    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied through university. Had two on-campus interviews, the first was behavioral and the second was a decision-making activity/presentation. After that about 2 weeks later I got invited to a two day interview in Miami, FL. Day 1 you learned more about Macys and the program. Day 2 consisted in 2 group interviews/presentations similar to on-campus and 2 individual behavioral interviews. Plus 2 chats where you can learn more about position. Super great experience! Hotel accommodations were nice. Interview was on Wednesday, heard back the following Monday.

    Interview

    Store Manager called me on a very next day after I applied. The interview was in couple of days later. It was nice, but a very formal interview with set of questions and I feel like we are going just through motion because they already set for the internal candidate. It dos make sense to me, but in this case why the waist each other time?
