    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Marlborough, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It took about 15 minutes
    They asked basic questions, just answer confidently.
    For me it seemed quick but since I answered confidently she already told me I would be hired after I passed the background check. If they ask you a question and you have never been in that situation don't lie and tell them that you haven't been put in a situation like that before and they will happily move on.

    Interview

    I applied online for a seasonal position and received an email the next day. I was interviewed over the telephone by an HR rep of the company and at the end of the call they offered me the job and told me that I would be contacted by the store I applied at to schedule training hours. I went in for one training session, at the end of the day I met my manager, she walked me around the store told me my duties and basic need to know things. She even asked me if I was planning to stay after the holiday season and if I was able to work the next day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Livingston, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was a little odd. When I first arrived to Macy's, I went to the location of the store that they told me to go to in the directions and when I got there the people asked me my name and what department that I was being interviewed for. I told them Support and I overheard them say that they didn't have anyone available to interview me. They called around the store, and eventually I was interviewed and I was asked a lot of scenario questions. At the end of my interview, the woman said that she thinks I would be a great fit for the position and that she wanted me to come back the following Wednesday for another interview with the Support Team Manager. When I came back for my second interview, I was hired on the spot and process for my background check, I start tomorrow. The whole process took two weeks.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Nanuet, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Quick and Easy, they were just more interested inhering for the seasonal position. The manager was very friendly. It did not feel like an interview whatsoever, it was more about telling me about the job and what my availability would be. I already knew I was hired the moment I started speaking with her.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Joliet, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Their interview process is a waste of time. They take forever to call you after you interview. But the worse part is , when you go to the interview they tell you the job you are interested in is not available, even though it is clearly posted on the list of open positions. So basically, it is a waste of time!!!! Then they tell you they "bench" you which means when and IF the position opens, they will call you, but they don't. You end up calling them, and them they act like they have no idea what you are talking about.
