    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's in October 2012.

    Interview

    30 of behavior with one manager and 30 mins of case study with another manager. The behavior included common question like your greatest strength/weakness. The case study was where the manager give you a sheet of paper with 5 employees with their personal traits and selling records for the past few months. Then, he left for fifteen minutes and told you to analyze the information and decide how the bonus should be split and who should be promoted. Each person had flaws, whether personality or technical so I don't really know exactly if there was a right answer.

    Interview

    Signed up to interview through university job board. Was instructed to apply online for internship through Macy's, and took a 30 minute personality test before actual interview occurred.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was in person. It was one-on-one and was very professional. They were testing your knowledge of retail and of Macy's specifically. They want candidates who come from diverse places, and will bring a fresh set of eyes and opinions to the company. They want to hire young and help you grow, so it helped to talk about long term career goals within Macy's.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macy's (State College, PA).

    Interview

    There were two interviews. The first one was more of a "problem solver" interview on how to deal with employees and selling Macy's credit cards. Everyone was really nice though. The overall experience was not bad
