely formal but professional. Asked questions from a sheet of paper, typical experiences you have had with coworkers,customers, and etc. nothing surprising. I interviewed for the makeup position. But she set me up with a second interview for the shoe department and it was literally me meeting the manager and her going over the pay and asked if I wanted it.
    The training was absolutely MISERABLE 3 days you sit in front of a computer learning NOTHINGGGG the only helpful part is the POS training but of course.
