    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for the full time position at North gate Macy's online, within three days was asked to schedule an in person interview. Arrived at my interview on time 11:30am, waited a few minutes for the interviewer to tell me that they were notified 11am the same day that the full time position has been filled and that they only have seasonal on call positions, clearly what I wasn't looking for. So I declined to move on further with the process. What a waste of my time and money!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's in October 2017.

    Interview

    A bit of a rushed process. The two hiring managers were interviewing other potential employees, so I was interviewed by a sales manager. He read from a paper and asked questions about my availability, customer scenarios, and previous work experience that would help with a sales associate position.
