Must be passionate for retail
Sales Associate (Former Employee), ‘Aiea, HIApril 22, 2014
Pros: friendly coworkers, sufficient breaks
Cons: pushes to sell, not worried about employees as people
I enjoyed the work environment, but it was clear that the company is only worried about making money. Of course, this is all fine and well. Companies have to make money. But, the constant hounding of the management to meet and exceed sales goals was overbearing and made me hate going to work every day. However, the coworkers were friendly and made the – more... experience more bearable. – less

engaging and prodctive workplace
Sales associate (Former Employee), Valley Stream, NYApril 22, 2014
Pros: the learning experience
Cons: the scheduling
Within the time period I worked at Macys, my first couple of months I learned and experienced so much. The management is strong there at Macys.I learned to multitask, build up my communications skills, make connection with my customers, open Macys credit cards and keep the customers coming back. the hardest part is doing everything at one time. I enjoyed – more... recovering the selling floor and assisting customers find what they needed. A typical day at work would be helping on the selling floor, recovery and being on the register base. – less

Good place to work
Chanel Beaute Consultant (Current Employee), wellingtonApril 21, 2014
Macys is a good place to work. A typical day at work is stress free, there is a goal to meet, i learned how to make magic with customers, amazing customer service, amazing co workers, hardest part of the job is dealing with cranky customers, but that problem is everywhere, the most enjoyable part is the coworkers.

Friendly environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Newark, CAApril 21, 2014
I worked for macy's for over 3 years, it was an extraordinary opportunity, I have learned to manage how to deal with humble to so not friendly customers. I loved working with my team co-workers and loved working as a sales associate. The most enjoyable part of this job was to come in to work and be able to help each and every customer with great ambition – more... so that they leave to want to come back. – less

Everyday was the same boring routine. Felt like a robot after just a few days, going through the same motions again and again.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), St. Peters, MOApril 19, 2014
Pros: friendly coworkers
Cons: dull, boring routine
The dress code was drab and boring: black pants with a black top and black shoes. Felt like I was going to work in a funeral home not a department store.

Was told to approach customers and told to interact in a friendly manner but when did so, got in trouble for talking and being chatty.

Hated the workplace because got in trouble for interacting with – more... customers (customer service) and also when not talking to them.

After just a few days, the routine became so automatic that I felt as if I were a machine going through the same motions every day. – less
