Pros

The store is a great place t shop and they have a nice employee discount and their salaries are very competitive.

Cons

Training and development is almost nonexistent. Many employees have been there forever and not very welcoming to new hires. Senior management is clueless.

Advice to Management

Stop playing favorites and treat all employees fairly.

    Pros

    The best part is the people you will meet. There are some customers and colleagues who are nice and will even make you laugh. You have a chance to make some friends while working here. There is also the employee discount. The orientation was enjoyable because you get paid to do nothing. Occasionally, there is food for employees in the lunch room.

    Cons

    It takes a toll on your body to lift so many heavy items. The pay is very low even after earning a Bachelors degree. The worst part is being on your feet for such a long time. Black Friday and inventory days are things I would never wish on my worst adversary. There are some colleagues and some customers who are disrespectful. There is no reward for meeting/exceeding sales goals. Working outside is another problem especially in inclement weather. Parking can be a hassle. Management tells you to sell Macy's cards, but it is pointless. Not all departments have base plus commission. No benefits like dental, 401K, vision, prescription drug card. The morning meetings (rallies) are not very inspiring. Employees are terminated for no reason. There was one incident where a manager vouched for an employee because that employee stole merchandise, so that manager was fired. Some managers are unqualified. The employee discount and coupons don't always work. Training was dreadful. If you are new, then you might be all by yourself on the sales floor (which is intimidating).

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some real incentive for getting customers to signup for Macy's cards. At best, you receive a trivial raise. There also needs to be incentive to meeting/exceeding sales goals. When you are new, you should be paired up with someone instead of being on the sales floor solo.
