Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's.

Interview

I scheduled my interview online and then went in as scheduled. I didn't even meet with my would-be boss as she was leaving for vacation and couldn't stay. I met with another manager who works in HR. She asked why I was leaving my current job, why I was moving, and said I was good to go. It was pretty basic, no real questions. Fairly instant hire after a background check.

Negotiation

No negotiation. I was guaranteed approximately 3 hours a week at minimum wage.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Vernon Hills, IL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    To even begin consideration for a job at Macy's you have to apply online for an open position that is available. During the application there is a prerequisite questionnaire that will gauge your interest and capabilities for the job you're applying for. The rest of the application is pretty much routine, experience, references (depending on the position you'r applying for), a long list of EEOC questions, providing and email address, etc. If you meet what they are looking for, either a computer or a person at their HR headquarters will OK you to the next process which is scheduling an interview.
      To schedule your appointment you have to go through a link that is emailed to you once you are considered eligible for the position. All of this is through their website, which will show you a number of upcoming dates that are open for interviews. On each of those dates there are specific times from which you can choose from, depending on manager availability and/or previously scheduled interviews. After you scheduled your appointment the website will give you specific instructions on how to get to their HR offices within the store you are applying for, the same information will be emailed to you.
      The Interview process is pretty much standard across the board, a manager for the area you applied for is called to interview you, usually it's someone that is on call at the time.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Thousand Oaks, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied online and within a few days I received an email asking me to come in for an interview; I set up an interview for a Monday morning and was hired on the spot after being interviewed. I was interviewed by a sales manager even though I had applied for a support position. She asked me several questions about my best and worst qualities, specific situations that proved my qualifications, etc. Honestly, it was my first job and I thought the interview went awful, so I was extremely happy when she came back in and told me I had got the job!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Denton, TX).

    Interview

    Was called a couple weeks after application was submitted online. Arranging a meeting was simple and the interview was straightforward. The manager said they hire a lot of college students during this time of year. Manager was nice, although if you apply for more than one position, the manager here was unclear as to exactly what I was doing. Vague. I thought I was going to be an on call employee when I ended up working there more than planned.
