Easy Interview

They totally forgot about my interview, which is the exact same thing they did last year when they called me. Very disorganized and unprofessional. Nobody is ever where they are supposed to be.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Paso, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (El Paso, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and then I got an email to schedule an interview. They were actually tough questions for me. But it was dumb though because I got an email back saying I did not meet the availability qualifications even though I pretty much said I had open availability. They could've just told me I did not qualify overall instead of emailing a generic lie.
