    Interview

    I applied online and the following day I got an email saying they were interested and to set up an interview date. The HR was really kind. He told me the interview would only be about 4-5 questions since they needed employees and those questions would determine if I got the job or not.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online as a seasonal associate first and the the interview process was easy. They asked general situational interview questions. The training process was very informational and you always get paid for being there. After my seasonal position, I got called in for a on-call sales associate which was almost the same as the first interview.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Concord, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Concord, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was only over the phone; I didn't even have to go into the store to meet in-person. The questions she asked were very simple and were all behavioral. My problem with this process was how unorganized it was! I applied online and received an email two days later that said they were going to interview me on the phone "very soon." I was not able to schedule my own interview time and had no idea when they would call me that day (it turned out to be 2 PM). The interviewer said that she would call me back in a few days for my employment status. I didn't receive a call until a week later. The man on the phone scheduled me for two training days in December. Later that day, another woman called me and asked me to come in on Saturday for a full 8 hour shift. I am so confused.

    Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Pleasanton, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived 1 hour early prior to my interview appointment. I wanted to come early just in case I had to fill out any paperwork (I didn't) or maybe could get interviewed sooner. I waited the whole hour until my appointment came and was interviewed 15 minutes after my appointment time. The interview went really smoothly and the person who interviewed me was very casual! He asked me 4 questions and I was really comfortable. I gave him very detailed answers and included a lot of examples when he asked me two questions of "if.... what would you do?" and I felt like the interview went perfectly. I asked two questions at the end, he told me to wait for a while and he came back into the room with paperwork which I filled out, and then concluded the interview process with a "Welcome to the team!" I was interviewed today and told to come back tomorrow for my training day 1. I assume I got the position and was hired on spot!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate my starting salary (minimum wage). I applied for a seasonal job so I was told that it's also non-commissional. If you want to work for Macy's, definitely do your research and find out if their pay/hours are convenient or work for you. I didn't get the hours I wanted, however I'm still very satisfied that I got the job.
