    Interview

    Arrived early to the hiring center it's for a store that hasn't yet opened so they were interviewing in like a cubical office space. Interview was short asked situational question what was odd was she asked me if I would taking positioning in other areas in the store which I said yes. Then at the end of the interview she said I would be called for a second interview but that there was no more visual positions open. But I don't understand why I would interviewed for a visual position if they were no longer hiring.

    Retail Support - Visual Merchandising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview at HR office, Austin, TX.
    The interview was very relaxed, easy and "standardised". Indeed, the interviewer (she was super kindly and smiling! ) told me: "I'll ask you some questions that we ask to every our candidates, and I 'll report your answer in this paper". It was similar to a questionnaire. They were approximately 15-20 questions, and the flow of the interview was very quick. In some occasion, I tried to give an elaborated answers to her questions, but I understood that it was not so "necessary". The answers that she was looking for were more similar to a "check box" instead of articulated answers. The important thing is to show yourself as a good communicator, keep yourself talking for the all time of interview!
    Very simple and classic questions, like: "why Macy's", "What do you do if you see something strange in the store", "how you convince a customer to open a Macy's credit card", "describe a situation where you was inside a team", "describe a situation where you need to take difficult decision or a risk", "are you flexible" and other similar questions.

    Although I applied online for a specific position, the interview was done for the future positions.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied for a visual merchandising position and the next day received an email to schedule an interview. The day before my interview, I received an email that this position has been filled. Usually, a company will interview everyone that is scheduled and decide after.... A week later, this position came up on indeed.com so I reapplied thinking the person didn't work out or they needed another visual merchandiser. Next day, received an email to schedule an interview. When I went in for my interview the guy at the front desk said that this position has already been filled and that "they were suppose to" email people telling them that it has been filled. I explained to him what happened the prior week and he just slightly giggled and said sorry. This was very unprofessional and a waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Miami, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email fairly quickly after applying online. The email was an invitation to interview and I was able to make an interview appointment online. After making the appointment, I went to interview. The process was very smoothly, but it seemed like they were interviewing a lot of people for the job and that there was no initial "scan" on who they brought in to interview.
