Airport Safety in Enfield, Connecticut

Biggest interview scam I ever went through. Applied online- got a rejection letter almost 24 later. The day after they called me to see if I wanted to interview. At the time I was unemployed so I said yes. Went in only to hear that she had given the position to someone days before. When she asked me how much I wanted to make, she said no negotiations. Everyone makes the same amount whether you are a HS drop out or like me (went in with a degree in the field and 5+ years in the same field I was applying for). The they said staff can't work for more than 4 hours per day! Wouldn't even be worth driving there if accepted. . . oh yeah, my father managed a different dept too and still rejected. Not only will I never apply there, I have not shopped there since.

I worked years ago for this company, I was never hired as a PTor FT employee after they promised me, I worked there 2 years as an on-call and they just kept hiring new people,giving us little hours, so of course no benefits ever. I already had retail experience and a degree so they were taking advantage of me because they offered me minimum wage. Found another job, their competitors and was offered a part-time, a year later I was working full-time with more pay. Macy's takes advantage of it's people, they yell at you to sell, sell, sell, and credit cards are a must. I hated being a fake salesperson.

I absolutely hate working here. First they hire u 'option 5' which means they only assign u 4-8 hours a week. Finding hours is terrible, there are never any available! And the pay is horrible 7.40 but I'm supposed to be this amazing sales person. And they're always hiring, why there are no hours for people who already work here! Then credits, that's all I ever here from my manager credit credit credit! 99% of people who come to my department already have a Macy's card so how am I supposed to get 2 a week. Working twice a week on non sale days. On top of that u have big goals and now that they've changed to score cards it's even worse for the people with little to no hours. I wouldn't recommend working here at all, looking for a new job now.

If you think the Macy's DC or Fulfillment Center is different your wrong.
First off you go into an interview thinking that you've just applied for a full time job as listed on there website
second you get there and you are interviewed by one in a series of managers.
third your told that the full time and part time positions are filled and all they have is oncall your choice of taking it or not taking it.

Benefits is only an associate discount and a 401k after a year if you worked over 1000 hours.
Another benefit is unlike the store you do get a lot more hours however they will try there best to block you from part time and even harder from full time.

And people as far as part time goes. You don't want part time either...

Part time at the warehouse is capped at 20 hours a week sometimes more if they're busy. You have to wait a year for benefits. And you do not get premium pay or vacation until the next year.

You will get alot of miscommunication.
Little knowledge I have about warehouse work DC/FC
not too sure about stores
Don't listen to what HR tells you take it with a grain of salt
ask workers and some supervisors.

I can tell you without a doubt if you average part time hours for a year 1000 they have to bump you up to part time. Infact if you average over 625 hours you've crossed the threshold at least that was last year

If you average full time hours they have to bump you up full time.

Do not let management and HR get to you. They will do everything in there power to not make you part time or full time.

And if you do let them get to you you do have a bad day and you do get disciplined for it (this is to everyone in macys whose oncall). Don't be afraid to call instore solutions. At that point you have nothing to lose and you cost your unit (company) money.
Remember whatever punishment you get as an on-call is more severe than that of a permanent employee.

Screwed me over in interview in Chicago, Illinois

28 months ago

I came in, had a GREAT interview with the recruiter. We bonded. He said he put in a good word for me with the jewelry head. I was there for a fine jewelry job. I met the dept head. He was a total rat. After wasting my time for about 15 minutes, he tells me to wait for a few minutes. All along the line the people knew I had a parking meter running out of time. They were good about it except the jewelry creep who took his time. He finally comes back with some woman from Kids/Young Men's Dept. Rat tells me he has NO OPENINGS, but meet this woman. WHAT A LIE!!! Why did he interview me then and ask me every quesgtion in their arsenal? Liar! The woman speeds the interview along cause she knows I have to get to my meter. Finally, she says do I have time to do the paperwork and schedule my first day. Huh? Am I hired? I say anytime is fine. She says I can do the paperwork on my first day. I run to my car which is many blocks away (downtown Chicago) dying from a near-asthma attack. This was a week ago. Never heard from the woman or anyone else. I called HR and she said through them that she was busy and would call me. Never did. What the hell is with this place. I made it five minutes late to my car and beat the cops to a ticket. At least I didn't have that happen on top of all this crap.

I've had a very similar experience with Macy's Orland Park. I interviewed and the woman said she loved me and had two potential positions available. About a week later after hearing nothing I got a call saying they'd filled the position I interviewed for but she was forwarding me to another dept with an opening. Of course, I heard nothing for two weeks,called again, left a message for a girl that picked up in HR. Heard nothing, called again, she mentioned getting my previous message. I finally got a call from the woman in the "other" dept saying they also had no openings.
I inquired about when holiday, temp staffing would start. They said they'd give me a call back. And...I've heard nothing.

Don't waste your time. This company is disorganized and inefficient.

The woman who told me to call back after the interviewer baled told me I would get another email to confirm. I never got the email. I received an email from the other macys store I applied for. I went to the interview. It went well. After evey answer she said "ok, perfect" She asked me what my top 3 departments that I would like to work in. I thought of the ones most appealing to me but said I would love to work anywhere in the store. She was kind of pushing jewelry and I said "absolutely"she told me she had a few more interviews and that I would hear back in a couple of days. She asked me if I had any questions for her. I told her that while I didn't have alot of experience in retail (under a year) would that make it more difficult. She laughed and said no, anyone can pick up how to do it quickly and experience in this didn't really matter. I received an email this time saying I didnt fit any of their needs and good luck with future endeavors. Does this mean that I should never apply there again? I would really like to work there again? I know that after my bad experiences with them so far, I shouldn't want to but I really love this store. If I could somehow get my foot in the door w/o all the drama w/management who couldn't give two ***** about me or my time. I think the employees (who were the only ones who were helpful with my dilemma) would be great people to work with.

I'm in a New York store but not the city. The training was minimum wage, $7.25 an hour in New York, and the pay once you're out on the floor is 50 cents higher, at $7.75. Pretty terrible. Maybe Herald Square (Manhattan) pays more, I don't know. I'm sure they probably don't.

Already did that (applied) I been trying to get work in
Macy's in my state (OR) and they don't even give me a chance each time that I applied they say that I don't qualify and that they will keep application on file for 30 days. the last time that I applied was one month ago and that was my last time.

I am also in strike; I will not buy anymore in that store ( the company is rich and I am not going to make it more rich) because I don't have the money to do it.

Additional: I have applied more thatn 6 times since 2010

Macy's (which is really Federated, isn't it?) sounds like a scheethole to work. The thing about them only giving 4-8 hours and always hiring when they could give the hired more hours - that really gets my goat.

We work so physically hard and we don't get enough pay. It's sad. I know I am counted on to come to work every time I am scheduled. The minimum is so low but if our wage goes up so does everything else. It won't help us at all then.

I just had an interview yesterday. I was there 15 minutes early. But I waited about an HOUR for them to finally interview me. I went in and asked THREE times if there is going to be someone in there who is going to interview me. One lady had a mean blank face with no eye contact and said my interviewer would be out shortly. Then finally, I was called in. The interview felt like it went well. I smiled as much as felt right, and answered all the questions fluently. Then she said there were no jobs available but she would get back to me as soon as there were open positions. WHAT!? The next day, I got an E-mail saying I'M NOT QUALIFIED and there are NO JOBS FOR ME. Keep in mind the job I'm applying for takes no prior experience and they hire teenagers! I have a feeling they hire people heavily based on their looks. But who knows. It's a mystery to me!

I did an interview and in the interview he agreed that I had great qualifications (30 years retail experience) and I could not get him up from 8.50 to 9.00 hour. It looks like I am getting a full time job at another corporation as I am unemployed but I gotta tell you even being unemployed I was having doubts about taking the position at Macy's...temp....no benefits.....8.50 hour ??????? How would any employer expect the 8.50 an hour employees to give a darn about the job ???

I had really good luck with Hechts, just as it became Macy's, but then I noticed that as a floating employee I had to deal with a bunch of attitudes from other sales people, I met some really unfriendly characters. I declined to work with them. I gave my notice and quit, then moved to a new area of the state. I have applied to Macy's where some of my friends work and I can't get through their interview process, even though it was Hecht's that initially hired me! Oh, and I had been a prior Hecht's seasonal employee. I never had a problem with Hecht's, but Macys? Forget about it!

I applied for an admin assistant position at the Wanamaker building location several years ago. After filling out the online application I was notified via email that I selected for an interview. I scheduled my interview online then one or two days before my interview I received an email notifying me that the position was filled and my interview was cancelled. I can't help but wonder if they had someone lined up for that position all along....

Applied for on call position for Retail support at Herald Square and got the job. Completed training and the HR guy that was incharge of us that day told us to not pick shifts without your manager calling you. This was 3 months ago. I see why they told us not to call because they knew we would be waiting this long. I get that its on call but come on man, at least keep us updated on whats going on and not have us in the dark until a call arises.. Its ridiculous. They advertise how much they need helping hands and then never contact anybody. Its a bunch of bull and ridiculous. Don't apply here. You'll have a better outcome somewhere else.

I posted this in the other Macy's board on this site, but I was hired for a seasonal position over the phone by a Macy's call center rep and, from what I learned firsthand, there is NO communication between this call center and store HR. As a result I wound up being assigned to the wrong department and thus when I would show up for work to the department I was actually hired for, I was being deducted attendance points for being late and despite repeatedly hounding HR about it, was basically hand waved away and told it was taken care of (which it obviously wasn't).

I worked (first week being passed around randomly, the second week in the department I was actually hired for) the two weeks leading up to the start of the seasonal period and when I called in the next week (as I had no hours on my schedule) was told by my manager he had no hours for me for the next two weeks. I managed to pick up a couple of shifts online and was called the day of the first shift and told not to bother coming in. Went to log onto MSP and was no longer able to access it.

From what I figure, the store was sent way more people than they actually needed between who they hired and who was sent to them via phone interviews and people who get hired in store will be the ones they keep.

They pay you beans and want you to jump through rings of fire. I had an interview with them in the 8th of this month. These jerks had me waiting for 20 min, then my interviewer could barely speak English. How can I answer you if I don't know what the hell you're saying? Them guess what? They won't even contact you to tell you if you're hired or not. Well they can keep their crappy job. I start my new job tomorrow and it pays way more than they do at their minimum wage. They can keep that.

After applying for Macy's job, I was finally able to schedule for an interview which I had to wait like two weeks. I was interviewed at Macy's for Seasonal Recovery Part Time job and was hired on the spot to work at Fine Jewelry, but they needed Background screen before I can start training. The HR girl told me to call her in next couple of days and I called her and she said she will call me back when Background screen comes back. I waited a week and called and only got a answering machine. I called back about 3 days later and left my name and phone number, but no call back. My background is clean. I check my e-mail everyday incase they contact via e-mail. As of today it's been 2 weeks, which is like a month. I am going to wait one more day and call back, and if I don't get any feed back. I am going to start applying for new job. Maybe their competitor. Macy's HR is so lame and unprofessional. I feel like I am left in a limbo with them. If they don' contact me back it's their loss of great potential employee and customer as well, because I will not ever shop there again, but I will shop at their competitor. I hope someone from Macy's Corporate is reading this and think about changing their hiring practice.

I applied and got a job at Macy's as a Seasonal associate, which I believed came with benefits. I was told that I did not get benefits because I owed HECHT's from 1998! I was denied my associate prepaid card. That bill was almost 16 years old. I decided not to work for them at the wages they offered. 7.85 per hour.

I worked at Macy's for two yrs and made $7.10 per hour.
The people I worked with were great. The customers were what made your day horrible.

Macy's doesn't care how much sales you make, they only care about how many credit cards you open up for them.
The rate you every month on how many you opened.

Then once a month, you will be taken into the office where the dept manager will show you your weeks sales and how many sales of cash, credit cards, and Macy's cards you rang up.

They will then say, "Here, you had 25 Visa transactions. Those were 25 times you could of opened up a Macy's card!"

What they don't realize is out of those Visa transactions, half of those ALREADY had a Macy's card and didn't want to use it and the other half didn't want a Macy's card at all.

But wait! That is when you have to remember that video they made you watch in training where you had to learn how to get around people's excuses for why they didn't want a Macy's card!

Yep, they have a video where they tell you what to say when a customer gives you an excuse why they don't want to open up a Macy's card.

90% of your customers are not nice that want everything for nothing.
The rest are ones who are nice and you give them discounts.

Biggest advice? Work there temporarily to make a FEW bucks then get a better job somewhere else.

Similar thing just happened to me and they are very unorganized. I was scheduled for a PHONE interview and they called me 5 minutes before it happened saying for me "not to come in". I explained to the HR person that this was a scheduled phone interview. She then gave me a take it or leave it time for the next day- took the time off of work for a job that never existed.

I have had my fair share of interviews at Macys and they were all bad, especially at the one in Marlow Heights. I don't know why they continuously choose to waste my time and effort if they are just going to interview me and never get back to me. Every time I go it is with the same guy. The first time I went, I kind of knew that i was not going to get the job because he just sat and stared at me and did not write anything down! just disrespectful as can be!
The second time it was with the SAME guy and the SAME thing happened! But even worst, he knew the other person that was getting interviewed and they looked as though they have been best friends for the longest so you know how that went. DON'T call me in if you're just going to sit there and be disrespectful! My schedule did not change so they did not have an excuse to why they chose the same applicant that was rejected the first time. I will NOT be applying to the Macy's in Marlow Heights again because they do not know what to do with themselves!

I am completely shocked. Same thing happened to me a year ago, I applied for the Woman's Clothing Dept., they said they already filled the position while I was interviewing?? I worked fulltime at that time and loved Macys, was just looking for some extra cash...I have never thought much of that weird experience. I am passionate about treating people with dignity and respect in the workforce, this is awful, the job market already is very challenging, why do they waste peoples time??? Macys is a block away from my house, I will never shop there again after what I have read and will tell friends as well! This is just a terrible way to run a business.

I was told to come in for an interview and showed up 15 minutes early, dressed to impress. The lady interviewing me was friendly and seemed impressed (I have 12 years of retail experience and a degree) so she told me I was hired and she, quote, "couldn't wait to work with me". So I went outside and they had me fill out the paper work and me and the woman who worked the service area chatted as I filled the paper out...she even said she was happy I got the job. She said they'd send me an email monday, 4 days from then, which would tell me when to come in and start my training. WELL GUESS WHAT? I never got that email monday. Or tuesday. Or wednesday...or the whole next week and a half. So I called the store and asked. The woman who answered told me I should have got the email and to check my spam folder (I had been checking it already, I'm not stupid). She said the HR head was coming in that day so she would tell her about it and find out what was up and get back to me. SURPRISE...they didn't get back to me. Ever. I called a couple days later and they put my call to voice mail and I left a message explaining (politely) the situation as well as my phone# to get back to me. Still nothing. No emails, no phone calls, they won't even answer the phone when I call now. I think it's downright rude and disrespectful to tell me I have the job, tell me you'll email me my training date and then do nothing. I will NEVER shop here as a customer again, and I will be telling the rest of my family to avoid them as well. Ignorant company.

How long after the interview do they tell you that youve been offered the position? I went to an interview today and I Heared the manager tell another person that she would get 20 hours a week and she would start seasonal in November but she told me they would notify my via email or call she had more interviews to do? Did I not get the job?

I had a positive experience getting hired at Macy's for seasonal work:

Wednesday: Submitted application.
Thursday: Received invitation for interview.

Following Thursday: Interviewed for job and hired on the spot.
Friday: Started training.
Saturday: Started work.

Biggest negative as a seasonal worker is not being assigned hours and having to pick up other people's shifts. Permanent staff are given priority. Better to have another job in addition to one at Macy's.

Other than that, if you like helping others and interacting with people, this is a great job for you.

This happened to me TWICE, though I have 2 degrees in Fashion. Once they tell you HR has your application, you won't get an interview. You get the auto response, yet my daughter in law, with NO DEGREE in Fashion got hired part time, within 3 hours! I suspect the comment about age, is right, since they ask when you graduated high school & add 18 to that.

Macy's is looking to hire young college students not older people. That's why they don't call you and even if you get hired you will only be called to work if they really need you. Go find a real job, I know it's tough out there. I have several years of working here and I am scheduled few hires to work. This is a bad year for Macy's, but not only Macy's.

Macys Sales Associate in Chino, California

I absolutely love working at Macys! I started off as a seasonal associate last year and after the holidays ended they kept me and put me on commission for men's suits and shoes. They offered me a full time position but I am 19 and I go to school full time so I chose the part time position 12-20 hours a week. I love how flexible the schedule is (we are able to trade shifts with co-workers to fit our personal schedules, pick up shifts, and give away shifts) Overall I have had a wonderful experience working for this company. The only negative experiences I had is with my macys prepaid card. It took forever for me to finally get it (because the office people misplaced my paperwork) and I also do not receive my statements or coupons every month like I am supposed to.. I have called customer service about it multiple times but nothing gets done... other than this I absolutely love working for this company

I can't say any positive for this company. Went in for a Seasonal Interview 2 weeks ago. Was offered job on spot. Accepted. She said 2-5 days for Background Check. 5 Days were 2 days before Thanksgiving. I called Mon/Tues (day 4 and 5). Both went to Voicemail for the lady's number. Day before Turkey day, no call. Black Friday, no call.

Now we at week 2, no call Mon or Tuesday.

I am giving them benefit of doubt due to Holidays. I dont know if BG checks are in-house or contracted. So that could be the delay. But I also did Apply for a Seasonal spot... a spot that is in demand during this Holiday season... It was also for a job not loved by many. I am confused going either A) Lying lady B) Busy due to Holidays C) Just an awful company.

Only positive thing I can say, is the hiring manager was awesome, she was relaxed, understood everything, listened, made me at ease with nerves. She was great. But now after not returning calls... and 2 weeks after I was handed a paper with a Job title + I filled my Tax papers out... I am still with no job....

My advice? GO find better. After doing more research, Macy's treats everyone like complete dog crap it seems unless you Management or Exec or been there for decades.
