    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Macy's in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I received an email within a few days asking me to schedule an interview via the internet. I arrived to the interview a few minutes early and waited as other candidates arrived. The interview was in a group format. There were 4 or 5 of us at the same time and we had to role play out on the sales floor.
