    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    For someone equipped with extensive corp experience, and retail experience, the conversation could have been more mature rather than the template list of questions geared to inexperienced individuals. They require staff remain completely schedule flexible which is illogical for most people, especially if holding down more than one job.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back about 3 days later. Initial phone interview was screening and just basic retail related questions, then out of nowhere he offered me the position and rate of pay and told me to wait for a email with initial on boarding process. I thought it was weird but I didn’t think anything if it. So on my first day of “training” two hours in they pull me aside and said that they failed to run a background check (which I totally thought was weird)

    So they have my do this background check and say that they should know after 3-5 business days. Since this is a seasonal position I’m like SO WHEN WILL I WORK!?

    after a week I get a call about the background check needed additional information which I NEVER HEARD OF , so due to a pass arrest(from 2014J they are interrogated me like I’m a convicted felon, they made me feel so low with the questions they are asking.

    So now I have to wait for them to “ assess the situation” which is absolute bull

    FOR THE LOW PAY THIS JOB IS ACTING LIKE IT IS NOT RETAIL
