    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Schaumburg, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Schaumburg, IL (US)).

    Interview

    It went extremely well and was very quick. Whether or not that is good is up to you. If you have retail and/or cashier experience I believe this job will be easy for you to get. If you do not have either of those, it may be more difficult for the job.

    Interview

    Simple process. You walk in, wait for the manager who is probably running around the floor to deal with other stuff, then they take you in a conference room. Worked in many departments then left after 3 months.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Jersey City, NJ (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Filled out an application online, then was sent an email to schedule an interview, I came in the the a little through the interview the lady tells me that the position has been filled and asked if I would be interested in another role at the location. Honestly, I don't want ot work for a location that would have someone waste their time by coming in to interview for a position that has already been filled.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Riverside, CA (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Took a while for someone to open the office door for me and even longer to see me. Everyone walked by as if I wasn’t there. I honestly almost left after 30 minutes of waiting. The cosmetics manager wasn’t there so another department manager interviewed me. It went by pretty quick and I had an alright experience. The manager was very friendly and easy to talk to. Listen to the questions carefully because there are mainly 3 parts to each question they ask, so make sure you answer them completely.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Ann Arbor, MI (US)).

    I was there to be interviewed for another job but ended up being offered this job instead. It made the interview process a bit differently than what I was expecting but overall, it was fairly quick and easy. They asked basic questions about your experience on how to deal with an angry or upset customer.. why you want this job and other things that didn’t matter.
