    Floater Seasonal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in West Nyack, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (West Nyack, NY).

    Interview

    The first was a face to face interview with a superior. Just to assess you and quaifications then I attended a group interview process that lasted a few hours long. Of course we had to dress business casual. I reccommend all black as that is the dress code. They showed us videos and asked questions. It was a full out presentation. It wasn't my most enjoyable interview only because of the length but it wasn't difficult either. There were about 5 interviewees.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked what if questions regarding safety and shortage control.   Answer Question

    Beauty Advisor - Lancome Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I mentioned that I had no previous retail experience, yet all of the interview questions were based on having prior experience. Wasn't surprised that I didn't get an offer. However, the recruiter shouldn't have scheduled an interview with me if they had known I had no experience (I wrote this on my resume AND cover letter).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Degrading. The completely automated and very time consuming process culminating in an automated request for an interview was like a slap in the face.
    They didn't even have the decency to make a phone call to schedule an interview - instead the automated process wanted YOU to be available as a computerized time slot was sent.
    To make it more degrading, YOU had to check back through the computer system numerous times for the slot.
    This explains why the sales help at Macy's is the worst posssible and they are closing stores left and right.
    The "face of Macy's" that works directly with customers is lazy and generally illiterate - that is if you can find a salesperson.
