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.

It's a straight forward job in retail, but the managers were not great at training. This place's LP was terrible, she had a bias against me for some reason and tried to get me fired, but other than that Macy's was good

Very family oriented company. I enjoyed working there as a sales associate. Met many different people, Worked many departments- bridal, fine china, small appliances, bedding. women's clothing. Fulton St. Macy's had area where you could go for breakfast, lunch, dinner.Most employees brought their own, we were supplied with micro-wave, soda, chip machines. I give Macy's two thumbs up!!!!

Working at Macys is your typical retail with bad pay. Forced to meet macy card applications and individual sales goal. Has score card to evaluate employees in which sales and macy card applications are weighted heavily. if don't have a good score card wont get a raise and may get fired because of it.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – September 21, 2018
A normal work day starts off around 10:30 am -3:30PM Very fast pace I've learned how to build as a loader got a lot of building tips on how to load a trailer Management is very nice and understanding Hardest part to the job is unjamming a line that's packed Most enjoyable part of the job was thr team ever one was on the same page and never made the job hard
Working at Macy's can bring variety in day to day challenges. They offer some training based on the department in which you work and most associates are willing to give advice about their areas as they become passionate about them and their return customers. Friendly faces and excited shoppers were the best part of the job.
the company is ok to work for, it is the management that can make things difficult. If you have you like an challange and dont mine being over worked and under paid this may be the perfect job for you.
My manager was very nice and always helped us in every question. My coworkers were polite and nice with the customers. The hardest part was taking care of the clothes left inside the dressing rooms. The most enjoyable part was to be working in an awesome store full of beautiful things around us. I left because I couldn´t achieve the sales goal every week and my paycheck wasn´t enough for my basic needs. I love Macy´s even though.

A typical day at Macy greeted every morning by co-workers. I always started my day by fixing my work station making sure I had all the necessary tools needed to complete my task and reach my goals for the day. I then proceed to fix my are of work by fixing displays and merchandise. Until the customers arrive. I will help any customer who ask for help or looks like they need help with finding an item then we would proceed to check out. Management will come and check in with me regularly during my shift to update me on my progress for the day and any promotions to offer customers. The hardest part of the job is to not being able to sit down when your legs get tired. I enjoy making the customer happy the most.
The employee discount
short breaks and not enough recognition for hard workers
Macy's is a fast paced work environment on a busy sales day, but I found busy days to be most enjoyable . On slow days there is massive pressure to meet sales goals, which is the hardest part of the job. The workplace culture is diverse and inclusive. Management was always helpful and provided guidance.
Puller/Packer (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – September 21, 2018
The company was not organized and did not have a game plan. The supervisors were not helpful. I wish they can come up with a plan to improved our work if they want everything done by the end of the day.
