    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The interview is brief and takes place in the administrative offices. One of the managers will sit down with you in an office and ask you a pretty standard litany of interview questions. From my experience, hiring takes place on the spot. Waiting for a call back is a formal "no".

    Product Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with HR then about two weeks later an in person interview with HR and a quick meeting with the Talent Director on the same day. The day after that an interview with the Design Director and Senior Designer.

    Was told during my quick meeting with the Talent Director that the position was going to pay about 8k less a year than the salary I was looking for and told HR over the phone as well as 10mins prior in our sit down interview. When I asked about this I was told that was "all that was budgeted" and asked if I wished to "continue the interview" or would it "be a problem". I decided to continue our meeting and followed up with HR to confirm the salary being offered. HR confirmed the original salary and stated the Talent Director was mistaken, however it all seemed sketchy.

    The next day I met with the Design Director and Senior Designer. Typical questions and a very pleasant interview. I was told I would get a quick assignment that would mostly consist of looking at their existing products and identifying areas for design opportunity.

    The next day I got an email from HR with the design project which consisted of my designing products for them including technical drawings.

    I declined to continue the process. I lied and said I was offered another position. The salary and being asked to do design work before hiring is not something I except out of a company this large.

     After that I was to complete a sample designs. Was told in the interview that it would be more or of a write up identifying design opportunities within collections.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Short Hills, NJ).

    Interview

    I got a mail by mail to schedule an interview. I practiced and rehearsed hard and went to the interview. I got there 20min. early, and waited for about 40 minutes. The person in the executive offixe didn’t know that there was an interview. After all the waiting somebody came to me and said there is no visual job opened now.
    They should have called me or mailed me earlier, or at least tell me when I got there.
    It was very unprofessional and rude.. Total waste of time !

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    One phone interview with HR, then an in-person interview with the team manager who also presented a case study as a skills test. After the in-person interview, I contacted both the HR representative and the Manager directly via email about once a week for a month. Since I was a personal referral, I didn't expect to be ghosted. They filled the position and I never heard back from them, very unprofessional.

    Interview

    easy, relaxed. the interviewer wasn't really looking for much. Basically walk in and sit down and she asks very basic questions and you give pretty generic answers. They will then talk to about the role and if you are offered the role they will do it immediately
