    I have been working at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I actually enjoy working at Macy's. Although, it is what you make of it. At my location, there are a lot of older people who have been there for umpteen years and kind of look down on younger people as if they are not worthy to work with them, as I have seen this first hand.

    Cons

    Being one of 100s of employees, it's easy to get lost in the mix. I've been with the company for almost 8 months and there are still a couple of departments managers who can't tell me my name without looking at my name tag. So it can be very impersonal sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees whether they're in your department or not. It really devalues you as a manager if you can't even greet me using my name.


  2. It's a fun job, most of the time.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In enjoy the freedom I have, meeting lots of different types of people, employee discounts, and community involvement Macys has. They do lots of charity event and fundraisers, for customers and employees. Also there are benefits such as 401k and insurance.

    Cons

    You must sell a certain amount of credit cards weekly, during the holidays they add more stuff for you to sell (thanks for sharing), there are constant changes, and they could definetly pay employees more, apparently you max out on salary pretty easily.
