It's a very productive and flexible environment.
sales associate (Current Employee), New York, NYJune 23, 2014
Pros: flexible with the schedules
Cons: score cards keep changing
At my department, Michael Kors handbags, which I'm currently in is usually busy everyday. It's a fast paced environment and is rare that there are few customers shopping around. I learned how to work with a few customers at a time, how to make a customer not only want to buy our bags but take a second item with them such as a wallet or a cross body, – more... and also how to be very patient. My co-workers are great I never had a problem with any of the as well as my managers. The hardest part of my job would have to be the sale days you have to be extremely prepared to deal with multiple people and the people who are very impatient. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I have gotten extremely comfortable with the kind of fast paced environment I work in and the bags that we sell. – less

Great place to work
Sales associate (Former Employee), Mall of americaJune 22, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: sales/pay
Macys is a pretty good place to work, as an employee I like the management style. If you work in the sales department that may be a bit of a challenge but besides that its a good environment and may be a place with good job security. probably not very much room for career advancement. Also the pay is not to high but can earn commission in sales.
