Pros

20% discount for employees if you can find clothes that fit the dress code in the store. Can generally get your schedules 2 weeks out.

Cons

No set rotation of schedules and hours get cut based on sales quite often. Housekeeping is terrible and our clean stores have become nasty (restrooms, break rooms, fitting rooms). Very little management support as the teams have been reduced every year for the last 4 years. They are hiring more part time associates so they don't have to pay benefits. Lots of restrictions on when you can use Paid Time Off and your request are often denied. Too much focus on getting customers to open Macys Charge Cards and not enough recognition for meeting sales goals. Yearly raises are usually less than 2%. Not much incentive to succeed. Promotions from within are few and far between.

Advice to Management

value your associates and give them an adequate paycheck to survive. Raises should reward those who have obtained their sales goals. Raise the housekeeping standards so employees could use the restrooms in their own store and not have to go out to the mall. Store leadership needs to be visible and actively helping associates be successful.
