    Interview

    I got a call from Macy's asking if I had time for an interview. The whole call took about 10 minutes. The questions were pretty straight forward. I was offered the job on the spot after the questions but told them I was waiting to hear from another potential application.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Valencia, CA).

    Interview

    I applied for the position online then was prompted to schedule an interview several days later. I went in for the interview today and she asked the typical questions describe yourself, why Macy's?, describe a time when you..., and then asked for my availability. After that she did not ask many more questions. Despite that I could still accommodate the schedule she said, if you do not have completely open availability you won't get the position (at this location). I wish they would have told me that on the posting then I would not have wasted my time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Friday and got an email the following Tuesday to schedule an interview. On the day of the appointment, I checked in at the office 30 minutes early, and the lady who checked me in was very friendly. My interview started on time. The interviewer explained to me the job responsibilities and the possible hours and asked me three behavior questions, which were not difficult to answer. I wasn't asked the dreaded "Tell me about yourself" question. Overall the experience was very pleasant and relaxed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (El Cajon, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on august 2nd and got an email august 3rd
     to schedule an interview. I arrived about 10 mins early, the recieving manager was already in there talking to the receptionist. He took me back right away. He was very friendly and made it comfortable. I was asked about 3 questions and then my availability. He told me there was another position open and if I was interested in it. After the interview I was asked to go into the lobby and wait. After a few minutes I was given a paper to fill out and he asked if I accepted the pay. Now I'm just waiting for my background check to clear so I can attend an orientation. I went to macys thinking I wasn't going to get an offer after many interviews at other places and being turned down. Just be yourself , make sure to smile and be calm.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Citrus Heights, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on a Thursday and received a request to interview the following Tuesday. I then scheduled my interview for Friday. Interview was fairly quick since they scheduled them 15 minutes apart from one another and I had people waiting before and after me. She verified my address, contact info, and hours of availability before asking me about 4 or 5 basic questions that have all been said before on here. I'm glad I prepped beforehand using Glassdoor! After my interview I was told I would be contacted the following week about a second interview but the following Wednesday I received an email saying my availability didn't correspond with the days and hours needed for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Miami, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I arrived 10 minutes early for my interview scheduled at 3:45 pm. I was told that the person who was going to interview me was at another department. I kept waiting until I was informed that such person had left for the day because she leaves everyday at 3pm!!! Well, the first manager that randomly walked by that office was the one chosen to interview me. She was a nice girl but only after we were finished she informed me that my availability for the position I applied for was not possible at that location due to the size of the store... I was offered another position which I declined.

    Interview Questions
