    I worked at Macy's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Gratis from working with Dior counter and double discount days. Meeting new people and learning new things from Dior. My Dior experience was wonderful but Macy's is a joke.

    Cons

    Sales manager had no clue about anything except how to bullie us. She made a counter manager cry everyday last summer during our slow months here in florida. I was a counter manager but had no one to manage. I ran the counter by myself and was told in my interview I would have a part timer which after I started I was told I would have to sell 3k a week to get a part timer. They are always changing your goals once you meet or beat them and even if you sell 200% or more to your goal and are an "extreme seller" like I was you will still be harassed and talked down to unless you open 2 or more credits a week. Most women in that dept are sneaky and sharky. Dishonest and two faced people are what you are surrounded by all day. Let's take a minute to talk about the prepaid Macy's account they offer. They did not account for my double discount in December properly and are now saying I owe almost 300! How does that happen with a prepaid account?!!! They are scam artist. Macy's money another scam.... open a credit or win a magic story prize and get $3 off a $6 purchase... so now you gotta spend that money in their store... but wait what's that? Oh just the Macy's money showing up as a form of income on my check that I am now being taxed on... after paying sales tax on the purchase I made with it. Top it all off with the fact that the charities they work with are all the top worst ones in the country as far as what % of the donation actually goes to the said cause. Macy's takes at least 60% if most of the money collected from these promotions. What a joke. Sell your soul to the devil and maybe you will succeed in this company.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discount( if you get hours to buy things)

    Cons

    Lowest wages in retail, absolutely no hours (about 10 to 14 hours a week at minim wage)
    Favoritism, blatant discrimination, upper management will always side with the discriminate, and cover for the discriminate supervisor or lead. Open hiring interview I told the hiring manager that I needed at least 25 hours a weekend was told I would get it, past two months averaged 14 hours a week, so they also lie!
    Make employees work Thanksgiving day-since I am part time I do not get time and a half for any holidays worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You want excellent fast hard working people then pay them a descent wages!!!!
    Ever heard of HAPPY WORKER IS A GOOD WORKER.
    Stop promoting only females for advancement!!!!!!!!!!
    This place has never heard of experience, dedication or work ethic!!!
    Promoted female to a lead position and she has been late at least once a week and has called out at least 4 times since I've worked there. I have never called out and have never been late, with over 6 years of managerial experience, but I am a male associate so I get left behind
