    The interview was rather brief. I waited for about 3 minutes before my interviewer called me in, and when I came back for the interview, the interviewer just described the job to me, told me the pay, and asked if I was okay with that, and then I received the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    There were two back-to-back interviews on campus. The questions were mostly behavioral based but also asked questions about the company and the industry. I learned that I got an interview a few weeks after submitting my resume and then heard back from the recruiter about a week after my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (Leawood, KS) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Short few typical questions
    Had 1 on 1 interview. Questions were short and none required a very lengthy answer.
    was giving an offer and also was told a background check would be preformed.
    Lengthiest part of the process was the time the background check took, which was about 3-4 days (may have taken longer since I was hired on a weekend)

    Interview

    Just your basic behavioral questions -- nothing tricky. The frustrating part was that after I went in for an in person interview, they never responded back again. I even followed up by e-mail, but never received any response. It would be nice for them just to give me any form update -- instead of having no reply.
