    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    First is the long on-line application with the personality testing, then you are asked to come in. Interviews were fine, if they don't give you the whole story. Didn't give full process or explain training, when hours could be picked up. Sort of like they were telling half the story.

    Applied online. You must be 18+ to work here. If you get an interview, you're basically hired. They will hire you on the spot. Questions: 1) why macy's? 2)what do you do to celebrate a sale? 3) how do you encourage customers to buy more things? etc
    Answer they are looking for: 1) macy's is a long standing company. 2) "thank you for shopping with us!" 3) telling them that we have a lot of sales and coupons!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the next day I received an email for an interview. I made an appointment for an interview for the following day and the earliest they had. I arrived 15 minutes early and dressed as the Macy's dress code to show I was determined to get this job. I arrived in the office and this lady asked "Can I help you?" I replied "Yes ma'am I am here for an interview." She asked for my name and had my paper profile in her hand. She was walking up and down in that office and gave it to the store manager and, he was walking up and down in the office for about a good 20 minutes. He finally apologize saying he was trying to find someone to interview me. He ended up interviewing me the whole time. He asked "Why Macys?" than started to read questions from the paper. He stuttered way to much while reading the interview questions to me, he kept shaking and I kept getting interrupted. His phone kept ringing and other employers kept coming in his office. He kept commenting that he liked my answers to his questions. Than at the end of the interview he said he would give this to a section manager or section supervisor and they would look over my notes. He continued to say "I will make sure I would tell them what a good candidate you are. I would have them call you because I don't know what department are available." The next morning I received and email and it said there is no positions available for me at the moment.

    Interview Questions
    • -Why Macys?
      -Do I like to voice my opinion? Benefits? Disadvantages?
      -Describe a time I saw someone do something wrong?
      -Describe a time I sold something?
      -What would I say to a customer to make them feel better shopping her again?
      -Describe a time I helped someone with a difficult situation.
      The questions above were the only questions I remember. Overall It wasn't difficult just a lot of describing.
