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

    Pros

    When working the holiday season you have a lot of hours. Other employees were phenomenal !! Pay was okay for a single person without kids or bills ..

    Cons

    The pay is not okay if you have kids and bills, the managers were lazy, couldnt advance because seasonal help is just that, they dont hire on ANY seasonal helpers for permanent positions ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful on those you let run your stores, they are there only for good reputation on their name .. START HIRING SEASONAL WORKERS ON FOR PERMANENT POSITIONS ..

    Great place for high school/college students, but base pay isn't enough to live off.

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

    Pros

    Great culture. Fun place to work. Great sales, so it's easy to create a clientele.

    Cons

    No incentives to work hard. You start off making minimum wage (plu comission), and there's no opportunity for a rasie in that base pay. Most companies will give you a percentage per quarter/year if your sales numbers are up to par or exceeding goals. Macy's doesn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer incentives like percentage raises per quarter, etc. to employers if you actually want to see them do a great job with their tasks. Also, maybe not have so many sales. Sales bring in customers, but it gives them the idea that your store and the merchandise is cheap if everything is constantly on sale. Maybe you could pay employees more if they're weren't so many sales.
