Interview

I applied for seasonal Merchandising associate. Was called a few days later for a phone interview. They asked questions like, why do you want to work for Macy's? , have you ever managed a group before?, etc etc) then I was called again about 3 days later saying that the early morning shift that I wanted for merchandising wasn't available but Receiving had early morning shifts available, so I told them it was okay and accepted the position. They told me to come in for paid train that Thursday and Friday. After that I haven't heard from them, nor did I have a schedule on insite. I called and went up there a few times to speak to a manager but every time I was told they were in a meeting. Finally about three weeks later I called and asked for a manager's direct number and got ahold of the Receiving manager and he told me to come in the next day.

    Interview

    I applied for the Executive Development Program as a friend had gone through the process. First there is a phone interview. Then, there is a 3 day on site interview with about 25 other individuals. At the time, they let you choose between going to the Department Stores or .COM. You also choose between buying and planning. The 3 days consist of ice breaking sessions, speeches from past EDP's, HR managers and senior executives for both stores and .COM, There is also a retail math test as well as a case study where you work with your peers. Last, there is a one on one interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process was kind of a hassle for me from the beginning. I scheduled my interview for later in the week. I drove over an hour to get to the mall and they called me when I was pulling into the store and said they just saw my interview was today and the lady I was to meet with was actually on vacation. Apparently, the computer system and the managers do not go hand and hand. They made me come back a week later. Initially, my interview was for a visual merchandising position. After the interview, she suggested that perhaps I would be more of a fit in the merchandising position. For the actual interview, she read the questions right off a sheet (mono-toned). The questions were your typical, "tell me of a time..." questions.
