Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

I worked at Macy's part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Very likable co-workers. Managers were relatively easy going and tried to make getting loyalties/credit accounts more than just badgering the customer. The many sales that were going on made it easy for me to shop for what I wanted, haha.

Cons

You start out at minimum wage no matter what. This wasn't really a problem for me since I still live at home but others who live on their own and have school to pay for probably have to find another job. Customers can be extremely rude when they don't get what they want but hey, that's retail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees will be more likely to stay with the company if the compensation was higher than minimum wage for new recruits, thus wasting less money on training.

    Pros

    a lot of the managers are nice, just do what you have to at work and you will have no problems

    Cons

    Its retail so customers are always going to be rude at times, retail jobs are extremely boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have a better hiring process, Stop having people wait 10 weeks before they know if they are hired or not. People don't want to wait 3 weeks for interview process and then another 2 weeks just to know if they have the job. Also I was told i would have a second interview but never got a call back, i called back every other day and still got the same run around.
