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

I worked at Macy's part-time (more than an year)

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.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The ONLY pro to working at this Macy's location was Macy's fabulous online scheduling!

    Cons

    Most of their management is extremely rude and unhelpful (with one or two exceptions), and the store is very unorganized (borderline ghetto)!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of scolding associates for not getting any loyalties, Thanks for Sharings, pre-sales, ect. offer them incentive! A few encouraging words goes a LONG way! Also, when an associate is in need of assistance, DON'T ACT LIKE YOU'RE TO GOOD OR TOO BUSY TO ASSIST THEM! As for the presentation of the store, I'd care A LOT more! Instead of instructing associates to throw clothes on random racks, have associates put them where they are supposed to go, and, please, have size associates size the clothes for goodness sake!
