    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Houston, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and then a couple of hours later I got an email asking to schedule an interview. I schedule it for a week later. I went 30 minutes early and was asked to wait which was fine since I knew my interview was later on. It came time for my interview but they kept me still waiting. The interviewee came 15 minutes after the planned time which I don't think was professional. She asked me why Macy's, my experience, and that was pretty much it. It wasn't a great interview. The woman stared at me for like 5 seconds after I finished talking which was weird. Said she still had other people to interview so she said she'd give me a call. It's only been 2 days and haven't heard back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Honolulu, HI) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email the next day to schedule an appointment, and about one week later I did my interview. I'm a seasonal employee and have returned to Macy's multiple times at my home store when I go back home after a semester of college. I needed extra money this semester so I applied to another store for more convenience to where I live for college. I was more than prepared for the interview and showed how experienced and familiar I was with Macy's. However, at the end of the interview, the manager said that they are still going through other candidates and if there are other job openings available, she will try to put me in. However, I knew just from her body language and tone that I was not going to be offered the job. They must have had their own previous employees apply for the job and just transferred them. On top of that, despite them telling me that they would get back to me and liked how experienced I was with Macy's, they did not. I am disappointed at how they didn't follow up and made me wait an extra week. Since I knew I was not going to be offered the job I applied for other places during the period of waiting and I got another retail job; however, it would have been of more convenience to work somewhere that I was already familiar with.

    About 8 minutes long. I interviewed with an Administrative Team associate, not an actual store manager. Macy's uses a criteria form, so you get asked common retail interview questions, which you can easily prepare for in advance..
