    Pros

    Pay is decent for what the job is, basically if you aren't a total idiot and work hard, you can make some decent money.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits. I had a child after working over a year here. I had not taken a vacation since my hire date, and I thought I'd have accrued at least a week of vacation. I was told I had three days total vacation, and of those three days, I was allowed to take 1 1/2 of those during my leave for pay. Absolutely worst vacation policy I have ever seen Managers - there are too many managers per store, and when you need one, you can never find one. They have a phone that you may or may not be able to get a hold of. Completely unorganized Long hours - typical of retail, but Macy's in general feels terrible compared to other retailers I've worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Completely restructure the management system, with less quantity and more quality managers. Use the money you save on managers to provide a decent benefits package, with more recognition to employees

    Pros

    There was a great discount and I liked my coworkers. I was proud of the Macy's name how it was growing while I was there.

    Cons

    They pay less than most companies and there wasn't much interaction among the departments. Most software was developed for Macy's so it is not real world experience you can take with you.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should use mainstream software and compensate employees better as motivation to reach their full potenial. so many people there are complacent because they don't have enough motivation to grow.
