    Store Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Macy's in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in October and was contacted regarding a "chat" in January. It took place over the phone. I found it to be pretty typical, just generally getting to know you questions. The HR rep told me more about the position during this time as well, which was helpful. I learned that this position would not be a good fit for me because it just seemed like shadowing in the store rather than actually having responsibility.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's (Broomfield, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    After the initial call from a representative, I was set up with an orientation/online group interview with the recruiter where we learned more about the company and was able to ask questions. After the orientation/online group interview, I received a one on one interview with that same recruiter. Once that was complete and I moved onto the next stage, I interviewed with the regional manager who would be the deciding factor to whether or not I received the internship. The next day after the interview with the regional manager, the recruiter called back and gave me an offer. I had 14 days to accept or decline the offer.

    It was a very simple recruitment process. They came to my college's career fair and I got an interview on the spot. They have an interview pre-night information session that is extremely helpful to go to prepare for the interview. The interview consisted of a behavioral interview and a case study. Both were relatively easy and conversational.
