    Pros

    Okay pay, fun to be near cosmetics, easy going job

    Cons

    low pay, bad management, slow hours days, get in trouble for not selling but not enough people to sell to!

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, and they might actually be excited to come to work

    Pros

    Co-workers were very nice, pay was not bad, discount was great

    Cons

    Management did not listen to us ever, monitored employees more than stealing customers. Very rare advancement, clear favoritism.

    Pros

    At the time: Great department manager (that has changed) Competitive salary (must negotiate) Expansive cosmetics selection and beautiful store discounts -20% everyday , 36% at least once a month avg (36% in cosmetics 2-3 times a year), 60% twice a year for work appropriate clothing. 20% discount at Macy's stores +you can use Macy's coupons most of the time in addition. Medical benefits Great clienteling system Personal business e-mail

    Cons

    Upper management is oblivious to cosmetics politics and how to intervene when appropriate Lacking diversity in management Human Resources is not human or logical. Since the stores remodel the culture is lost and aimless Diminishing client traffic mixed with frequent store sales and events leaves little stability in business

    Advice to Management

    Hire more diverse management (race, age, artistic people, worldly people)!!!! Relax on the dress code and omit adding restrictions not notated in the employee manual. Engage in, and ACT upon creative/constructive internal employee feedback Continue praising associates customer reviews at meetings

    Pros

    Senior leadership, pay, flexibility, proud to work there, growth ability if you want it.

    Cons

    Working nights, weekends and holidays. Technology is not their strength. If you like your current position you may find the expectations are hard to achieve after some time.

    Pros

    Company has good reputation and relationships with the market Very smart people working in corporate office and at management level in stores

    Cons

    Ridiculous workload resulting from Omnichannel transition Terrible office with NO perks No travel to stores Low compensation

    Advice to Management

    You are cutting costs too much and jeopardizing the talent that remains in the organization....try making this a company that people would actually want to work for.
