Sales Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in May 2017.

Interview

I am an extremely enthusiastic person. I went on the interview and it was a room with 3-4 HR reps and you were supposed to spend 1/2 hour with 2 of the HR reps. The first person i spoke with was engaged in my interview. We spoke about multiple things both job and non-job related. The second person was looking at her phone the whole time, and looking away. Zero eye contact. She would ask me a question and then check her text messages (absolutely Rude) To top it off i was scheduled for my interview and arrived more than on time and when i walked into the room for my interview the HR Reps had a load of resumes on the table but my resume wasnt there. They were totally unprepared. Then ta few days later they had the nerve to tell me i wasnt offered the job, but in all actuality i was never fully interviewed. Macy's needs to get a grip on their HR Reps Interviewing team. Looking for work is a stressful enough process there is no need for your interviewer to be texting while interviewing you. She also had the nerve to ask me "Oh, the other guys asked you all the other questions right?" (like how am I supposed to know what the questions are , am I interviewing myself) give me a break! If this is a representation of your company. I will take my experience and most of all RESPECT some place else. I walked out from that room feeling completely agitated and wanting to chop my macy's card in two.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Apply online. Schedule your interview via an email link. Had two face to face interviews with two different Sr. Exec. Did not ask the typical interview questions. It felt very intense. A lot of company jargon used in the interview. Thought they were interviewing me for the NASA space program. Interviewers made no notes so not sure what or how they were rating my responses. It was about 24 interview questions altogether with side questions for clarification. Even though I prepped for the interview it felt like I was completely unprepared. It lasted about an hour and a half.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you influence or inspire others? How do you handle an employee you like but does not perform well? How do you let stakeholders know that you have the company's best interest in mind?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I was recruited by Macy's so my interview experience was more like I was interviewing them as to why I should leave the company I was with at the time. It was refreshing to have a company want to explain to me why they thought they were a good fit for me versus the other way around. The discussions focused around what was important for me to have in a career and how they could be those things for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to work with others to accomplish a goal? How did you go about this? What was the goal? What was the outcome?   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    The interview was straightforward and well organized. There was a case study that we had to present to the recruiter as well as a Q and A. I was interviewed by two different individuals, which I think was an affective technique. Everyone was very friendly. The interview lasted approximately an hour. I heard back from them in a month, and accepted the position.
