    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Macy's in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    There is only one interview for Store Management Interns. You first do a 1-on-1 interview and then you have a "coaching" session. In the coaching session they ask you to evaluate an associate performance sheet and decide which associate needs coaching, describe why they need it, and outline a plan on how you would coach them.

    Interview Questions
    • The most odd question I was asked was: "What other retailers are you looking at?"   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Went through on-campus recruiting and only had to do one 2-part interview. The first was a case study where you had to analyze 4 different store associates and choose which one you would coach, why, and how. The second part was a basic behavioral interview.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview. Questions were all behavioral. Tell me about a time when... Next there was a skype interview with another recruiter from Cincinnati. Also, a behavioral type interview. A lot of the same questions. The interviewers just want to check for consistency and get to know the candidates a little more. Finally was a 1:1 interview with a store manager. Make sure to ask the manager more questions than they ask you.

    Store Management Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    I applied on campus for the internship. I also went to speak with the recruiters at career fairs and dropped off my resume to show that I went.
    The interview process really starts out with the "Interview Prep Session" the day before the interview. You get a higher chance of getting the position just by showing up to the session--there are many who don't. They also give you hints at how to prepare for your interviews.
    It is composed of 2 parts: 1) Behavior and 2) Case Interview.
    The 25 minute behavioral one is simply knowing what you wrote on your resume really well, and be able to apply your accomplishments and skills to the company. E.g., I did x at y, so because of this experience, I can do this for your company... My interviewer was really excited I studied abroad before, so she actually spent 10 minutes of the interview speaking about her experiences. :)
    The case interview is not like a consulting one. You're given a score charts of 4 sales associates in your department. They have different strengths, weaknesses and sales scores. You have to pick one you want to coach and improve. You are given a scratch piece of paper with the score chart, and have 20 minutes to prepare then 15 to present your case.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected question: Why did you pick the employee with the lowest score to mentor when you could have picked an employee with mediocre scores? Wouldn't you see results faster if you work on the mediocre employee?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate my location. I made a really strong case for why I had to be assigned to a certain location. However, they usually emphasize to you that they don't make guarantees.

    Store Management Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Macy's in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    An interview prep night was hosted the night before the interview by the recruiter and four macy's employees who turned out to be interviewers for the next day. They were very kind and helpful, going over what the position would entail and even gave you the format of the interview for the next day.

    There's two parts of the interview: one case analysis in which you choose to train 1 employee out of 4 given. You have a 10 minute reading period to yourself then the interviewer returns and you make a case of why you chose that particular employee. The second part was a typical behavioral analysis, with questions like "When was a time you had to make a quick decision?".

    I decided it wasnt a position I wanted to pursue to advance my career. I also heard negative reviews from two people who worked in the same position the year before.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Macy's in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my unversity college portal. I was requested for an interview about 3 days after applying. I attended a pre-night event which was very casual. They had a presenter who worked for recruitment at Macy's and she simply went over the details of the internship and what would be involved. It was very casual compared to other pre-night events I have attended. The next day I had 2 one on one thirty minute interviews. The questions asked were mostly behavioral but they did ask knowledge of quantitative skills as well. Overall, it's a pretty easy interview and they don't really throw many curveballs at you. I have not heard if I have been extended an offer yet.
