I worked at Macy's

Pros

Pay was better than some office jobs I've worked in. Manager was very appreciative of all my hard work. Overtime was offered during the holidays. Very active job.

Cons

Its retail. No downtime. Always on the go. If in a mall you feel like you are stuck in a dungeon. Retail in general is nuts between the hours, no benefits, and no growth opportunities. Discount stinks and you have to have a macys CC or buy a prepaid card to get discount.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the visual shop more organized.

    Pros

    You're able to manage your schedule online which allows you to pick up or give away hours very easily.

    Cons

    Macy's seems to be more concerned with sales than customer care which makes it hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get corporate to allow for more hours so that Macy's doesnt look like ROSS.

    Pros

    Employee Discounts, Fair pay, willing to give a lot of hours, if you are willing to work hard they are willing to help you be better!

    Cons

    Unethical Business in that they pressure employees to skip their breaks "No, you can't go on break even though you have been here 8 hours.", stay after their scheduled shift (And I don't mean "we really need help." or "Would you be willing?" it's "You may not leave." or "We have been here X amount of hours you can pull a few more.", and just generally treat their employees like crap.
