    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA
    Accepted Offer
    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?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Interview was fast to be scheduled once referred. The interview lasted about 30minutes in person and onsite. Offered the position on the spot, but did not call me to come in to work a shift. Had to call once a week for a month asking when my start day was- always got a voicemail, never an actual person on the phone.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Really simple process. On campus interviewing conducted, had two 30-minute interviews and that was it. Really great people and genuinely want to get to know you! The questions were behavioral and straightforward. No trick questions, they just want to see if you are a good fit for the company and its culture.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was friendly, but had very generic interview questions. The interviewer was kind and very professional and seemed to enjoy her job. She started off by being upfront about the varying hours, which I appreciated, then asked if I would like to continue with the interview. I explained that the hours would not work well for my schedule, but we continued anyway. She asked a variety of behavioral questions, then explained the tasks of the job in more detail.
