    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Made $14 an hour plus commission in under a year. (also recieved TONS of free skin care & other incentives). SF Union Square location is a Union job-some love this, I didn't. Made tons of friends which made for a fun environment with good music.

    Cons

    Union dues. Must be cut out for job that is very cut throat. Daily sales goals, counter goals, & credit card goals to meet. Must meet sales goals without stepping on co-workers toes because everyone can turn on you & c-block you from making any sales. Must have tough skin. Some of the practices & values behind this company are also a bit shocking. Hard to spend money there when you know what they're all about.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are under a lot of stress & it trickles down.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Good learning experience, dealing with politics and competing personalities
