    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA
    Accepted Offer
    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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Interview was fast to be scheduled once referred. The interview lasted about 30minutes in person and onsite. Offered the position on the spot, but did not call me to come in to work a shift. Had to call once a week for a month asking when my start day was- always got a voicemail, never an actual person on the phone.

    Applied online to the position. The next day got an email that i would be interviewed over the phone today. Unfortunately, i missed the call and later received an automatic email to call at the given number for interview. I called the "job application helpline" and talked to the representative and she asked if i am willing to take interview at the moment, which i accepted. Answer all the questions and whole processes lasted about 15min. Then she offered me the job. Informed me about onboarding process, pay rate and details like employee discount etc..
