Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Macy's (West Covina, CA) in October 2017.

Interview

I applied online on a Thursday, got an email the next day about setting up an interview. I got to pick what time and day I wanted to be interviewed. I chose the upcoming Tuesday and I now have a job at Macy's! The interview was about 15 minutes long and the interviewer was really nice and friendly, she left the room for about a minute to review my answers and came back and offered me the position I applied for. She then told me I would receive a call to set up orientation and training, I received the call the next day! (:

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (El Paso, TX) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an application on Monday and received an email a few hours later with a link to schedule an interview. I selected the earliest time which was Thursday morning. On Wednesday I received an email reminding me of the upcoming interview. I came to the "interview" 20 minutes early and waited until the scheduled time of my interview at which point a lady came up and informed me that all interviews had been canceled since the position was already filled and that I should've received an email stating that the day before. I checked my email upon leaving and didn't have an email canceling my interview. All in all it was a huge waste of time applying here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    For someone equipped with extensive corp experience, and retail experience, the conversation could have been more mature rather than the template list of questions geared to inexperienced individuals. They require staff remain completely schedule flexible which is illogical for most people, especially if holding down more than one job.

    Interview took less than 20 minutes. I was asked at the beginning of the interview if I was looking for seasonal or permanent part time work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Sacramento, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Was about 10 minutes early, but the interviewer met me immediately. She was apparently new and was a little scrambled, but she was very friendly and easy to talk to. Opened the interview by asking me to tell her about myself. Then there were about 15 questions before she left the room for about 5 minutes and came back with a job offer. I accepted and then she led me to another to schedule for training and give me a briefing of what to bring on my first day.
