There was no typical day at work, everyday were different. We basically learned everything by ourselves everyday, Macy's only give you the basic things about sales and cash register. Management wasn't really good, a lot of the managers playing favor, and most of them doesn't have a special training for to be a manager. Work place culture in the men's departments was better than the women's departments, just like the managers, most people who work at Macy's playing favor base on their ethnicity, so there was gap by each group such as the philippine's only help or during lunch time or break get together on their own people same with the Persian group, or the Mexican group, and they also talked with their own language at work, so make you feel didn't belongs there. The hardest part of the job was dealing with rude customers even when they were wrong, and you tried your best to accommodate them, in the end the low salary, no benefit, bad management, unwelcome group of ethnicity, and bad treatment from customers were not worth of a job.
The most enjoyable part of the job, you can learned a lot to read people, how to handle them or deal with them, and met interesting people that become good friends.
Meet interesting people, made new friends.
No healthcare, low salary, bad management, unwelcome from certain groups of ethnicity.
