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

Pros

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

Cons

No 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 ManagementAdvice

Offer 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.

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are very professional. It's nice to have the employee discount. They have contests where you can win prizes. As long as you have black pants and a black sweater, that's all you need for your work wardrobe.

    Cons

    They ask a lot of you and give extremely low pay. I expected this place to pay more than McDonalds but they don't. Some of the full-timers try to boss the part-timers around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that people are actually getting to take their breaks. There is pressure from other employees not to take breaks. We shouldn't feel guilty when we take our breaks. Continue with the contests - maybe have a contest for full time people and one for part time people instead of lumping us all together. Give us more positive feedback.

    Pros

    easy at managing schedule .....flexible schedule

    Cons

    "Low Pay" for alot of work, not enough pay Or hours... or steady hours per week which is a financial problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager from Men's Depto. it's very immature and clearly cannot handle the professionalism it takes to be a manager.. most of the time she's always irritated or frustrated.
