Told them I would be in town for the summer. They stopped the interview right away and told me they didn't need me for the position. Was very unprofessional and wouldn't recommend working or interviewing here.

    Interview

    I had a one-on-one interview with the manager of the department that I was going to be working in. The process was straightforward. After waiting a few minutes for the manger to come, we went into a conference room where she asked several questions pertaining to my experience working and personal attributes. They were basic "interview questions" that can be looked up online and easily prepared for.

    Interview

    It went extremely well and was very quick. Whether or not that is good is up to you. If you have retail and/or cashier experience I believe this job will be easy for you to get. If you do not have either of those, it may be more difficult for the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's in February 2020.

    Interview

    6 days later, and I'm having to call them to follow up (and getting nowhere, just bounced from department to department, and I just had to leave a message on their machine). I seriously doubt I'm still in the running for either job, but I would at least like to hear that from them instead of being ghosted like this. It's disrespectful. Whether you have no experience or 10 years of experience, you should be treated as a professional and be communicated with.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you've had to sell someone on something (an idea, product, etc.).   Answer Question

    Excellent. Nice people. It was a pleasant process the whole way around. I definitely felt comfortable during the entire process. Usually interviews make me nervous, but the people made me feel very comfortable.

    It was really quick, she just asked some basic questions and wanted to make sure that if I got hired I would be able to work for the holidays. Then, she told me to wait for Helen to contact me. It was yesterday, so I haven't heard back yet.
