Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Macy's in January 2012.

Interview Details – There were two interviews, the first one with the head of college relations and once you pass that one; you interview with your potential boss.

Interview Question – There really weren't any unexpected questions, all standard questions to be honest.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – non existent. Very informal in that sense, and they always assume you automatically accept once you apply within the company.

San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was able to choose the time I had the interview at. We were asked to bring a visual example of our work.
I did the interview with 6 other candidates. We were asked one question; why we wanted to intern for Macy's Special Events Department. Then the Special Productions Manager did the presentation of the Macy's Passport event. Finally we were asked to talk about the example we brought.
One week later I was informed by email that I was selected to be one of their interns.
I would advice the future candidates to be themselves.
From my point of view, the office environment was friendly and professional.
