Pros

Best place to learn about retail with exposure to a variety of products and vendors. The work gets "too hands-on" sometimes, but it really is what it takes to learn so next time you will know how to manage through the process/big picture.

Cons

Pay can be a little bit more competitive considering the level of stress (especially during holidays) and the frequent over-8-hour days, monthly performance-based bonus would be really nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enhance training program for new employees, both associate and management (beyond technical training and sales standard, budget hours for formal shadowing/training-on-floor) so they can be more productive when they actually start.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Great discount and flexible hours. I received either 20 or 30% off (I forget exactly which it was). Because I was seasonal, I was able to say what hours I could and cannot work and it made it easier to manage my personal life.

    Cons

    I was payed $7 an hour. I thought that was a horrible seasonal wage. I only took it b/c I was able to take advantage of the discount. Christmas shopping was almost all done at Macys. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt ignored and unappreciated because the seasonal associated weren't treated as all the others. I felt out of place and as though I was a stranger.

    Pros

    Macy's is a well-known company, and it is a fun place to work at. Generally speaking, most of the people you will work with are friendly, and the customers generally have good intentions. Also, the consistency of how the store runs is comforting, especially since each store employs so many people- you meet so many people working there!

    Cons

    Credit card opening- abilities are stressed, and if you are unsuccessful or feel bashful about asking people to open an account (no matter what the economic climate), you will probably hear about this fact on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put equal stress on customer service abilites and the credit-card opening abilities.
