          Former Employee - Sales Associate in Lewiston, ID

          I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Team meets each morning, knew what was expected of you, training was highly informative, and employee discounts.

          Cons

          Required to work all major holiday times and long weekends, sales goals were sometimes too high (especially for the area I worked in), always pushed to sell credit accounts, pay wasn't much higher than Idaho minimum wage (which is only $7.25 still).

          No opinion of CEO

          I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Sometimes you get to make people feel really good about themselves. Employees, not management, are pretty great.

          Cons

          Crap hours, rude management(not all, but most), no matter how awesome you do, your not doing well enough. Example your counter was the best in the district but you didn’t hit sales goal by $200? Not good enough. Spent hours cleaning your counter but missed one spot? Not good enough. Spent the past hour with a client that resulted in a $200 sale? Well Why wasn’t it a $300 sale? And so on. Management makes you feel lazy,...

          Advice to Management

          Appreciate your people. When you lose multiple good workers notice that YOU are the problem.
