    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Associates learn a lot of things compared to other retail store associates which will be an advantage if you want to have a career in retail.

    Cons

    Sales Associates do more than other regular retail sales associates ex: Most, if not all retail stores have their separate Customer Service dept to do return and exchange, store card payments, etc while Macys sales associate do that work. Macys "Sales" associate work on registers, floor merchandise, stock room merchandise and even cleaning dusting of floor tables, shelves and fixtures, oh and clientele.
    Macys associates are over worked and under paid.
    Macys associates 90% have No career advancements no matter how good you are. Instead they will use you to your limits till you quit.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers who can lead by being able to earn the respects of the associates not by their Titles. Most managers are not taken seriously by the associates because they lack people skills, arrogant and self absorbed.
    The future of your company lies on the proficiency of your sales associates since they are your front liners take good care of them.
    Set a career path for your good performing associates so they will be loyal to you and stay with you.
    Quick turn over of employees are not good to any company.
