    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Orlando, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    If it's season they usually call automatically but if its not during season don't get offended they usually don't really call people. After answering the interview question I tried my best to kind of keep the conversation going for at least 30 more mins. After i did that I got offered the job on the spot.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Degrading. The completely automated and very time consuming process culminating in an automated request for an interview was like a slap in the face.
    They didn't even have the decency to make a phone call to schedule an interview - instead the automated process wanted YOU to be available as a computerized time slot was sent.
    To make it more degrading, YOU had to check back through the computer system numerous times for the slot.
    This explains why the sales help at Macy's is the worst posssible and they are closing stores left and right.
    The "face of Macy's" that works directly with customers is lazy and generally illiterate - that is if you can find a salesperson.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had one interview said they have others to interview, if they wish to pursue me for employment any further there would be a second interview. Overall was a good experience but just wonder if any places are really hiring or it's a prank like Ashton Kushner! I don't know at this point but need a reason to even want to get out of bed. Rather be timeless than homeless.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Honolulu, HI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was semi professional. I waited in the Human Resources department for around five minutes before one of their managers took me to the third level into their private offices and that's where the interview took place. The questions were very simple and tolerable and the woman interviewing me was very nice. After the interview she complimented me questions and said she was VERY interested in me working for their company and even went as far as to say that even if the position I was applying for didn't go through she'd make sure I'd get a position somewhere else in the store. She said she'd call me the next day, she didn't and they never got back to me. Mind you this was the SECOND time they did this to me. Unprofessional. Never applying again.

The salary was pretty decent and choosing your schedule was easy. You could switch with co workers very easily and everyone gets to work the shift they prefer! Sales were easy to make on weekends and holidays!” – Full Review
