    Pros

    Experience with a diverse group of customers.

    Cons

    No sense of communication other than always asking how many new macys charge cards have I opened. My manager never told me important information. My biggest issue with Macy's is that all of the leadership has been taken out of the store. Everyone's schedules are made by people in Atlanta that have no idea what our actual traffic flow is. A monkey could make better schedules. It seems I am constantly overstaffed in my department when I need not be and nobody can meet sales goals and when I can use the staff I am overwhelmed and customers complain. Assistant store managers have too much stress and not enough support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on making employees feel important rather than only rattling off sales plan numbers and telling us what we're doing wrong. No positive reinforcement. People live in fear of corporate visits.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    I was able to see when things were going to go on sale and was able to put clothes on hold.

    Cons

    It was a huge downer. They work you like dogs and pay you minimum wage. You will always be understaffed and have to work multiple jobs (fitting room, cashier, clean up).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE MORE PEOPLE. Create a more enjoyable work environment. Pay your employees for the work they do. Listen to employees.
