    Beauty Advisor Interview

    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?
