    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    I was recruited by Macy's so my interview experience was more like I was interviewing them as to why I should leave the company I was with at the time. It was refreshing to have a company want to explain to me why they thought they were a good fit for me versus the other way around. The discussions focused around what was important for me to have in a career and how they could be those things for me.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview was straightforward and well organized. There was a case study that we had to present to the recruiter as well as a Q and A. I was interviewed by two different individuals, which I think was an affective technique. Everyone was very friendly. The interview lasted approximately an hour. I heard back from them in a month, and accepted the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macy's (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    For executives- you are recruited by an HR manager specifically meant to hire managers. This person will interview you to see of you are qualified to be a manager. If you are qualified, the executive recruiter will then pass you off to any department in need of managers - REGARDLESS OF YOUR EXPERIENCE/KNOWLEDGE. For instance, all of your work history/experience could be in cosmetics, and you may very well get passed off to a "Men's Apparel" executive for consideration. They're just looking for basic skills, not passion.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Bozeman, MT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was completed online initially, then I was brought in for a formal interview, then computer based training.
