    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (San Mateo, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    My appointment was at 10 am in the morning but the doors did not open until then or later, while I wanted to arrive early I couldn't and I had to wait about a half an hour in the HR office before the interviewer showed up. Later on I realized the position was very early in the morning, and that they needed a ling term employee. Since I was only looking to work for the summer they did not hire me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My interview process was amazing, the manager that interviewed me was super nice and laid back. I did arrive a little too early, so I was sitting there for a while, they did keep me waiting which wasn't that great. Overall, the experience was valuable, and the manager definitely calmed my nerves with his humor. Even though I didn't receive an offer due to scheduling conflicts, it was a great experience.

    User Experience Architect Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Macy's (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Two phone rounds, a design challenge, in person all day interview then another follow up phone round. The onsight was awkward and the team seemed generally unenthusiastic and unprepared without any idea of questions they wanted to ask me. In the end after not getting a response for 6 weeks I emailed the recruiter and the manger and was told I was right on the border between this position and another lower position that paid about 20k less..would I be interested in pursuing the lower position? After MONTHS of back and forth with them this was not an appropriate response. I felt like I had been baited and switched. After an experience such as this just for an interview it is just not a company I would be interested in working for.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    On the Macy's website they group together full time and part time, I was looking for part time. I was interviewed by a nice woman who had to read word by word questions from a Macy's interview sheet, it was very robotic. My interviewer had to leave and check to see if any part time jobs were even available.

    She gave me a job at their Finish Line boutique, later calling me after I had left the building that since Finish Line was a separate entity from Macy's I had to go through another interview with the manager's at Finish Line.

    I had a nice interview with a panel from Finish Line.

    I got a call later that night that I had gotten the job. Only to be called again saying the part time position (which she had checked for earlier) wasn't in their computer data base, hence she wasn't actually able to hire me.

    Nice people for the interview, although it was a large hassle and waste of time.
