    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Aventura, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    we're invited by email to schedule interview. i show up early. but still have to wait for an interviewer to arrive, and sometimes they don't even know they had someone scheduled at all... My info was put in wrong, as "sales"... and i had to repeat the process again... and do ALL the training videos again. Now i'm in, but i have yet to get any hours on my schedule... receiving Associate is a very very slim job with few hours.

    Receiving Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Sacramento, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple. There were not a lot of hard interview questions to answer. The interview took about 30 minutes or so. Attire is an important part of Macy's, so come dressed professionally to the interview. There will be others waiting to be interviewed; managers compare candidates. Arrive 10-15 minutes early; I was the first one waiting to be interviewed. Being first gave me the opportunity to talk to the managers present for the interviews. I would say being early gives an upper hand.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macy's (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got an interview request 3 days after applying online. The entire interview process took about 15 minutes at most with about 5 to 6 questions. It was very casual and the interviewer made me feel very comfortable. The only downside to my experience was that it took them nearly 3 weeks to finally get back to me (that is after I personally called them to inquire about a follow-up). Other than that, the process was fairly positive.
