    Application

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

    Interview

    There were two back-to-back interviews on campus. The questions were mostly behavioral based but also asked questions about the company and the industry. I learned that I got an interview a few weeks after submitting my resume and then heard back from the recruiter about a week after my interview.

    Short few typical questions Had 1 on 1 interview. Questions were short and none required a very lengthy answer. was giving an offer and also was told a background check would be preformed. Lengthiest part of the process was the time the background check took, which was about 3-4 days (may have taken longer since I was hired on a weekend)

    Interview

    Just your basic behavioral questions -- nothing tricky. The frustrating part was that after I went in for an in person interview, they never responded back again. I even followed up by e-mail, but never received any response. It would be nice for them just to give me any form update -- instead of having no reply.

    • The unexpected question came when she asked me what animal would I describe myself as.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    there was no negotiating they gave you a hiring amount and that was that...I'm guessing it was because I was a college student.

    I applied online and recieved an e-mail saying they would like to interview me. A week later I went in for my interview and the manager was very nice.. She asked about 6 questions such as name a time where you were on a team and someone wasn't participating what did you do? and name a time when you saw someone doing something immoral and what did you do to stop it. she also asked about my past experiances.. She told me that they actually didn't have any spots available but she would call me if something came up. About a week later she called and offered me the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email to set up interview a week or so later. Interviewer didn't have my application because it "wouldn't print", so knew nothing about me with the exception of my name. Thankfully, I had shown up with a resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were schedule-related, logistics, availability. Only one "Explain what you would do..." question. It was concerning time constraints on the job. Oh, and there was, of course the "Tell me about yourself?"   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macy's (Valley Stream, NY).

    Interview

    got called back for the interview within 2 weeks. Got asked questions like, why do i want to work at Macys, Years of retail experience, How to make the store a better place, and stuff like that. After that they said they would call me, but they never call they usually email. Took about another 2 weeks for them to get back to me saying i got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here. Never answer for the money. Some people do and thats a no no. say something like the environment, the public and when it comes to holidays there is no place better to work and be, (except maybe home) throw in a joke if your interviewer is a joker and is laughing.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me $8.75 and wasn't really a negotiation just told me when i would start working.
