    Current Employee - Ladies Shoes Sales Associate (Commission) of Macy in The Woodlands, TX

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In commission, specifically women's shoes, you can make a lot of money during the holidays, and a lot of the time the associates are very friendly.

    Cons

    The emphasis on selling credit cards is extreme. It really doesn't matter how hard you work. Of you're not selling enough credit cards they send you to a "credit university" which is as condescending as it is insulting. The management is click-ish and lazy. If you're not in a managers friend group you're not getting promoted. The customers can also be horrible (but that's kinda true everywhere... But its extra true here).

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate you're management style. The management crisis at the store (and the store is in crisis mode) starts at the top. Management needs to stop pushing its responsibilities onto its associates and do their job themselves.

  3. Very flexible for students

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    They are very flexible when it comes to adjusting work hours with your schedule, and their point system allows for call outs without being severely penalized.

    Cons

    Management can be disorganized and chaotic at times, depending on the department and location. Depending on managers, they can make your experience at Macy's positive or completely ruin it.

  4. Sucks

    Former Employee - Merchandiser in The Woodlands, TX
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Flexibility, meet new people, easy, extra money type job, freedom, no micromanging, relaxing except on holidays or back to school shopping or big saie days

    Cons

    Work weekends, low low low pay, not worth it to me, but thats how I feel about all retail jobs, sucky hours when business is slow, overworked at times, treating like you're disposable, fake people especially management who look down on you

    Advice to Management

    More organization, stop the lies with the "anonymous surveys" yall make us do. they are not anonymous. They give you a scheduled time to take the "anonymous" surveys. Treat employees with respect

  5. Don't do commissioned sales

      Nice employees get to do whatever since the management is never around

      Pay sucks, management disappears, never to be in sight!!! Ask for too much and makes you work like a slave... Always short handed which means be ready to work

      Advice to Management

      Managers need to check on employees more often and help instead of hiding
