Great work environment.
You have to offer customers Macy's credit cards, which they will often turn down.
I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)
Lowest pay ever! Demanding you get 5 credits a day. Then changing it to one credit app a shift. I had one slow month and one manager threatened to fire me. Extremely stressful job! Pay starts at $8.00 and barely goes up from there. You get a few cent raise each year which they use the excuse it’s based on how well your store is doing. Many people lose their jobs as there is no sick leave and if you run out of attendance points you’re fired. I’ve even gone to work with the flu. They fired 20 people for no reason in January and now they have 4 people per floor.
Advice to Management
Corporate says don’t take last act back after 30 days, so we tell the customer that, then you over ride the purchase and take it back anyways. It’s become a used clothing store because you allow people to buy, borrow and return anything. Then you wonder why sales are horrific and you have the audacity to base our raise on your destruction of the Company. Yet you still can’t figure out why your stores are closing. Get a clue!

Great scheduling around my class schedule, I was able to learn every area of the store over 4 yrs.
They told us they were closing the store the same day the media was told, with less than 60 days notice of closing.
Advice to Management
Corporate, not management, think of your loyal employees sometimes and not only money at the end of the day.

I took a part-time job in cosmetics at Macy's to make extra cash. Management was great and if you work hard you can advance fairly quickly. I made quite a but of money during the holidays as well. Macy's pays a commission on sales you make and they also pay out Macy's money for each credit card you open. Macy's money saved you so much money off the items you want to buy.
You get called in a lot on your days off but you can always so no. Also, if they call you in or ask you to work longer shifts it is because they like you.
The associate discount is a great perk at working for macys and that you can use it on top of the other sales and discounts.
As a temporary employee I did not get any benefits that a part or full time employee would give. Also because I worked during the christmas holiday, alot of the full time workers were very competitive with meeting their sales goals.
