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.
Cosmetics Counter Manager (Former Employee) – Downey, CA – November 13, 2018
Early on I really enjoyed my job until employees and other managers around me gave me the rundown. They told me sales managers never appreciate their efforts and were treated unfairly. Soon I witnessed myself that sales managers work against you not for you. They are very unprofessional and have their favorites. You are constantly pushed to open up credits and looked down upon when not opening enough. They are very strict when it comes to taking days off. I would schedule unavailable days and they would still schedule me and make it nearly impossible for someone to cover the shift. They claimed they couldn't make any exceptions when it came to scheduling, but would do it for their favorites. Didn't feel comfortable bringing up issues to my own manager. I enjoyed what I did there but management there and other negative employees would have me drive home in tears. Not to mention pay was not enough for everything that was demanded of this position.
Retail Sales/Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – November 13, 2018
I was disappointed when this store closed after such a short time there. Being groomed for management training after just a couple of months was flattering, but it brought out the resentment of a few long term but "unsuitable for management" coworkers. However, management was aware and handling the conflict proactively. The clientele in the downtown store was high-end, discriminating, loyal and very pleasant to serve. When corporate closed this very successful historic location in need of major renovation, I chose to return to college at Boise State, rather than relocate to the new under performing outlying store in Nampa, Idaho where the ranks of management were full.
Receiving Associate (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – November 13, 2018
While Macy’s is a great store for customers, it’s not so kind to it employees. If your looking for a job that is fufilling but also pays well, I’d say look elsewhere. Macy’s is a great starter job for those who want to lack onto the ways of a competitive job
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Downey, CA – November 12, 2018
A typical day at work would be a morning rally talking about our daily goals in accordance with our quarterly goal. The management team aren't breathing down our necks which is nice. I will say that the management team relocates a lot and the draw commission goal is very UNREALISTIC. They have so many deductions and commission percentage is too low. There is 0 incentive to be apart of the commission team because of how little reward for such highly stressful job.

Men's Suits Associate (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – November 11, 2018
Most days coverage is low requiring open communication with colleagues to coordinate adequate coverage for meals and breaks. Management has been going through a lot of shifts resulting in senior associates providing training to new management.
