Great environment with good opportunities.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Springfield, IL

ProsThe environment at Macy's stores is great for people who like to work with others. If you are relatively solitary, I wouldn't recommend working for this store. The co-workers are great and there seems to be plenty of opportunity for advancement. There are also good benefits for all workers.

ConsYou are required to learn a lot in a short period of time. My first day on the job (after training) was on the sales floor, by myself. However, I felt that my training was sufficient to be on the sales floor and I was able to learn anything necessary to do my job quickly. There are some problems that come up though. Nevertheless, management is always easy to get a hold of when there's a problem.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to not staff people alone on their first day.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
