Great place for high school/college students, but base pay isn't enough to live off.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

ProsGreat culture. Fun place to work. Great sales, so it's easy to create a clientele.

ConsNo incentives to work hard. You start off making minimum wage (plu comission), and there's no opportunity for a rasie in that base pay. Most companies will give you a percentage per quarter/year if your sales numbers are up to par or exceeding goals. Macy's doesn't.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer incentives like percentage raises per quarter, etc. to employers if you actually want to see them do a great job with their tasks. Also, maybe not have so many sales. Sales bring in customers, but it gives them the idea that your store and the merchandise is cheap if everything is constantly on sale. Maybe you could pay employees more if they're weren't so many sales.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
