    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I walked into the HR office in store and was greeted by the store manager. I interviewed with the Store manager then they had the HR rep meet with me and the HR proceeded to further interview me. I was offered the job a few days later over the phone contingent on successful passing of a background check.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Got a phone call with no setup or warning, thankfully I was available to take it at the time.
    After acing the phone call with a puffed chest and bravado, got the invite to on-location interview. Pulled into a scary movie style interrogation room, where I spoke with an imposing older woman. After keeping my chest puffed out and answering all their incredibly basic questions with almost no relation to the job, I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Bunch of stuff that was incredibly dumb and basic.
      'Tell me about a time where you had a tough problem you couldn't solve but you DID' or some nonsense. You've all heard this exact kind of stuff.   1 Answer

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Easy to complete online application that was followed by a friendly phone interview. Once approved for an in-person interview scheduling was accommodating. In-person interview explained the required duties of the position and was not intimidating but, more inquisitive. Opportunity to ask relevant questions.
