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.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Co-workers are at least tolerable
    Unlimited freedom to roam and handle your tasks at your own pace
    Management aren't ALL over your work ethics

    Cons

    Other employees can get VERY competitive over a small sale (If you work as Draw vs Commission)
    Management doesn't give much direction, everything you are taught in macys training should be enough when it isn't
    Customers who give you a hard time over limited merchandise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a more hands-on approach to employee satisfaction and approach to job policies and methods.
    Other than that we're pretty solid!
