Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Silver Spring, MD).

Interview

Very friendly interviewer. She was impressed by me more than the previous applicant because I stood up to shake her hand, i didn't say umm, i had a quick response to her questions and i was naturally friendly and we made small talk. These are all things she told me. She took me under her wing she was so excited to hire me!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Glendale, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email two days later. I scheduled an interview and arrived 30 minutes early. Was called in after a person was done with her interview. Do note that there were different supervisors interviewing people. Pretty much questions about myself and questions about being in situations and how would you handle them. It has been a week and I haven't heard back from them, but still hopeful. My advice is to be confident and be sure of your answers. Speak clearly and don't mumble your words. Overall it was a good experience as it was my first job interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The Group interview was brief with interestingly selected questions that were open ended. There were at least 20 in the group, so we had to answer quickly. I was surprised at how brief it was happy when they did call me to confirm that I was hired.
