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.

How long will it take to get you up to superstar speed? Spend time on the floor or mirroring a top performer. Ask them point blank, “How long until I can do what you do?” Then double it, just to give yourself breathing room. Is that a comfortable amount of time? Pros: You get to learn a new product, a new system. It’s a basket full of new. I personally thrive on this; I’m a quick learner. I’ve worked with several reps who take a long time to ramp up, and this can cause stress to a new work environment. Some people need change; new ideas energize them. When I study the numbers of reps who give up, I see a trend of not seeing the real progress that is being achieved in the daily grind. Did you give up too early to even make a good decision?
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Short Hills, NJ – January 17, 2019
job wasn't so bad just wish management was better. don't pay much. I believe Macys needs to raise the pay especially for having employees doing so much. have to monitor fitting room, make sales, open credit cards and place orders.
Quality Control Supervisor (Former Employee) – Martinsburg, WV – January 17, 2019
A typical day involves hitting the ground running. One must know how to deal with people with addictions in the work place.Slowness and lack of support are common among management along with gross preferential treatment of employees based upon race, gender, or creed. However, the most enjoyable part of the job are the people you directly work with: Diversity is encouraged in the workplace.
Very inconsistent work hours, poor communication from HR
Retail Floor Associate (Former Employee) – Bloomingdale, IL – January 17, 2019
I was hired as temporary part time employee, 10-15 hours per week. Late November I was scheduled for ten 4 hour days in a row, including the day before Thanksgiving, Thankgiving and the 2 days following. No prior communication was given. When I told HR rep that I could not work those hours but could continue to work the part time hours I was hired for, there was no further communication from my manager or HR rep. They just stopped scheduling hours for me (which I found out through their website). No further written, oral explanation was provided.
No benefits, poor HR communication, poor Management comunication
Lucky Brand Specialist (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – January 17, 2019
This is a great company to work for. Management was amazing. A typical day at work was very fast paced. My favorite part of the job was being busy. I was able to become the Lucky Brand specialist and absolutely loved working specifically with this company's clothing brand. The customers were also awesome.
Working at Macy's is a great experience for someone learn more on shipping and receiving.
RECEIVING DOCK ASSOCIATE/MANAGER ASSISTANT P/T (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – January 17, 2019
While being employed at Macy's it's a great experience to enhance my knowledge and expand my experience as a Dock Associate/Manager Assistant. While working as an Associate at Macy's I truly love the team that I'm working with. Yes there are high turn overs but for those that have hung in there and we have built a great relationship with one another, I wouldn't change at all.
Ability to expand my Shipping and Receiving experience
Any job is difficult but this is the worst. The store and management bother you and make sure you open more credit cards each day and they do not care about anyone or anything as long as the store makes its sales goal for the day. Some days are not too bad but there are always those certain people who bother you to no end and it makes the sales associated just want to walk out and quit. When half your staff is ready to walk and quit then something must be wrong. The views the customers see are nothing that really goes on to when the store is closed or before they open.
