If only they paid better
Counter Manager / Sales (Current Employee), Chula Vista, CAOctober 18, 2014
Pros: amazing discount, perks from vendors for certain positions
Cons: low pay, expensive health benefits
I really enjoy working at Macy's but at times feel that the corporate structure of pay and benefits keeps us from advancing in life.

They offer opportunity to learn and advance, it is easy to find a supportive management staff that will mentor you and help you grow and move to the next level.

I love working here I just wish the pay was a livable wage.

Very flexible
Sales/Customer Associate (Current Employee), Lehigh Valley, PAOctober 18, 2014
Pros: schedule flexibility
Cons: wages
I really enjoy working for Macy's. It is a good company to work for. Managers and co-workers are nice and the best part is the flexibility you have with your schedule. You can pretty much make your week schedule using all the tools they have available.
The only downside is the pay, they pay minimum wage for most positions.

Beauty Advisor for Lancome Cosmetics
Beauty Advisor, Lancôme Cosmetics (Current Employee), Columbia, MDOctober 16, 2014
Pros: free makeup, great teamwork, great hours.
Cons: working the weekends.
Macy's is a great place to work. My co-workers are fun, knowledgeable, and are definitely a part of a team. My day starts with opening the register, attending the morning rally, and getting my counter ready for the day. Our team advises customers on skin care, makeup advice, and provides one-on-one consultations. We prepare merchandise for selling, – more... handle stock, organize our products, and interact with all customers. I love having a customer come in, asks questions, and together we find a beauty skin/makeup routine, and they leave feeling better about themselves when they first came in. – less

Taugh me new things about retail
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Jefferson Valley, NYOctober 15, 2014
Pros: like working with people from customers to employees and helping them
Cons: demanding hours for weekends and holidays
Either you are an opener or a closer. Either way you open or close your register on a daily basis. You are assigned a dept but that can change any point during a shift.
You go from helping customers find merchandise to paying for the product they want. If we dont have we offer to find for them and have shipped.
Take payments for them help them if they – more... have questions with a bill by calling customer service and helping them understand the issue.
If they also want to apply for a card we can help them with that as well.
We also help restock merchandise and organize the store floor when we have down time. – less
