    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was a two-part interview. The first was a behavioral interview going through my resume and a few other basic questions. The second part was a practical example with store management where you had to pick a store to help and justify why.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The job description for this role was somewhat misleading, and gave the impression that this was a full time, manager-level role dealing with customer service and/or employee relations. After some discussion with the HR manager however, it became clear that the position was in essence an entry level sales associate and would be responsible for using the register, pricing merchandise, stocking/resetting the sales floor and maintaining sales racks. Also, full time for this role was defined as 28-35 hours per week, paid hourly, working 5 days/off 2 per week with a mandatory Saturday or Sunday and at least two evening shifts.

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I got there at the time of my interview and let them know via phone that I was here and testy for my interview. They told me to wait in the lobby and they'll let me know when they're ready. I waited about half an hour and I saw a woman walk into HR and she came back out and called my name. She took me into a room and had sheets of papers filled with questions and asked me all of them. After the interview she said I'd be a good fit to work at Macy's but they didn't have any open positions for me because they have had a hiring fair the day before I came in. That really aggravated me because they had me come in to interview for no reason AND they were late. The interviewer put me on the "bench" where it's like a waiting list for jobs and she said she'd contact me if any jobs had opening which happened often and to see if I was still interested. The interview process itself was the worst experiences that I've ever had. Also putting into consideration, it was only the second day on the job of the person who had interviewed me.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    This by far had to be the best interview I have had. As soon as I arrived I was surrounded by very nice associates. Someone even apologized for my wait since the interviewer was a little late. However she was extremely kind and asked simple questions. The questions were from a packet that looked like something corporate creates for interviews. I responded with honest answers. It must have lasted no longer than 20 minutes. It was very comfortable and I left feeling good and not intimidated.
