    A lot of promises, unrealistic expectations

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Ann Arbor, MI

    ProsFriendly 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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I am sorry that I gave this company 6 years of my life....

    Cosmetic Manager (Former Employee)
    Ann Arbor, MI

    ProsGood discount
    401k
    Paid vacation
    Easy dress code

    ConsNo respect towards employees
    No appreciation for good work ethic
    Horrible management
    No one who works at Macy's is happy to be employed by Macy's and it shows.
    Employees must have their credit card to receive store discount
    Terrible hours.....no balance between work and home life
    Terrible pay for what is expected
    PRESSURE TO OPEN CREDIT CARDS IS THE WORSE. Raises are based more on this than on sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employee......if there ever should be a union formed to make a work place better, this would be the perfect place to form one!

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

    Exciting and fast paced in Women's Shoes

    Women's Shoe Sales (Current Employee)
    Ann Arbor, MI

    ProsGreat employees
    I can't stay still so constantly moving for the job is a pro
    Base + commission
    Part time flex but I'm still able to pick up decent amounts of hours
    Clean, organized stock room

    ConsSuch a large company and managers are pulled for various tasks, I never received proper training or complete training.
    The pay is kind of low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay some more attention to newer employees as certain jobs on the floor can get overwhelming.
    Increase pay wage as commission really isn't that much either.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should lead by example. Work and support employees not just walk past them or a mess.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
