    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valencia, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Valencia, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Honestly this interview was terrible. I went on glassdoor the day before to prepare myself, but when I got into the interview I was asked questions that I wasnt expecting at all, and they really didnt have anything to do with the position I was applying for so I was honestly confused and wanted to ask, "why are you asking me these questions when they don't relate to the position I am applying for?" haha. The person who interviewed me was also kind of rude so that automatically made the interview uncomfortable.

    They were very nice, and took time getting to know you in the interview. Interview questions were standard, and I was hired soon after the interview. I liked how the Cosmetics Manager really seemed to care.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Valencia, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and scheduled an interview for a week later. I arrived on time and was asked to wait in a room where another girl was completing a training program. My interviewer was very nice and it only took about 25 minutes. He only asked me a few questions then left the room for a minute and came back to tell me that there were no positions available at the time. He also told me I would most likely get an email as soon as something opened up, but I feel like he says that to everyone. Overall, it was an okay interview.

    Interview

    I received an email after applying online to schedule an interview. I went in 2 days later for an interview, I got there about 15 min early. I signed in on a sheet, then I waited about 15 min after my interview appointment time til they called me in. The only time the interviewer even looked at me was when he called my name and shook my hand. During the interview he sat turned away from me just reading off my application, asking questions, and taking notes. Not even looking at me to hear my answers. A day later I received an email saying they don't have any positions available to me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macy's (Valencia, CA).

    Interview

    I applied for the position online then was prompted to schedule an interview several days later. I went in for the interview today and she asked the typical questions describe yourself, why Macy's?, describe a time when you..., and then asked for my availability. After that she did not ask many more questions. Despite that I could still accommodate the schedule she said, if you do not have completely open availability you won't get the position (at this location). I wish they would have told me that on the posting then I would not have wasted my time.
