I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great Locations, Great Atmosphere, Great Clothing and Employee Discounts, Paid Weekly

Cons

Co-workers can be a little too bossy and competitive, Not too many advancement opportunities, Hours seem to fluctuate at any moment, Anyone can be fired or let go for anything at any moment, no benefits if not full time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more hands-on and helping. Also hire people that are more better prepared for what they're doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - HR should understand the employees they are managing and act as career counselors
    - There should be a more extensive development program

    Pros

    Discount, Learn a lot new stuff, getting to know people, flexible hours

    Cons

    Having to sell macys credit cards! Some people are rude and have been there for 10+ years and don't like to help new people, dealing with and learning about all their sales and restrictions on macys cards and regular coupons is HARD!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training!!! Everything is online, How is anybody to really be prepared without proper training.
