    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Macy's in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    First met with the human resources manager. Filled out a 5 page application and signed a background check waiver. VERY basic questions. Such as biggest strength/weakness, biggest accomplishments, etc.

    HR manager contacted me the following day to schedule an interview the following week.

    Met with a buyer in the women's contemporary department. The interview was very laid back, in her small office. Basically did a comparison of how the buying department worked at Macy's vs. the other company I worked for. Didn't have much to say and the meeting wa s brief.

    Went through extensive background check. Copy of college diploma, called all previous employers for salary and date of hire/end dates, checked 4 references.
