    I have been working at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Macy's has a good reputation in the community and you see a lot of repeat clientele. The discount and wages are competitive with other retailers. the scheduling system is fair and it's fairly easy to switch your schedule around if something comes up. They do a lot of advertising to bring people into the store.

    Cons

    Management skill level varies greatly. They do not do coupons or discounts in cosmetics which is hurting the business in this department. There is sometimes more importance given to opening charge accounts then to meeting sales goals. The holiday store hours are getting longer, staying open 24hrs for the last three days before Christmas. The all black dress code also gets old after awhile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to listening to your employee concerns, we cant make magic if we don't feel like our ideas are being heard. Opening loyalty should not be so high pressure,customer service should be the most important goal. Staff more people on non sale days so that there is time for product knowledge training and recovery.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    Flex-team hours allow more freedom
    The 20% discount!
    Meet interesting people

    Cons

    Management is often less educated than you are but speak down to you
    They will make you work holidays, non optional, reason why I quit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The competition between full time, part time, and flex employees needs to be corrected. It gets cut throat real fast when the full times need to make their goals
