Anonymous Employee
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.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Macy's in October 2012.

Interview Details – 30 of behavior with one manager and 30 mins of case study with another manager. The behavior included common question like your greatest strength/weakness. The case study was where the manager give you a sheet of paper with 5 employees with their personal traits and selling records for the past few months. Then, he left for fifteen minutes and told you to analyze the information and decide how the bonus should be split and who should be promoted. Each person had flaws, whether personality or technical so I don't really know exactly if there was a right answer.

Interview Question – What do you think is the most important? Technical skills or being able to work in a group of diverse people   View Answer
