    Former Employee - Sales Associate In Macy's in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Macy's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful environment and trendy merchandise, great employee discounts and good benefits. Gratis and commission for sales associates in fragrances/makeup department. Opportunity to get more hours and move from part/time to full/time when you work hard and make your sales goals and Star Rewards goals.

    Cons

    Hard to balance between family/private life and store/business requirements (lot of nights and weekends as well as no vacation during promotions in cosmetics/fragrances department and from November till middle of January). A lot of pressure and high expectations in sales and Star Rewards results. Very generous return policy for customers (can return used makeup/skincare and fragrances items) but it effects commission paid associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your respect and work as a team with your sales associates. Use coaching, give realistic sales goals and train associates on every day base. Show your professionalism and experience when on the selling floor. Have an open door policy and show that you care about your associates problems and concerns.
