    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Tucson, AZ) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I waited in a room with 6 other people. People were getting called in for individual interviews. The interviewers were running behind. I had to wait a little over half an hour before getting called. The interview only lasted about 10 minutes. She only asked about half a dozen questions. After, she said I would get an email telling me whether or not I got the job.
