Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The work hours are very flexible and managers are understanding with students. Customers are great and there's a lot of passion behind executives and employees for the Macy's culture.

Cons

The sales aren't as high as in major cities. Hence, commission isn't too great. There are times when the sales floor gets really boring without traffic.

Advice to Management

Try motivating employees through a positive approach, not just meeting quotas.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    It was fun to hang up the decorations and get everything ready for the holidays! My favorite was making the decorated boxes that are seen throughout the store.

    Cons

    Not a con for me, but just be aware that there's lots of physical activity involved in hanging decorations. Be ready to do a lot of walking and using tools. There will be dust on the job too, especially in back where everything is stored. If you have allergies, just take an Allegra before you go to work and that should help.


  2. It's a shame it was just seasonal.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Macy's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Clear, concise training. The supervisors at my location were very sweet and understanding about issues with hours or personal problems.

    Cons

    The very early work schedule kept me quite sleepy, so I felt I couldn't give my best.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees and thanks for a great seasonal employment!
