    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Interview was fast to be scheduled once referred. The interview lasted about 30minutes in person and onsite. Offered the position on the spot, but did not call me to come in to work a shift. Had to call once a week for a month asking when my start day was- always got a voicemail, never an actual person on the phone.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Really simple process. On campus interviewing conducted, had two 30-minute interviews and that was it. Really great people and genuinely want to get to know you! The questions were behavioral and straightforward. No trick questions, they just want to see if you are a good fit for the company and its culture.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was friendly, but had very generic interview questions. The interviewer was kind and very professional and seemed to enjoy her job. She started off by being upfront about the varying hours, which I appreciated, then asked if I would like to continue with the interview. I explained that the hours would not work well for my schedule, but we continued anyway. She asked a variety of behavioral questions, then explained the tasks of the job in more detail.

    Interview

    Sat with the Cosmetics Manager for 15 minutes. Was very nervous, so try not to be nervous. They expect some experience in sales. The manager asked basic questions and wrote my responses down. Overall, a laid-back interview. I was myself.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in the morning and got an email that same day in which said when I wanted to schedule an interview. I schedule for the following week at 11:00. I got there 30 minutes early and a nice lady told me to take a seat as I waited for the hiring manager. He gets there unprepared, didn't even have my resume and cover letter that I had sent with them (Good thing I brought a copy). He then greets me, and says to wait as he went to go take a phone call. He finally got off the phone and brought me back and asked me the basic questions. It was kinda awkward, but overall it went alright. He told me I would receive a phone call in a few days instead, about 3 hours letter I got an email stating that unfortunately my availability wasn't qualified for the position I applied for. FUNNY, because I was pretty much available all week.
