I worked at Macy's part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Macy's offers decent pay for a part-time retail job, clothing discounts and ability to transfer stores if need be. I've known people to move up to corporate after working part-time for a store for a few years.

Cons

Turnover is quite common, there are a lot of season employees and hours can often be hard to come by if you are looking to work closer to full time you often have to negotiate with your co-workers. If you manage to get on a good team where everyone does equally good work, you are lucky, but if you have a bad egg who just sits at the register to ring up sales and meet goals, don't expect management to help much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your staff as if they aren't disposable and you might get better sales and results.

    Offering a raise to a hard working employee would be nice.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Management only celebrates when an associate opens up a Macy's account with a customer. Other personal goals do not matter. New schedule system (Myscheduleplus) does not benefit full time employees. Hours have been cut to 35 at best per week when promised 40. Raises are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless they get rid of the current scheduling system (Myscheduleplus) , many people that have been there for years will continue to find better places to work.
