    Easy Interview

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

    Interview

    I applied online and within 24 hours they called me from headquarters. I actually missed the first two calls and didn't end up setting up my interview until I was emailed and I could set it up online. I showed up about 20 minutes early and had to wait, because the lady was in a meeting. I didn't really mind waiting since I did show up so much earlier than expected. Everyone that walked by asked if I needed help and everyone was so sweet and helpful as soon as I walked into the HR department. The woman came out and immediately gave me a nice warm feeling, she was very friendly. She asked me a lot of questions about my values because Macy's strives themselves on hiring people with integrity. This was right up my ally since my core values depend on honesty and integrity. I was a little bit nervous, but everything went so great. She said she actually liked me enough to offer me a permanent job, instead of just seasonal.
