    Pros

    The discount is not bad especially when combined with any ongoing sales, flexibility/freedom since the store is so big there aren't always managers micromanaging, cash/macy's money incentives

    Cons

    Some of the shifts they make you work are pointless, such as a three hour shift. More like wasting gas getting there than making money.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at those who are actually doing their job and acknowledge/recognize them.

    Pros

    20% employee discount on top of coupons.

    Cons

    sales goal outstandingly ridiculous. they expect EVERYTHING from the sales associate. including check the fitting room, why couldnt they just keep associates who stay in the fitting room and give out the number for the items they have so it would keep the fitting room clean, also less merchandise being stolen. some managers try their best to help their associates. some are greedy always using the store phone and making personal calls. we as associates have to do everything. it is a stressful job even though people make it seem like it isnt. ive worked here for 2 years and i wanted to leave after the first two months. everything is so bad at macys. we make it POSSIBLE for the customers but the associates do everything. clean the floor, check fitting, greet all customers, try and try and ask EVERY CUSTOMER OUT THERE who comes into macys and make them open a macys credit account even though it does mess up their credits. repeatedly fix and fold clothes, ring up customers, help other customers, know about the products your are selling. always always do the magic selling. honestly its hell working for this company. i dont recommend anyone to work here. all they care is about money money and more money. disrespect the employees, stress us about our sales goals. how do you predict a sales amount from the previous year and give the exact same sales as last year? you can not predict if people are going to come and spend a bunch of money at macys that day...

    Advice to Management

    hire new managers, store managers, get rid of sales goals, get back fitting room people, floor training or hands on training should be better.
