    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA

    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

    Interview

    I interviewed at the Brooklyn location on Fulton street. Long story short I wait a hour and 30 minutes just to be interviewed how unprofessional and top it off she comes in eating. To make matter worst the first thing she ask me is if I know what flex means as if I had no idea as to what position I'm applying for. She was very unprofessional.

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

    I came in early and was sat down by a receptionist waiting for someone to be available to interview me. The receptionist was nice and let me get coffee. A few minutes later I was put in a room and the interviewer came in with a piece of paper and began asking me questions of the paper and jotting down my answers. It took 5-10 minutes

    Interview

    I applied to the same Macy's twice.

    The first time I applied, I applied online. The very next day I got an email asking me to schedule an interview date and time. Fast forward to the day, I had to wait an extra 30 minutes because the interviewer was interviewing someone else when I got there.
    Finally it was my turn. The lady asked me questions off of a piece of paper and wrote down my responses. She asked about 5-6 basic interview questions. After that she took me on a tour around Macy's. After we were done I asked her what to expect after the interview, and she said within 2 days they would email. After 2 days I got an email rejecting me because my hours didn't work.

    I applied a second time about a week later. Got another email to schedule an interview. I went to the HR room and explained to a different manager that I've already interviewed before, but I just applied again. I didn't know if it would be the same lady that was gonna interview me or not. The same lady came out and she was gonna interview me, but decided to have the manager that I talked to first interview me. He read basically the same script as first time. I changed the hours that I could and was willing to work. He said I had to be able to work weekends, but I couldn't. He then said he would talk to HR about it and that they would email or call me. A week later, I got nothing.
