What is it like working as a Sales Associate at Macy's, Inc.?
Sales Associate in McHenry:
Pros: The variety of things to do. The amount of people you meet everyday. The variety of personalities.
Cons: Unhappy people in management.
Sales Associate in Lake Grove:
Pros: There are many wonderful co-workers and managers.
Cons: There is very little incentive to perform better. Salary is never discussed as an incentive. The few perks are rather meager and work primarily for the company's benefits. I don't look for small prices or contests to help me feel good about my job. I'm sure it's not that they don't know that the most significant motivator is an appropriate raise in pay. They just choose to ignore the greatest needs of their employees. Some work very close by and for them the job is something that brings in spending money. For others a good part of their salary goes to gas and car maintenance. Still others like myself need the money, live too far to make it in with ease. I would be a lot happier if they would stop trying to tell me that every new policy and event will help Macys make more money. Do they really believe that the employees care that Macy's is making huge profits while they are barely making it on their salaries and giving it (the job) their best.
