    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.
