    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in the morning and got an email that same day in which said when I wanted to schedule an interview. I schedule for the following week at 11:00. I got there 30 minutes early and a nice lady told me to take a seat as I waited for the hiring manager. He gets there unprepared, didn't even have my resume and cover letter that I had sent with them (Good thing I brought a copy). He then greets me, and says to wait as he went to go take a phone call. He finally got off the phone and brought me back and asked me the basic questions. It was kinda awkward, but overall it went alright. He told me I would receive a phone call in a few days instead, about 3 hours letter I got an email stating that unfortunately my availability wasn't qualified for the position I applied for. FUNNY, because I was pretty much available all week.
