    Pros

    Discount, fun helping customers, fellow employees are great and supportive for the most part, hours can be flexible, good for enthusiastic young workers.

    Cons

    Sales quotas prevent you from really having the customer's best interest at heart and it can be difficult to meet your quota sometimes when other employees bogart your sale. Those looking to support a family on a sales associate's income will have great difficulty.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to back up employees, especially in customer squabbles. It is good for morale to feel like your superiors have your back.

    Pros

    Great positive enviornment. Lots of energy from other employees. Lots of potential to make money and gratis from cosmetic company. All black clothes. ,80 percent black clothes

    Cons

    None can't think of any other than it was about a 2 week interview process and I was overly excited so the waiting for phone calls was nerve wracking

    I have been working at Macy's (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no Pros for working here!!

    Cons

    Horrible disorganized lazy management not worry about the employees only worry about you constantly hounding customers to open a Macy's account, Plenti card and adding customers to a MyClient to bother the customer to come in a buy something

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees and quit annoying customers to open an account or buying a coupon to get maybe 20-30% off on their next purchase it's truly annoying and demeaning to the employees to try and make this billion dollar company richer while the employees get crapping minimum pay

    Pros

    Great employee discount, nice people, good work environment. Overall, great starting job with decent salary, and the hours are good too.

    Cons

    Salary could be better, training could be more focused on the specific role that you are training for, now it is mainly focused on the general roles (of which there are multiple).

    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    The managers were engaging and always had knowledge to pass down. The POS system is complicated at first like most programs, but easy to maneuver around.

    Cons

    The employee belonging storing area was just some shelves in the warehouse. Never really felt safe leaving my things there..
