There is too much emphasize on opening new star reward accounts and scorecards for very little salary.

Pros

The associates are nice and fun to work with and the quality of the merchandise is above average. There is an extra employee discount and benefits are offered.

Cons

Sales goals are made and everyone tries to get to the register so they can make their goal. Not a culture of "team player" but one of competition and rewards to those who can make customers sign up for credit cards.

Advice to Management

There should be a way that we are encouraged to work as a team not against each other. The salary should be higher for a higher quality employee.

    Pros

    Macys worked around school schedule well.

    Cons

    Macys management put little time or effort into training employees or even assisting when something out of the ordinary came up. As someone with a great deal of previous retail experience, I was more than capable of handling most issues but at times, some assistance was needed. Management can't condemn employees if they don't take the time to train them.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees. Put customers first - ALWAYS.

  2. Hard work, always busy, sometimes offered overtime

    Pros

    Pay was better than some office jobs I've worked in. Manager was very appreciative of all my hard work. Overtime was offered during the holidays. Very active job.

    Cons

    Its retail. No downtime. Always on the go. If in a mall you feel like you are stuck in a dungeon. Retail in general is nuts between the hours, no benefits, and no growth opportunities. Discount stinks and you have to have a macys CC or buy a prepaid card to get discount.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the visual shop more organized.
