    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    It was fairly straight forward from a retail perspective. They are closing many locations so you need to be careful and decide if their future is sustainable. Everyone was extremely friendly.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview

    They reached out to me via LinkedIn, and called me in to meet the hiring manager. After that, they called me in again to meet two additional executives, at two separate locations. One week of silence preceded these interviews. After following up with hr (twice), I finally received very positive feedback and they said I would be contacted by the end of the following week regarding a decision. That date came and went with no news from hr. I then received an email from another recruiter within the same organization asking me to interview for a totally different position. I told them I was still waiting to hear back about another role I had interviewed for, but would move forward with this new role if I wasn’t selected. She then apologized for the confusion and confirmed that I was “still in consideration” for the original role, even though I hadn’t heard back. Several weeks later, I followed up again and haven’t received a response from anyone.

    2 on phone interviews, 2 days on-site interview at NYC Herald Square. The first day on-site was more informal where they give you a tour of the biggest Macy's in the world and then you have dinner with potential interviewers . The second day is more rigorous. There will be 2 individual interviews and 1 short case study where you present to the 2 interviewers by yourself after given 10 minutes to work on it, and then 1 group interview with other candidates

    Here are the steps in the recruitment process, which will vary based on the company's recruiting strategies. Do keep in mind that every company has its own recruiting strategy, so it's important to conduct a multi-faced job search and to be sure you're job hunting where companies can find you.

    Simple process. You walk in, wait for the manager who is probably running around the floor to deal with other stuff, then they take you in a conference room. Worked in many departments then left after 3 months.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Schaumburg, IL (US)).

    Interview

    It went extremely well and was very quick. Whether or not that is good is up to you. If you have retail and/or cashier experience I believe this job will be easy for you to get. If you do not have either of those, it may be more difficult for the job.
