Macy's a wonderful place to work

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI like the flexible schedules. I am able to select at least one day a week when I know I will always be off. The rest of the days the hours work great for my volunteer work and other fun activities. The Management staff are genuinely interested in helping you grow to your full potential and willing to provide feedback where needed.

ConsThe weekend hours, unfortunately, that is when the majority of people do their shopping, so it is expected you will work on those days.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, they understand the sales associated are the ones in front of the customer. Many things are done to ensure the associates have what they need to be effective in front of the customer.

Macy's is a great place to work

District Planner (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe pay is good and the people are great. If you like a fast paced environment, then this is the place for you. The company really cares about its people, and making sure they are happy and have a work life balance.

ConsTraining was not great, and you will sometimes work a lot of hours. As a district planner, it is sometimes hard to get what you need from the central buying team. This can be frustrating.
