I am a full time hourly employee with Macys at One their closing locations. They are transferring associates to different stores without any

More details to this question:
Interviews having to take place. However, I am being asked to interview for any positions that I am interested in. The pay, hours and job duties are "substantially equivalent" to the position I am in now. Is it discrimination that I am being told I must interview when other associates are being transferred and do not have to interview?

Discrimination in the legal sense relates to treatment different than others due to protected classifications, but, your description mentions nothing about any protected classification or alleged or perceived treatment because of your protected group.  Thus, alone on the facts, while you may be treated differently, no laws seems to apply to his situation.  An employer may decide as an employee at will to not offer you opporunites for many lawful factual or financial reasons.   Thus again, discrimination requires some violation of protected rights, but here these facts do not fit with in any unlawful discrimination.
