Support Associate (Former Employee) – Lexington, 40503 – February 10, 2016
I enjoyed my working at Macy's. My supervisor was very friendly. I would start the day very early. I put merchandise away in the store before customers would arrive. If employees did not finish he or she would have to work while the store is open and this would sometimes be difficult especially on a sale date.

The managers and staff are all welcoming and enjoyable to work with. Everyone treats the customers with respect and integrity even those like myself who work behind the scenes and have little customer interaction.

A typical day at work consist of connecting with customers, providing outstanding customer service and driving sales. Providing great service encourages customers to return. Management being available in difficult situations helps to resolve issues in a timely manner. Having co-workers who works as a team and helpful when busy/hectic can be very helpful. Seeing customers happy with selection when assistant requires and eager to shop more gives you a awesome feeling.

Men's Clothing Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – February 9, 2016
I learned a lot about customer service importance from Macy's. Co-workers were mostly friendly except when in commission sales. Management had a difficult time controlling co-workers who have worked at Macy's for a long time. These co-workers would bully inexperienced workers to get sales. Macy's was accommodating for my school schedule.
Merchandising Team Manager (Store Volume (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – February 9, 2016
Macy's is an ever-changing environment adjusting to the needs of the customer. Because of the size and structure of the company, sometimes there is instability that cause slow adjustments and unstableness for the associates.
Macy's is a great place to learn, grow, and develop in current and future positions if one desires. There can be (as with most retailers) a struggle to maintain life/work balance.
Overall, Macys is a solid company to work for and I am intrigued to see what the future holds.
In general I enjoyed Macy's. The company culture was great and most of my Managers were too. The only difficulties I had were the pressure of the card applications and the coupons not always working. Returns in general were pretty easy to take care of and maybe I'll work for them again in the future
Good company culture, fun environment
Management was pushy sometimes, credit apps and myclient

Seasonal Support Staff (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IN – February 9, 2016
Your day to day always changes. Management is great and willing to work with your schedule. The hardest part of the job is that sometimes you can't rely on new hires and have to take on the extra work.
