    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Sacramento, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Was about 10 minutes early, but the interviewer met me immediately. She was apparently new and was a little scrambled, but she was very friendly and easy to talk to. Opened the interview by asking me to tell her about myself. Then there were about 15 questions before she left the room for about 5 minutes and came back with a job offer. I accepted and then she led me to another to schedule for training and give me a briefing of what to bring on my first day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I got an email within a day or two. My interview was schedule at 2:45pm; but since I got there early, I was brought in at 2:15 pm. The interviewer was very kind, and decided that I was not fit for the role due to the fact that I was a full time college student. If you're planning to apply for the visual merchandiser position make sure that you will be able to work in the early mornings.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    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!
