Pros: schedule flexibility, great discount, work environment that doubles as shopping environment
Cons: lack of autonomy, role enmeshment, too many programs to suggest to customers
It is a good place to work. It will provide valuable experience to persons' looking to gain experience within the fashion and retail environment. There is flexibility with the work schedule, therefore associates can balance personal life and work life. The coworkers I have at Macys are now considered my friends. They are great people. We rely on each other to get through the bad days and make the good days better. The hardest part of working at macys is their is little autonomy. Also, their is a lot of things being implemented that an associate has to remember and is judged on. Lastly, it is difficult to manage giving superb customer service as an associate should along with having to do the duties of other departments such as support. The most enjoyable part of the job is growing your sense of fashion, meeting new people, and making someone's day with good customer service.
