Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 20, 2018
Macy’s is another corporate retail store, where you work during the Thanksgiving holidays and you need to be work early to perform tasks by the end of the day. The pay is decent depending on the amount of shifts during the week. When the holidays sales are over, shifts are nowhere to be found in about two weeks to a month.
The benefits are sub par, very high deductible. Some organizational changes removed what made the job good, and worth the lack of benefits. There is a vast inconsistency in rules, and the enforcement of such. The computer systems are the worst programs I have used in my life.
flexible work schedule for some departments; lax dress code

understaffed i was only person working my department when there should have been 5 and they still didn't keep me after the season even though they were understaffed didnt make much sense to me I doubled or tripled my sales goal every time and helped insane amounts of customers without a problem but its ok i wouldnt want to work there its a dump now

I enjoyed working there and I learned a lot working in different departments. The hardest part of the job was working 12 hrs. shift .the fun part was meeting people of different background and culture.

Macy's is a work friendly environment. As a sales Associate you are able to work independently and always get help when the need arise. I am always happy dealing with customers and helping them leave the store happy and fulfilled.
RECEIVING TEAM MANAGER (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 15, 2018
Very fast paced, limited information to be able to complete job, usually are limited by upper management. If willing to work and ask for it pay can be good, overtime only during Christmas, good benefits and can earn vacation days the longer you work there.
Overtime, benefits, vacation days.
Management, lack of information, old logistical systems and buildings.

Don't expect to pay a bill with Macy's but you can eat , the hours are varied, so you can work around your schedule if you have better things to do. You will enjoy and hate your job in the same hour, just depends on you.
Varied hours, decent people, ok pay
Not always recognizing great workers, lack of promotions for long term workers

I only wish there was more of push to drive employees for not only company goals but for professional and personal growth . i enjoyed morning meetings and management interaction.
Beauty advisor / Sale Associate (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – July 13, 2018
Skin time, the hardest part of the job: How to invite a costumer to sit and try our product. Fortunately, Clarins is a french cosmetic, but the everyone' s pocket is a manner. I was famous because of my hands, everyone said that my hands felt like cotton. It was a great tool to introduce the products and close sales. Another hard task was to open Credit Card, sometimes I was lucky, but most of the time people told about their legal status or bankrupt, I obstacle. The Macys Credit Card was a stressful thing for every associate in the department store.
it was fun , we had lots of work to do ,we also had fun days
