Interview Questions

  • She asked no questions, just said someone else might call me. So a week later, I called her back, and she said that someone else would review my application. No one called me. An ex employee I knew called HR and reccomended me for the job. Then, I was called back in, and then she said the manager would contact me. Later on that week, the manager called me, and gave me the job.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Atlanta, GA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    My interview at Macy's was very laid back. I went in dressed up, met with a hiring manager, we discussed my past work experiences and how I'd go about handling things that could arise at Macy's. It's a pretty staight forward interview, it's not too difficult to pass. Macy's standards are pretty relaxed to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Valley Stream, NY).

    Interview

    got called back for the interview within 2 weeks. Got asked questions like, why do i want to work at Macys, Years of retail experience, How to make the store a better place, and stuff like that. After that they said they would call me, but they never call they usually email. Took about another 2 weeks for them to get back to me saying i got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here. Never answer for the money. Some people do and thats a no no. say something like the environment, the public and when it comes to holidays there is no place better to work and be, (except maybe home) throw in a joke if your interviewer is a joker and is laughing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me $8.75 and wasn't really a negotiation just told me when i would start working.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Redondo Beach, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty easy. I submitted my application online, got a call for an in person interview about 3 weeks later, and interviewed about 1 week after that. I interviewed with only 1 person and got the job on the spot. My only complaint was that the interviewer seemed like he did not want to be bothered and was irritated. Oh well, I didn't let his attitude bother me, did well enough on the interview to actually make him crack a smile! And was offered the position.

    Negotiation

    Being that the position was temp/seasonal, there was no negotiation.

She asked about 6 questions such as name a time where you were on a team and someone wasn't participating what did you do? and name a time when you saw someone doing something immoral and what did you do to stop it. she also asked about my past experiances.. She told me that they actually didn't have any spots available but she would call me if something came up. About a week later she called and offered me the position.

    • The unexpected question came when she asked me what animal would I describe myself as.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    there was no negotiating they gave you a hiring amount and that was that...I'm guessing it was because I was a college student.
