Creative and fun place to work.
Visual Manager (Current Employee), Prairie Village KS, Independence MO, Lone Tree COAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Creative, physical, travel
Cons: healthcare, stress
In charge of the entire look of the department store. Lead a visual team but also oversaw merchandising team and selling team. I learned not to take things personally and that we're all in it for the same results. The hardest part of the job is inconsistencies with upper management and keeping everyone happy. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching customers respond to my setups.

under staffed and over worked
Seasonal General Sales Associate (Former Employee), Arcadia, CAAugust 1, 2015
Pros: it's a job
Cons: pay, workplace, staffing, hours
Walmart is one of the richest families in America yet their employees only make $8 an hour. There are never enough people on shift and the customers treat you like you are beneath them.

Sales Manager (Current Employee), Miami, FLAugust 1, 2015
Pros: Recognition based on merits and results
Cons: Schedules do not balance personal life, compensation does not balance the amount of responsibilities
Not about the numbers, is about people. You drive your own development, recognition and advancement opportunities from within the company based on your results: both quantitative and qualitative. You are successful if you embrace their initiatives and drive your business with passion and commitment, engage with your direct reports and lead by example using all the coaching tools available to you. Likewise, engage with your store and district team, and your customers!!!.

Macy's Fragrance Specialist
Counter Manager for Estee Lauder (Former Employee), NYJuly 31, 2015
I developed crucial brand knowledge while delivering high customer sales. I learned to approach fragrance sales, as with all retail sales, tailored to the individual customer desires. By this I mean, there is no one product that every customer will like, as a sales professional I am acute to the customer at hand. I am a natural people-person who has a professional attitude with strong work place ethics. Due to these qualities, I added positivity to the workplace environment and interactions with co-workers,

Grea place, terrible hours
recievers (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIJuly 30, 2015
Pros: great team
Cons: not enough hours
I worked as a reciever, and it was good cause i had school at night and only had to be to work early in the morning. I just unloaded the trucks, process merhcnadise, and did a little shipping. Very rarely i had to work on the floors. plenty of room for advancement. In fact you just had to ask to be put somewhere else. But the job i had was back breaking i admit. it takes 24 hours to process a truck, but they want you to do it in 6 hours or less. which is why alot of our hours got cut. and some of us weren't getting paid for like 3 weeks. but again the management was really nice, the coworkers were friendly. like evryone is willing to help each other in some way. it really boosted my self esteem working there.

productive workplace. All about Customer Service
Sales Specialist Associate/ Visual Associate (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYJuly 30, 2015
Days at work were good, lots to do. Mostly good customers.
I learned how to handle many different person to person situations, I can fold like a pro, and multitask well.
Management depends on the manager.
Coworkers varied, high turnover rate. Then again some people stay 20+ years.
I enjoyed making people feel good, and seeing the smiles on their faces as they left my register. Also, making my sales goal was both rewarding and harsh.

Sales Support Specialist (Current Employee), Paramus, NJJuly 30, 2015
Working at Macy's was a great opportunity to fine tune specific skills like leadership and team building. I was fortunate enough to work along side the executive branch and learn about the behind the scenes action that goes into preparing a store for sales, events, or even the average work day.

Nice to work but no work life balance
Merchandise Execution Coordinator (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 30, 2015
Cons: Healthcare
A typical day here is always productive as we deal within an aggressive timeline with projects. This is actually the most enjoyable part of the job for me as I like the rush and thrill of working to complete an assignment!

The hardest part of the job however is working without enough information to execute effective and efficiently.

Decent place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHJuly 30, 2015
Pretty flexible scheduling, you pick up most of your own shifts, however sometimes very few are available to pick up. Hours vary a lot - some weeks you'll get 30 and some weeks you'll get 7 as part time.
