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

    Great management team
    Flexible hours
    paid holidays for FT after 6 months
    Benefits after 6 months
    Management gives some employees empowerment, meaning they can make some decisions without calling a manager

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to achieve sales goals
    Long hours during Christmas, some stores open 7am-12am
    If its a large store, getting ahold of a manager for customer service issues may be difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If an employee wants to be promoted, do all you can to try to get them in the position that they deserve, given that they are qualified.
