Current Employee - Sales Associate in Ann Arbor, MI

I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

Pros

Friendly work environment
Supportive coworkers
Energetic management
Great employee discount
Good benefits package
Flexible schedule (most of the time); easy to adjust if you know in advance

Cons

Low wages
Long hours
High expectations not in line with reality or reflective of pay
Little opportunity to move upwards or laterally
Departments change with little notice and completely change your work environment, but there is no permitted "adjustment period"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you pay your employees Walmart wages, and pose yourself as Nordstroms, there's going to be a disconnect reflected in your employees, their satisfaction, and their performance. Be aware that a "sense of style" is not a universal, linear thing, and that it's okay for one associate to tag off to another if a client interaction has stalled. Be aware of unethical sales practices on the floor and treat them as unethical, instead of as "frowned upon" but ultimately beneficial to the company, your individual scorecard, etc. If your career is determined by how you manage those below you, then manage consciously, gracefully, and thoughtfully.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Learning new things to do for further in life, some associate discount, fellow associates are helpful, can decide on your own shift

    Cons

    8.25 for that much professional dress code is wrong in my opinion, breaks are ignored which is a horrible thing, bad integration system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with your associates, give associates way for advancement, ordering them around is not communicating. Forcing associates to sell more product will only make way for the dishonest associates
