    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Paso, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (El Paso, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and then I got an email to schedule an interview. They were actually tough questions for me. But it was dumb though because I got an email back saying I did not meet the availability qualifications even though I pretty much said I had open availability. They could've just told me I did not qualify overall instead of emailing a generic lie.

    Fine Jewelry Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vero Beach, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Vero Beach, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Easy and comfortable. You can talk to the administrators like they're people. They did a second interview on the spot. My position wasn't available at that time due to some sort of site error on their jobs site, so I was reinterviewed by a really nice guy for a Sales Lead position. Things didn't work out for me so well in the second interview, but in spite of that they liked me and offered me a position in women's shoes. I accepted their offer and begin tomorrow. Just letting people know; the key to successful sales is to be your best self. Success lies with your ability to be organic and real. I feel like I made friends through the process. Good luck everyone!

    Sales Associate/Cashier, Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I went 15 mts early
    Main thing about retail job is your availability weekday evenings and the weekends
    If you are not available that time then you won't get the job for sure
    The online process asks for your availability
    But when we go for the interview they will say they need you in different timings
    They won't interview saying they need u in the weekends
    The lady who interviewed me didn't continue to ask questions since I chose I am not available for weekends
    Then I had to convince her that the online application didn't mention anywhere that weekends is a must
    I thought I will get the job for sure
    But ☹️ No

    It's almost a week I didn't get any call back

    Waiting!!!
