It was new experience for me.
Seasonal Employee (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 14, 2014
My work day started from 4 in the morning to prepare the store and get everything ready for the customers. I learned a lot about what goes behind the scenes and how much pressure employees are under to get everything ready. Every day was different than the other. I worked with different managers and different spots in the store. Everyone had his/her – more... own way of getting things together. I did not have a certain co-workers, every day there were someone new. The hardest thing was too many things need to be done in little time. The enjoyable part was the experience of a new field and get to know how everything get done. – less

Buyer Job phenome
Buyer (Former Employee), Citrus Heights, CAAugust 14, 2014
Pros: happy brides
Cons: not enough enpowerment given to my operators
Working for Federated Logistics was challenging and rewarding. I would create purchase orders and key receive them as well. I worked closely with many table top vendors and warehouse managers. I was responsible for CSF orders and maintaining count by doing inventory of all the tabletop merchandise. I supplied the table top merchandise to all the West – more... coast stores. I was team Leader of the Macys' Bridal Registry and taught L.U.S.A.T. to my 20 operators. I was responsible for quality control and escalation calls from customers. I did order inquiry as well. The hardest part of the job was inventory. Best thing ever was ordering that one piece the customer could never find and getting it to the customer for a good price and limited time! Also I loved being the president Of our volunteer group because we helped out the less fortunate. – less

Macy's Receiving
SUPPORT STAFF (Current Employee), Chandler, AZAugust 12, 2014
Pros: manager has open door policy, motivates and encourages team.
Cons: no breaks on short shifts; warehouse can be hot during the summer months
The truck arrives at 6 am; the afternoon crew begins unloading the truck for the evening crew to prepare the merchandise and place on the floor.

Everyone is rotated with different duties which may be open boxes and stack the merchandise on transport cages or peel plastic protection bags from shirts, blouses and dresses. Some are assigned to fold towels, – more... organize shirts and pants according to color and size.

Receiving manager is easy going and motivates the crew to get the work done.

Co-workers is a mix of people who are usually students attending the local community colleges looking to make some extra pay. Everyone dresses causal - jeans and black shirt.

The hardest part of the job would be the cleanup of the warehouse after all the merchandise has been placed on the sales floor. The enjoyable part, broken in two are the moments when all the merchandise leaves the warehouse for the sales floor and completing the clean-up of the warehouse before going home for the night. – less

Remember it's not a career
ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 12, 2014
Pros: good way to build connections with people and overcome the fear of speaking to new people.
Cons: management, work load, long hours, rude customers.
When I first started working for Macy's it was a great experience. Great managers, great work environment, when they needed me I would always report in.

But once the CEO of the store started to send the old managers to different stores and some managers quit, this particular location hasn't been the same.

Some managers shouldn't be managers at all, – more... the customers are starting to get ruder by the minute, and they cut the hours for full-time so the pay is no longer worth the work. – less
