Nice workplace, but hard to get hours
Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 11, 2015
Being that I am a full-time student, it is hard to receive hours as a seasonal employee. A typical day at work is greeting and approaching customers, watchful of any suspicious activity, a continuous explanation of store policy, especially regarding the use of coupons, and assuring that the customers had an enjoyable experience. The co-workers were very friendly and willing to help me on my first few "new" days. Macy's is my first retail job and the co-workers were understanding of that and helped me learn the system and policies for retail associates as mandated by the company. The hardest part of the job was working the weekends when I sometimes would get stuck behind my register because I was constantly receiving customers who were ready to check out. It becomes a bit demanding, especially when no one is there to cover your shift so that you can handle your other assigned duties such as refolding or hanging clothes, cleaning dressing rooms, or take your mandatory breaks. Overall, I enjoyed the experience.
