Macy's Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfield, CA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Fairfield, CA).

Interview

I applied online and eventually got an email that took me to a calendar to set up a date and time, and with detailed instructions on how to get to the interview room through the store. I really liked that, I wish more placed did that.

The interviewer wasn't unfriendly or rude, but he also didn't feel very approachable or easy to talk to. It was a pretty clinical and to-the-point interview. I was asked some basic questions. Why did I want to work there, did I have experience, etc. I was asked what I thought about what associates say when they approach me to help. I think I may have bombed it there, because I actually rarely went into Macy's, so I had no idea what to say. My advice would be to actually shop at Macy's before applying, which in retrospect is sort of common sense. Whoops.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email the next morning saying I had been selected for an interview. I chose an interview time that was a few days later and met with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was very friendly and made me feel comfortable during the interview.The interview itself was very generic and easy. I ended up getting a job offer in the manager's department (cosmetics/fragrances). The whole thing lasted less than 20 minutes with the majority of it consisting of the manager telling me what to expect during training and my first day.
