    Very short. Not much detail. Looking for those that are customer service focused and friendly with public. Makes sense since it's 100% public facing. Question we're not complicated. Overall easy interview process.

    I filled a application out online . Received a email two days later to schedule my interview. I scheduled it for the following two days.

    This was my first interview in about 4/5 years so I was a bit nervous and I'm sure it showed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Macy's in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on snagajob and got an automated email to schedule an interview time 2 days later. I went to the interview 15 minutes later, and waited for the HR but she was 10 minutes late. Anyway, she brought me into her office and started asking me questions. It didn't seem like she'd even read my application, because she kept asking me questions that were on it. Most of the questions were situational questions about what I'd do if certain things happened on the job and I was really nervous and asked her to repeat questions a couple times while I was in the middle of my answer. After the interview, she said that they'd email me within the next 48 hours telling me if I got the job or not, and I got the email . I didn't have experience, so that may have been the reason I didn't get the job

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I was a bit early, so they told me to take a seat outside the office. I was brought back to an office where the manager sat across from me. She introduced herself and asked me some basic questions. Mostly about honesty and how I would sell to clients. I was then asked which 3 departments I would like to work in and I said either juniors, young mens, or perfume. I was not honored the requests but was offered a job on the spot for $.25 more than minimum wage.
