Seasonal Associate (Former Employee), Chula Vista, CA – April 16, 2015
Pros: Fast pace
Cons: Rude customers, crowds, and it was retail so in general a little stressful
-I was a seasonal associate and I loved the fast paced work but the holidays turn people (customers) into maniacs:)
-I also believe that the seasonal associates deserve to get an earlier start just to get a hang of the cashier and routines. The customers would yell at the associates if we had some kind of issue or holdup with the register. Customers were very irritated and stressed with the pace and long lines.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Collierville, TN – April 15, 2015
Macy's is a fun work place that is like a family. They work around my school schedule and they are very flexible. They communicate with you well and they make sure that you do have a life outside of their.
SALE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Manhattan, NY – April 15, 2015
Pros: flexiable hours at work, great managements
Cons: short breaks
a typical day at work would be i will arrive at 9 am, open all the register, organizer my work areas and get ready to start my day. Macy's have great management and they are very flexible with their schedule. they work with you to see what time works for to start working, just in case you have other responsibility like school, or kids. i never had a problem with any of my co-workers we was all friendly with each other. i wouldn't say there was anything had about working at Macy's, it just got really busy during the holidays and you need to have patients to deal with your customers. the best part about the job was see so many people from different places, and different cultures come there to shop.
Provided Customer Service (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – April 15, 2015
Pros: discounts, assisting customers
Cons: no health benefits
a typical day at Macy's would consists of me being there around 9:00am and having team meetings with my co workers. At Macy's I used to run my reports for the day. As management I learned how to achieve the goal of professional customer service. My co workers work as a team to help me complete many tasks threw out the day. The hardest part of the day would be having to leave at a specific time and wants of more hours. The most enjoyable time of the day is starting work!

Private Label Manager (Former Employee), Short Hills, NJ – April 14, 2015
Sales, service, merchandising, managing of employees. I learned that working in retail management is very difficult and time consuming. One must have great patience and be willing to make sacrifices to work in this industry.
The hardest part of this job was convincing clients to purchase accessories. Creating a need when there wasn't one can be difficult.
