I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Macy's.
It has been a good interview process so far. I am still in process with them. Initial interviewer put me at ease and offered good detail about the company and the position.

The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Macy's (Chicago, IL) in February 2012.
I was contacted via email after I submitted my resume online to schedule an interview. At the face to face interview many situation type questions, how do you handle multiple projects, keep yourself organized etc... Scheduled immediately for a 2nd interview with the manager. Declined the offer.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Macy's (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2009.
A former colleague recruited me for an open position. The screening interviews took longer than I expected but the people were extremely friendly, easy to talk to. When I went to Cincinnati for the final rounds of interviews the logistics went extremely well. Again, all the people who interviewed me made me feel welcome, were genuinely curious about my experience and possible future contribution. Overall the interviewing and hiring was great. The on boarding process left a lot to be desired. It consisted of a two hour meeting with an HR Manager who gave me lots of information all at once. The initial training for the role was non-existent. I basically fended for myself. Luckily I had a wonderful supervisor who helped me a great deal and answered questions for me.
- Rather than asking me to answer questions about my experience and knowledge, I was asked a lot of "what if" and "How would you..." questions. I had a hard time answering as some scenarios seemed so esoteric. 3 Answers
I really didn't have to negotiate. The salary was more than I expected. The relocation package was generous and very easy to manage. They had a health benefit package that didn't start for six months. That was the only think I didn't like. But there was no negotiating it.

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Macy's (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2008.
The interview began with a telephone interview which covered the basic questions: experience, education, etc. The second interview was a one on one interview and the employer had a list of questions already prepared. The interviewer throughly reviewed my resume. I had previous experience working in a Macy's retail store. The enviorment was very uptight and conservative.
- Why do you want to work for Macy's? 1 Answer
The pay is based on work experience and education; it is also based on what others in similar positions make. The company overall can be very hard lined on what they are willing pay; some negotiation is acceptable just dont over do it.
