    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (College Station, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in mid-April got an invitation for an interview a few days later. I accept and interviewed about half a week later on a Monday. Interview went okay. Pretty basic questions, got a little tour around the home and men's departments. Told I would be recommended for commissioned sales in jewelry (not what I was expecting) and told I would hear back in about a week. Never was contacted again and when I checked what jobs were open for application, the part time sales job was taken.

    Application

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

    Interview

    It was a 1:1 interview with a Sales Manager. We went over some basic/easy interview questions and she took notes. Most of the interview was conversational and seemed to test how you could create conversation from those questions rather than the questions themselves.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Sacramento, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email the day after that I have been picked for an interview. There was a link in the email that would instruct you to choose a day for your interview.
    At the day of the interview, I went to the store and I had to wait for like half an hour until the manager came. She read the questions of a paper and filled them up. I did not have that much experience so I think that is why I was rejected.
