I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

Pros

I cant think of anything aside from the discounts, the sales, the customers and fellow associates. You also have the option to select your work availability .

Cons

everything,mamagememt,lack of associates. To grow your customers you have to grow your team to accommodate. and really care about the customer,not just because you are in competition with other stores. It has to be about more than the $$ and the Macys Star REWARDS AKA Macys credit card.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire Hire Hire ..one person cant assist 5-10 customers at one time ,nor can you open the doors on A super Saturday with one person and expect to receive a good survey. Theres no magic in that philosophy accept to save money and put more in corporate pockets.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The discount is ok providing you have a Macy's credit card or a prepaid account. MySchedule is pretty good. Great people to work with. The experience.

    Cons

    The company has no values. The charities it donates to are all done in the name of "spin". Don't ever download the Macy's app or use the free wifi if you're an employee as the company will "monitor' what is on your phone. A very suffocating environment in which to work. Loss prevention insists most theft happens with employees which one doubts as the merchandise is generally garbage to begin with. There is no work life balance as the company struggles to compete with other stores by offering lame OneDay sales with peculiar hours. Virtually no training except that which one receives on the floor from co-workers. Outrageous sales goals. Poor quality merchandise. Building falling apart. If employed here you had better get used to lying as you will have to in order to open those ever important credit card accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating an environment of paranoia, deceit and arrogance. Employees begin with exuberance but learn rather quickly what a horrible place Macys is. Stop spying on your employees(hacking their phones). This company has a great deal of bad karma coming its way.

    Pros

    Friendly environment. They feed you on holidays when you are working, prizes for star rewards. Exciting on certain days. Great place to meet people!

    Cons

    Horrible managers. Not being able to take lunch when I want. Low pay for a lot of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relate to your employees more
