Pros

When its time for you to clock out, managers make sure you clock out on time. No matter what.
Opportunities to meet customers from all over the world.

Cons

Schedule constantly changes without notice
The managers are the plastic girls from high school; its impossible to communicate with them unless you're part of the plastic crew
EXTREME emphasis on credit apps and sales goals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Every manager needs to be fired, and people with human hearts need to take their places.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's retail and if you love makeup or fashion and work in one of those areas then it's fun.

    Cons

    Management pushes opening store credits on you all day everyday. Your reviews and recognition are all about how many credit cards you opened. There are people who stand in the Jr's dept and ring up clothes all day who get recognized for opening credits because they are able to convince the customer that they're saving so much money because they are and they are the star employees while others in cosmetics struggle it's a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees become a full package employee who does well in everything not just store credits.
