    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.
