    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few weeks received an email to schedule an interview. Instructions were included in the confirmation email and I went onsite for an in-person interview. After signing in, I waited with the other candidates. One manager conducted the interview so it wasn't as intimidating and he was very friendly. Interview questions were straight-forward and used to assess level of expertise in this job field.

    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! (:

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    HR services were very organized. My interviewer’s name was Margaret. She was very sweet. She was asking me what department I’d like to work in, and she told me that she felt I would fit in best with the jewelry department. I got a offer after the interview. Until this day I’m glad Margaret interviewed me because I don’t think I would have enjoyed working in any other department as I did working in the jewelry department.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The only way in is if you are personally refereed by someone who already works there. I have applied to many positions and was even got a few phone interviews but they went no where. After "meeting" the 'right' person I was hired without and reference checks and no resume. Your experience doesn't matter you just have to be friends with the right person at the right time

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember any significant questions about my work experience; we just chatted about the mutual acquaintances   Answer Question
