Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Rancho Cucamonga, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Macy's in July 2014.

Interview Details I applied via online, got invited to do an interview, went to the interview. I arrived 15 minutes early. They took an hour to get to me after I asked 3 times if someone is going to interview me. Finally I got an interview and was asked about 10 questions. I thought I did fine and we were both smiling. The lady who interviewed me was nice, but seemed to lead me on. She said as soon as a job opened in a certain department they would give me a call or e-mail. Less than 24 hours later I received an e-mail saying I'm not qualified and there is no job for me. If this is how the managers and human resource employees normally are then I probably wouldn't want to work there anyway.

Interview Question – Explain a situation where you had to help someone with a problem that they would consider complex.   Answer Question
