Pros

A great atmosphere in the store with fellow co-workers and management. Very easy to build a rapport at work. Also, the company pushes to promote within. So once you're in, you have a great chance to advance.

Cons

Gossip can be tough to avoid from time to time, and the hours are challenging. You rarely get a weekend off starting out. And management did not do a good job communicating to our department about the happenings within the entire store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication is key! Don't just drive loyalties, sales, and service scores, but be sure to communicate why the company drives those. Communicate clearly how credits are beneficial and specific practices to prepare your associates to provide optimal customer service. Also, incorporate ALL departments of Macy's in activities. I worked as a shift lead at a Starbucks inside Macy's and management in our store has done a poor job incorporating our Starbucks team with the store festivities and has not done well in communicating the happenings within the store. If you want to retain talent, make sure they all feel like they are a part of the team.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Macy's offers an extremely flexible online scheduling system that allows you to pick up extra shifts in addition to ones already assigned to you for that week, advertise your shifts for any other associate in the store to pick up, swap shifts with other associates, or even ask someone to cover your shift. If you're looking for a place to work while you go to school or have another part time or even full time job Macy's is a great fit.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work A LOT during the holidays - this is retail after all
