    Asset Protection Detective Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Torrance, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Do not apply to Macy's- Applied online. Received email to schedule phone interview. When time for phone interview came NO ONE CALLED FOR OVER AN HOUR. I had to call to find out what happened, the woman who answered assured me "someone would call" me back without taking my name or the position I had applied/called for, and no time frame. So I get a voicemail later saying how "busy and understaffed" they are and to give a call back. So I call and no one answers. Now we're in phone tag. A different person calls and says the interviewer would have more time available the following morning only at a certain time and if I could call then. I did, the interview was basic questions, then says I will get a call or email to follow. So I get an email saying they can't proceed with the application. After ALL THAT, are you kidding me? The same application you bothered to try to interview me about after completely ignoring the scheduled interview time, and then making me reschedule it? Put me through that for what? It is not hard to see WHY they are understaffed. Even as a previous employee I receive this treatment; this is not the way you treat people. Macy's is a [horrible company to work for] and they will continue to close down locations until they are extinct like Robinson's May, a time which is rapidly approaching.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a sales job on Saturday, and got an email on Monday asking to schedule an interview. I chose Wednesday, and showed up on that day. I arrived 15 minutes early, and only had to wait 10 minutes before I was interviewed. They asked a variety of situational questions based on prior experience in retail (which is easy if you have at least some experience). If you do some research on other interviews people have gone through like I did before you get called in, and answer them truthfully by being your best self, you're in good shape. Don't be afraid to keep the conversation going with your interviewer, the more honest you are and the more information you provide, the better. All in all, as long as you have some experience in retail and are comfortable and familiar with its responsibilities, as well as good social skills, the interview should be very easy. Got hired on the spot for a position I was interested in.

    Interview Questions

    • Was there a time you observed something wrong being done either by a coworker, a customer, or someone else? And if so, how did you deal with it?   Answer Question
