    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discounts, keeping up with the new styles and finding deals early.

    Cons

    Sales Goals, working on holidays, working until an hour or more after the mall closes

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the sales goals, it only causes problems. Close early on holidays so your workers can enjoy them with their families. If you are going to keep the sales goals then have assoicates whose only job is to put clothes away.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with.

    Cons

    As a commissioned employee u are fronted a base salary of the minimum wage and if you don't sale enough to cover the minimum wage you go into deficit , so when you have a good sales day anything above the minimum wage is deducted to pay off the deficit. Also during the holidays the hours are terrible, no one shops as late as Mayc's decides to stay open so you sit around and waste your time going further and further into deficit. They will take anything back in a return used or not and if it was your sale it is deducted from your pay. Customers have up to a year to return stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not the problem, the problem is the corporate structure. It would be a better company to work for if they just paid a flat rate.
