Ok- I wore a nice black silk blouse, proper blazer , trousers, gucci belt black with gold accents,Hermas silk pocket square, Black with gold, aqua and hot pink print. Gold earrings smaller than a quarter, gold faux - but cute bangel style watch. Black loafers, croc style leather, black hose with pin-stripe design. and a Black patent leather nicole miller purse with a gold chain for it's strap.My top coat, full length with black fur w/a Very basic line. My make up was a dash of aqua, muted shades for high lighter- taupe, navy blue masacara, the new Esteee Lauder range of lipstick in a poppy color mixed with Rimmel Kiss.As I wanted to feature my makeup as the pop of color us that as my best assecory.My ESA was a polite 20 minutes early to show respect for time managament. As I sat in the very attractive waiting area, with lovely leather club style chairs, I noticed that each sales person that walked by said hello and asked if I had been helped out.A great sign for above average customer service!There was another lady waiting with me that came right at the time of her interview, the HR lady walks out and thought I was next, and I told her no, I'm a bit early, the other lady is before me.That interview lasted like 5 minutes, so it was my turn. I was super nervous. Right off the bat the lovely lady- very sharp looking asked me why I would want to work at Macy's. I told her who would not to work at the must fashionable store in the area!She laughed at that?I also told her to me it is about an honest passion , love for makeup design. The chance to meet and develope realationships with guests that leave the makeup counter feeling great is just not a happy acident but must be the norm.I told her that's what I love creating.She asked me several questions about when or If I had to mult-task, Thats where I told her my years working at Walgreens provided me with plenty exp. taking care of customers, working an entire truck, tag days all while making sure the corp dream of 40% happened.She told me that I looked great and seem like a would be perfect for a sales job she even told me that I would be an asset to the store.{i felt like I wanted to cry !} She told me she has several more interviews but she also asked me what hours I would like and so on. I think it might happen !Cross your fingers !

Just to have someone like that tell me that I would be an asset to such a lovely store meant very much to me!After being put down for soo long by my exa at walgreens it restores a bit of confidence. My ex- exa never said one word to the Peopleshowing up to work that did not even shower or press a uniform, but it was always about me. He would say I looked tired, or always had something negative to say about me. Often after these put downs I would go out on the floor and customers would tell me I look great and always do.He even asked me why I even Worked at Walgreens. So if I get the job or not , what it has done for me is to know that I do have a nice look for cosmetics and that what I put up with was 100% harrassment by a loser.

Wow, some nobody at a store no one shops at anyore told you what a magnificent person you are.....truly you are in outer space and obviously need a pat on the back when you wipe your butt like a good little girl......this is the best you can do? This is what you are so amazed and mesmerized about? If this is the best you have as far as asparations in life.....oh and yes i would laugh at you too about the most fashionable comment.......have you ever thought about being a writer, cause a good bye letter to the world would be approppiate in this situation.

And I do not think a person working at any store is a nobody.It is an art form to work retail and do a great at it. It is not for the person with a degree that can't find anything else it is for the shop gal or guy that starts at the store level, front end , dead end That loves it. People with the degree's are the Pharm people front end should have been cashier stl, dept lead and then some kind of manager job.The people that thought it was pudding in a cloud, easy job flash to 4 YEARS later and it comes down to is actual panic about actual work.The non - worker in most stores , to above basic care had degree's. Promote from store level for better results.,

That has more to do with your exa than Walgreens. You need to let stuff like that roll off your shoulders. If
Macy's move people around you might encounter someone like that again. You need to develop thicker skin.

When and if , and I hope that no one I , chat to, post to, email, text, phone, send smoke signals to must ever endure or experience what I have. To be bullied, demoralized, degraded to a state of no self confidence, held hostage by the need to pay bills , survive for over 2 and a half years, yet, never call off and still work hard to be the best at my job is more than enough thick skin! I did my time.

I love Macy's, It helped me get my job. Right before my interview with Follett. To my shock found that my son had written on my interview shirt. See I am 6 ft , 230 lbs, with a 22 inch neck. I normally have to order fitted shirts. Macy in the mall next to my hotel had one that fit me perfect.

Good Luck Cosmic

Race and the thickness if your skin have nothing to do with one another. Why would you stay for that long if it was that bad? You were a ba. The job market may suck right now but not for $8 retail employees.

I stayed because I did not want to give up because that is what that kind of jerk wants.Sadly in this area unemployment is very bad.I stayed long enough to find my current job, and be able to remain current with my bills.It is not easy to change work schedules,location and job routines To be honest,Looking back, I regret not leaving sooner than I did,but enjoyed my regular customers , job tasks enough to put up with it and thought things might change.

@OVER THIS Thank you for such a nice complement! I feel my writing skills could use a remedial course or three !I may seek a course to improve and to learn proper writing, perhaps find a creative writing course. As for creating a blog I think that would be such fun! I wish I could be a modern day Hedda Hopper, or Luella Parsons galavanting becoming a matron of society, feared by all of hollywood, even tycoons such as W.R.HEARST. that gave her a column in his news paper empire because she was on the yacht the night of the ,or been able to write glowing reviews about Marion Davies.You can bet when Luella showed up you best be on your best behavior! I do let my imagination get the best of me. But I once had a pysic medium tell me that I was an old soul who had lived back in the 20s and 30s. I think this is why I have always had a ultra sense about that era, I will tell you that I once survived the refulgence, hang overs of the 20's and depression of the 30s. I one day hope that time travel will happen, so that I can go back in time just like the movie Somewhere in Time,that is still such an amazing film.

You can always have someone edit your writing ,your words are colorful and capture the readers imagination! Many people assume that if you work retail you are probably giving up in life and settling ,so not true,many interesting souls work in retail.In my spare time i paint and i have been told i am very talented,but i love working retail,love the people i meet hoping to bring a little comfort and joy to the lives of the hurried masses i encounter daily.When i read your post it brightens my day knowing there are still delightful people on this earth!

I am one of those that enjoys working retail. For years, I did business to business sales -- until I woke-up one day and realized it was no longer fun. Retail sales actually feeds my natural personality, the Chatty Cathy type, and until all this nonsense started at Walgreens, I was a pretty happy camper. I know that I am good at what I do.......over the last year, I have collected a small stack of business cards from regular customers who have approached me about coming to work for them -- everything from selling dolphin watching day cruises to working at our independently owned Verizon wireless store. Before coming to Walgreens, I worked at higher end specialty stores. Even then, I collected business cards. People who are good with customers, and I mean really, really, really good with customers can always find a job. It is finding a job that comes with decent benefits, now that is the hard job to find.......BUT, they are out there.

RE: The job market may suck right now but not for $8 retail employees.

Unfortunately, this is the very attitude that has given the United States a huge black eye in terms of customer service. Sad. Very sad.
