Productive, yet it was hard to learn from management
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Corte Madera, CAJune 30, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks, no medical
A typical day of work consisted of opening & closing duties, customer service, keeping work stations clean, loss prevention logging, ringing

I learned a lot working at Macy's. It was my first retail job at a major company. I mostly succeeded with customers and helping them with their needs and striking up conversations and selling them something they – more... didn't see owning.

Management was okay. Multiple managers ran departments so they couldn't keep up with every department.

My co-workers were great, I met two of my closest friends there which I now consider family. We have all moved on and progressed in our life with better jobs.

Hardest part of my job was inventory. The hours were terrible and management was strict about breaks during that time.

Most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people – less

BEAUTY ADVISOR (Former Employee), Honolulu, HIJune 28, 2014
Pros: commission, gratification

Sales
Customer service and product sales (Former Employee), East Brunswick, NJJune 28, 2014
Pros: learning to multi-task
Cons: short breaks
This was one of my favorite jobs because of the constant interaction with people. I was very good at sales because I am a very good communicator and am very open to talk to anyone. An average day included secuirty of the products and sales of the products. The management and the co-workers were all genuine people who wanted to work for the money. The – more... hardest part was standing for 8 hours and day, but the best part was the gained experience in communication skills. – less

hated the early morning shifts
the hardest part of the job is trying to focus so early in the mornings
the most enjoyable part is you get out early and have the whole rest of the day for your self

Specialist Sales Associate (Current Employee), Boston, MAJune 27, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: healthcare
Macys is not a bad place to work if you like working with people. Most employee are Friendly to work with but know as a person you must take on a lot of leadership action because you can feel as if your the only one working/ organzing by yourself( as far as the women shoes department). a typical day is cleaning, selling, opening credits, and understading – more... sales. I've learning how to be consistant,productive, exploring new ways to sell, and mostly how to be a leader. the hardest part of the job is pre-selling goals at the same time making sales goal of the day but it is reachable. The most enjoyable part is working with customers, making sales, co- workers and meetings about training and updates on the store. – less

Merchandising Team Lead (Current Employee), Elmhurst, New YorkJune 26, 2014
I started at Macy's with little experience. I was trained directly from my manager and co-workers. I learned the importance of floor maintenance, fixture placement, the position of goods etc. I also learned the many brands Macy's carries and how each brand has a standard that must be maintained and properly placed on the sales floor. After my promotion, – more... I developed three associates into taking on lead positions. I was able to train sales associates during my temporary supervisor position.
