    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Covina, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (West Covina, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Thursday, got an email the next day about setting up an interview. I got to pick what time and day I wanted to be interviewed. I chose the upcoming Tuesday and I now have a job at Macy's! The interview was about 15 minutes long and the interviewer was really nice and friendly, she left the room for about a minute to review my answers and came back and offered me the position I applied for. She then told me I would receive a call to set up orientation and training, I received the call the next day! (:

    Seasonal Customer Service Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email a day later stating they wanted me to come in for an interview. The interview was about 15 to 20 minutes. They asked general customer service questions. I never worked in retail so that is probably one reason why I was not offered the job. Even though the job qualifications state that you do not have to have retail experience, I think you would have a better chance of being hired if you previously worked in retail. I think another reason is due to applying a little later than others. They probably already had people in mind of who they've wanted to hire at that time. I would definitely say that reviewing the interview questions on here helped tremendously because they were all similar to the questions asked during the interview.

    Executive Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Process included a career fair, an on-campus information session (which we were highly advised to attend if we wanted an interview), an on-campus meet & greet, an online assessment, 2 on-campus interviews, and a 2 day final on-site interview in San Francisco.

    Macy's went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and appreciated throughout the entire process. The company truly cares for all its candidates and it shows. Out of the 8+ companies that I've interviewed at, Macy's is #1 when it comes to treating their candidates well. The 2 day onsite interview was a blast! The first day was spent learning about the company, meeting people, and having a fun dinner with a few employees. The second day consists of 4 interviews. The first 2 are standard one on one behavioral interviews while the last 2 are presentations/group exercises where you are evaluated on your leadership, reasoning, and public speaking skills.

    Interview Questions

    • A question regarding dealing with difficult people   Answer Question
    • Case question that required to you to pick a stance based off of given information and then presenting it to the group   Answer Question
    • A group exercise dealing with conflict resolution and leadership   Answer Question
