    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The online process is done online. HR will send an email informing you to pick a date and time for your interview, if selected. The interview is situational-based. If the first interview was successful then you will be called in for a second interview. The second interview will be with the manager of the department you may be interested in. I was told I have to start somewhere so the manager granted me the job during my second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember actually. I don't think I was asked a difficult or unexpected question.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    Applied online, was later contacted via email about scheduling an interview. Logged on and wasn't able to set up a time yet. It took about two days of constantly logging on to finally be able to set an appointment for an interview. Arrived 10 mins early, followed the directions given to me on the appointment reminder......only to find NO ONE was in the offices or at the front HR desk area. Finally it was about 4 mins before the interview that someone finally asked me what I was doing, and finally had someone page the manager who was suppose to interview me. Kinda unprofessional. Her excuse was that she was 'never in her office'..really? So how am I suppose to get in contact with you?? Red flag immediately popped up in my mind. Then the interview started in the office. Simple, routine questions...nothing too hard or difficult. Then I was informed that the position I applied for I actually wasn't qualified to get. And was asked if I would be interested in on-call or part-time positions in other departments. I said sure. So the interviewer said that my application will be kept for other positions, and to call back every week or so and check in. Basically a very nice way of saying they don't want to hire me. I left feeling like I wasted my time. Called back a few times since then and with no answer or reply back. NOT PROFESSIONAL AT ALL!
