    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Allentown, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was fairly easy. I had a positive experience as the Beauty Sales Manager and I were both from NYC. The questions were not hard if you have experience in sales and/or beauty. Knowledge of beauty products is not a requirement. However, the sales aspect is something that is important to land this position. Still waiting back from them :)

    Retail Support Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (San Antonio, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and I received an email within the next two days asking me to come in for an interview. I arrived 5 minutes early, but the interviewer didn't call me in till 15 min after my scheduled interview time. After asking me a bunch of questions about my experience with working on a team and why I wanted to work at Macy's, the interviewer asked me if I could come in at 5:30 am and work till 3:30 pm when she had a copy of my availability that I filled out online. I don't why she called me in for an interview when I mentioned on my application that I could not come in before 1:00 pm due to a conflicting schedule of another job. Waste of my time and energy.

    Sales Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (San Jose, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Today my interview appointment was scheduled at 3p.m. I came in 2:45, because I like to come earlier. They said me to wait until 3. I didn't mind, but when it was already 3:10 I was very suprised, that person, who should assist me didn't do that. I was patient and was waiting for. They said me, that interviewer on his lunch and I have to wait. When it was 3:24 another girl came in and said, that her interview should be at 3:30, I said that mine at 3. We were sitting and waiting for someone. Finally, they came at 3:40 and invited the girl to come in and said me to wait until they will interview her. I was shocked. I just left. It was the worst interview forever.Come there was just waste of my time. And I will never come to Macy’s, even as a customer.
