    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valencia, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Valencia, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Honestly this interview was terrible. I went on glassdoor the day before to prepare myself, but when I got into the interview I was asked questions that I wasnt expecting at all, and they really didnt have anything to do with the position I was applying for so I was honestly confused and wanted to ask, "why are you asking me these questions when they don't relate to the position I am applying for?" haha. The person who interviewed me was also kind of rude so that automatically made the interview uncomfortable.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was short as my resume was really detailed. But mostly the questions were the classic questions like: What makes you applying for this job? Why did you left your previous job? What are some of your success? What are your weakness?
    The manager just ask some details about my past experiences as visual merchandiser. And what my previous manager would say about me if he would have contacted him.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montebello, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Montebello, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    This is the worst company to interview for. Both times I've applied for a position and by the time I go to the interview for my appointed time, the position has been filled. Why do you insist on wasting people's time or even care about having people come in for an interview if you're going to hire someone before even interviewing all candidates. I was scheduled on the day the Visual Manager wasn't even there. What a wasted.

    I'm never applying for this company again.

    Interview

    Arrived early to the hiring center it's for a store that hasn't yet opened so they were interviewing in like a cubical office space. Interview was short asked situational question what was odd was she asked me if I would taking positioning in other areas in the store which I said yes. Then at the end of the interview she said I would be called for a second interview but that there was no more visual positions open. But I don't understand why I would interviewed for a visual position if they were no longer hiring.
