    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I arrived 15 minutes early and sat in the lobby for close to an hour. I was pretty upset, but tried to keep myself relaxed. Eventually the manager came and took me to the back and began asking a few questions. However, she eventually told me she was not the right manager and thought I was there for a cosmetics position. She continued with the interview and then asked me about my availability before leaving. The actual manager came up with follow up questions and then offered me a position right then and there. She was very friendly and I really enjoyed the interview because of her as she explained everything very well.

    If you have a pulse...you're in. I forget exactly how the interview went, it was a few years ago, but I do know that it was the easiest interview I had ever been involved in. I truly do think that they hire just about anyone that walks in the door.

    Fairly simple process, they just ask you your experience in retail and how you will handle customers. Just be honest and truthful, it is a very simple interview but of course express you excitement to work there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I was hired through a phone interview. The phone interview contained personal questions mostly about prior work experience and many behavioral based "tell me about a time when" questions. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. It wasn't the hardest interview but it also wasn't the easiest. I advise to be prepared to link your experience with how you can benefit their company

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Kendall, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They ask you pretty simple questions and then ask you if you're okay with communicating and making a relationship with customers. They'll explain how the commission works (not that great though), and how you will have to use MyClient. The guy did who interviewed seemed hesitant talking about commission, seeing how it is complicated. After that, I got hired and asked me which of the following available departments I wanted. I chose and then I just filed paperwork after that.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you okay with MyClient? Calling customers, and letting them know about the latest sales.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and a week later I received an email the following week. I had a bit of trouble scheduling the initial interview, but after that it was easy. I arrived 15 minutes early, and had to sign in. Later, I was taken to another room where I met with an interviewing manager. I answered every question honestly, and even explained that there where some questions I could not answer at the time as I did not have all the information necessary. 4 days later I received another email explaining that my availability is what cost me the job.
