    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's in April 2017.

    Interview

    I walked to HR 15mins early and was told to have a seat and to please wait. About 10 mins after I was brought back to the room with a supervisor and another lady. I want to say she was a manager/lead for a department..we went over the typical questions. The whole process was about 10 mins long and I was NERVOUS..but they excused themselves then came back and extended an offer.

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

    Interview

    It was a 1:1 interview with a Sales Manager. We went over some basic/easy interview questions and she took notes. Most of the interview was conversational and seemed to test how you could create conversation from those questions rather than the questions themselves.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I wore black, the color of their uniforms there for the most part, and I made it stylish. A sales manager asked me a series of questions that related to Macy's, selling, and customer service. Then they offered me a job right after and assigned me to an area. What I did find interesting was not being asked what areas I'd be interested in working because there are many clothing sections in the store. I was only asked about cosmetics, but nothing about clothes; however, that may not be common practice. Also, the person who was interviewing me was a manager from another section than the one I was assigned to, but I am glad I got that department in the long run and was happy that's the spot I was chosen for.

    It was a pretty straight forward interview they asked any regular questions that a retail store would ask. Just go in professionally dressed and bring your resume with you just incase they haven't printed out your resume.

    Super easy. Just be confident and they'll like it. Speak capitalism to them, all about how you can make more money for them, how you're happy to work for them. Be honest, but away it to their favor.
