    Interview

    I applied to the same Macy's twice.

    The first time I applied, I applied online. The very next day I got an email asking me to schedule an interview date and time. Fast forward to the day, I had to wait an extra 30 minutes because the interviewer was interviewing someone else when I got there.
    Finally it was my turn. The lady asked me questions off of a piece of paper and wrote down my responses. She asked about 5-6 basic interview questions. After that she took me on a tour around Macy's. After we were done I asked her what to expect after the interview, and she said within 2 days they would email. After 2 days I got an email rejecting me because my hours didn't work.

    I applied a second time about a week later. Got another email to schedule an interview. I went to the HR room and explained to a different manager that I've already interviewed before, but I just applied again. I didn't know if it would be the same lady that was gonna interview me or not. The same lady came out and she was gonna interview me, but decided to have the manager that I talked to first interview me. He read basically the same script as first time. I changed the hours that I could and was willing to work. He said I had to be able to work weekends, but I couldn't. He then said he would talk to HR about it and that they would email or call me. A week later, I got nothing.

    Interview

    Applied online and was sent an email to schedule an interview. I got there, along with somebody whose interview got postponed so I guess they decided to do a group interview with the two of us. They asked standard questions and it seemed to go well, and after we were told to call back the following day to schedule another interview. However, after calling the number and extension given three times and leaving a voice mail, I never heard back from them either way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Flushing, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email the next day to schedule an interview. I went to my interview a week later and was told the interviewer for the department was not available for my time even though it allowed me to schedule for that time. I was interviewed by two other managers of a different department with a very easy going, laid back atmosphere. They told me I did well and would hire me if they had space in their department but they didn't, but I could come back the next day to interview with the other manager again. I came back the next day ten minutes early and was seated there for an extra 40 minutes because they again could not find the manager to the point where someone had to search the whole store looking for her. Finally she was found and we spoke for a few minute about the job. She told me I'd specifically get a call or email by 6 pm the same day, and I did not receive anything. This was very unorganized, and although the staff was nice, I will never apply here again.
