    I have been working at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team I work with are very supportive, so are the managers. When managers walk the floor they are quick to recognize above-par customer service, and will note it down.

    Cons

    Some of the sales associates are impatient. When the store has a sale, some mistakenly believe they can afford to be rude to customers. This is not a good way to do business because every major retailers needs repeat customers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to customers when they vent or praise sales associates and reward associates accordingly.


  2. "Went smooth and the HR staff was very nice."

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible work schedule.
    - Helpful staff.
    - Above average training.
    - Employee discounts with additional discount opportunities.

    Cons

    - Minimum wage. (however commission can easily surpass this)
    - No electronics sold in store other than a vending machine that sales a few items. Lol.. yes i said vending machine. Not sure who would buy an iPad from one but yeah.

    Advice to Management

    Setting up a proper shift for register training on the floor. Thankfully i'm an electronics guru and have even built registers myself for companies so i know more than most people but what you learn in the training is all you get and you're thrown on floor. That leaves a high probability of error that can easily be resolved without financial loses.
