    I applied for a seasonal position on Monday and received a email Tuesday telling
     me that i will received a phone call the following day. The phone rang at 9 am the next morning and they left a voice message telling to call back . I called macy's around 12:15 and she asked if we could do a over the phone interview which took like 20 mins i was on campus so it was hard finding a quiet spot. I was very nervous but i had experience at one of the stores competitors so all the questions she asked came easily.

    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.
