I worked at Macy's during my college years as one of my first official jobs. I appreciated the diversity and inclusive environment and management was good however the pay was definitely underwhelming especially for the amount of work one did as a sales associate.
Too many people with the hook ups working their, unfair work environment
Shoe Expeditor Lead (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – August 24, 2018
Over worked and over used. Do not become reliable, not at Macy's. You will get used beyond belief. I learned that it is a cut throat environment. Management doesn't care how the job gets done as long as it some how gets there. Not relaxed, constantly tending after others. The hardest part about dealing with the lead expeditor role is that you aren't a lead, you are just another hand, of course management will tell you different. Not being there to do the job.
If you work more than 7.5 hrs you get two 15 min paid breaks, 20% Emp Discount
Complainers are everywhere in this place. Unfair work areas. The lazy progress.
Could have been better if the managers hadn't switched around. In the end you must remember you are just an asset so if you do not help the company they will cut you loose. If you have any questions or doubts get the manager or supervisor to do something, especially with discounts and harder to handle customers. Don't lost your job over those things.

By doing different tasks in the sales area, you can grow in knowledge that will serve you for your future work, you also learn a lot from working with clients, and to have a better relationship with people. It is a very pleasant environment for cleanliness and pleasant to interact with people from all over the world.
macys is a very diverse companythat is regularly hiring from the outside as well as offering some career advancement opportunities to some employeees within.need to always open credits and sell daily sales goal
Bad company to work for they don't know what they're doing they don't know what the customer really wants when the people on the sales floor know what the customers want because they're talking to them everyday
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 could be a great place to work. However, there policy make it hard to make decent money. They are very pushy when it comes to getting customers to apply for credit. The emplyee discount isnt alwasy the best. And the way they pay those on comission is borderline robbery.
A typical day at work is about engaging with customers, communication is a must on a daily basis. Helping customers as much as you can, because nevertheless your commission depends on the amount of products sold as well. I learned leadership skills, organization, time management, social skills, helped with my anxiety and you learn from people. The management is very understanding as it gives you a flexible schedule, although it may be difficult to contact them sometimes as they are all over the place, so you have to manage yourself. The workplace culture is cool as a lot of customers are the drive of the place, you get to have contact with a coworkers and is a nice adventure. The hardest part of the job could be to get out of your shell at first at engaging with customers but that is overcomed with time. The most enjoyable part of the job is taming the satisfaction of a sell and being able to sign a client up in your list of accountability. Also payday!!
Commission, flexible schedule, good coworkers, social skills boost.
bad customers from time to time, low tolerance, though work.
