Do you work at Macy's? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

Macy's will hire most anyone. If you can people to sign up for credit Macy's will love you truly.

Macy's is always hiring, If you don't get people to apply for credit you won't be a Macy's employee for long. It all about the credit, but if you are a good talker you go it made.

1. Have a pulse. 2. Sell their credit cards. 3. You're hired.

See also, Sears, JC Penny's, almost every store in every mall in America.

ey called me back in the Spring.

I applied for a Holiday position. Then after leaving they called me back in the Spring. Do you have the name of an Associate who yo can say was a Referral. That always helps! Good luck!!!

I'm in New York but not the city, working as a holiday sales associate.

I ask every single customer about the card. When I ring someone out, my first words are "Will you be using your Macy's Card today?"

This is what I've noticed:

1. Many people have one already, especially those with coupons, because many of the coupons require you to use the Macy's Card to make the purchase.

2. The ones who don't have a card almost never want one. And I really pitch it to them, explaining all the benefits. As an employee, I didn't even want one. I asked for a pre-pay card for my discount. The interest rates are ridiculous and who needs the extra burden in this economy?

So, do they really fire you if you don't open new accounts? You can only do so much. The one I've gotten so far, on my first day, was a couple buying a high ticket item who wanted the discount you get when using the card. And, they almost balked because of the info Macy's needs, specifically the Social Security, number.
