    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Santa Ana, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, got an email to schedule an interview. I was interviewed by 2 department managers separately and then together. They were very friendly and the interview questions were pretty ok, mostly about customer services. I was a little disappointed because I applied for cosmetics but they hired me for clothing department since I said I'm willing to work in other departments. But I got offer right then and there.
