I applied on campus through my school's career services site and got the interview. It was only one round of fit/behavioral interviews on campus; there was a pre-interview night they hosted on campus that was primarily just a panel of questioning and some networking.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I attended several networking events and company presentations. During this period I networked with a bunch of alums and the head recruiter. I also emailed back and forth with several Macy's employees. Just show your enthusiasm and network with as many people as possible. The interview consists of two 30 minute interviews with two different interviewers. It was primarily a behavioral interview and wasn't that challenging. It was very conversational and relaxed.

    Application

    interviewed at Macy's in October 2013.

    Interview

    I uploaded my resume to my campus career website. Macy's contacted me shortly after to schedule an on campus interview. I then attended an information session where they basically told me everything they wanted to hear during the interview. The interview went well and the interviewer told me on the spot I did a great job. I was contacted by a recruiter about three weeks later saying I got the internship.

    I attended the Career Fair at school and spoke to a recruiter about the company.

After that, I applied online via LinkedIn and was called for an interview. I was out of town for the interview so mine was over the phone. Very professional and nice!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in January 2012.

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Macy's (San Francisco, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    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.
