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

    Pros

    Paid weekly
    Got hired on very quickly

    Cons

    Never any hours
    Non-management (never knew who was in charge and expected senior employees to basically train you).
    The training was a joke
    Minimum wage with no real raises that I was aware of
    Took almost a month before I actually got into training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized and have actual training for the employees.

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

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of one good thing about this company

    Cons

    If there was a true Evil Empire then Macy's is it! Working at this place the one of the most soul sucking experiences I've ever had.

    To top it all off you get paid in peanuts, so even though you're drained by the constant drilling by management to "make a connection" with the customers, up-sell every single item and ask them to open Macy's account if they can't afford to "buy more" at the time, at the end of the week you barely have enough to take the Metro to do it all again.

    I only lasted 5 months there. The amount of stress that management puts you through could be likened to a high powered wall street broker but for minimum wage.

    When once I told my manager that I showed a customer a least expensive option because she was trying to save money, he looked at me with a straight face and told me "by offering someone a least expensive option you are insulting them". Wha???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Stop with the doublespeak and attempted brainwashing of your employees
    *Stop with the fake contest prizes for "selling more" that never appear
    *Just stop

    Disapproves of CEO
