The Worst Place I Ever Worked!!

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) Oak Brook Mall Branch, IL

ProsThe discounts and sales were good, but still not worth it

ConsAs a college graduate, and successful business person for over 30 years in various levels of management, I can say without a doubt, Macy's is the most poorly run companies I have ever been around. Most of the management is outright disrespectful to most who work there. I started in what I thought would be fun, as a seasonal employee and kept on for another 3 years, part time.Mind you, I never was asked to stay, but simply kept being put on the schedule.I am a very hard worker, but nothing was good enough.Standing at a cash register literally non-stop for a sold 3 hours was exhausting, but the worst part was when there was a slight break, a manager would come out of no where and "order" the sales people around. It was so disrespectful, and never a team effort whereby management would help.The store manager was errogant, unapproachable, and never smiled.Theory was to not give in to the customer, unless they were insistant. In addition, the store is filthy-floors consistantly dirty, and rugs rarely vacuumed.In the Marshall Field days, porters would come in nightly and buff and polish the floors. I only stayed on because I truly enjoyed working with the customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse some respect and teamwork-doing so will get you employees that will bend over backwards to do the job at 150%

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
