    Executive Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I originally sent my resume through a college job board. Within a month, I received a call asking if I was still interested, and then set up a face-to-face interview two days after the call. I met with two project managers and the VP for about an hour total. Three days after that, I received an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not overly technical, mostly to make sure I actually had the background listed on my resume. The hardest part was talking about personal projects in depth.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not given the opportunity to negotiate.

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeksinterviewed at Macy's Systems & Technology.

    Interview Details

    They have no concept of paying top dollars. It's like they want you bad but as cheap as they possibly can. Which is what made me turn down the offer. Worst interview experience ever. I really liked the manager and lead guy I was suppose to be working for, and they really truly liked me too. After video interview, I was flown in, everything went great, everybody all pumped up. Once arrived back home, comes the incompetent HR rep. Plus, an incompetent VP who could barely speak a proper sentence of English (at least I could not understand him), acting all big shot and want to "interview" me over the phone for final approval i guess. Which did happen, but HR started low balling me with ridiculous offer (less than what I've been making AND upsetting part is that I already told him prior to phone screening what I make and my expectation is) See more in question section

    Interview Questions
    • Her argument was about cost of living difference and why they cannot go higher and that if I accept within my first year I'll get promoted and be at the paylevel I'm seeking .. Huh ? Oh ok !! Whatever! I feel they really need to get a check of reality and not try fooling people. Anyway, after reading such bad reviews I'm so glad it didn't work out. Things have been a lot better since I turned their offer down. Oh and they sure know (HR in particular) that is to avoid paying you for interview expenses, I had to send multiple reminders to them to pay me for expenses, which they eventually did. So be aware of that! I had to use my card for hotel night initially since they gave a bad # when they reserve me a room. That's all folks   Answer Question
