    Ladies shoes sales Associate - Not what you would expect...

    Commissioned Sales Associate (Former Employee) Aventura, FL

    ProsStore discounts, easy to manage scheduling, support is great as well

    ConsPay is not what I expected... They deduct your hourly pay from your commission and you can even go into deficit, where you owe them money... They do expect you to be there for some shifts that start at 9am, but store doesn't open till 10am, first sales, maybe by 11am... In a commission only job where I'm being deducted hourly from commission, that doesn't feel right to me at all...

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf the Expediting work is taken out of the equation, you will end up with happier, stronger, and most importantly, more motivated sales associates. Expeditors should only be used in really busy days! The sales Associate ends up going and getting the product himself anyways... And that way, Macy's would be able to afford paying a "real" hourly + commission to sales associates, allowing them to earn a decent living without sacrificing so much... In this specific function, when pay is not what is expected, it clouds the general corporate perspective of the Sales Associate throughout the whole corporation in a domino effect. Such a great company like Macy's should not allow that to happen..

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advise to management is to in all situations be professional and don't allow your personal feeling determine someone worth!
