    I worked at Macy's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Made some really good friends for the most part but it'll be hard to make friends with people you can trust now. It's in the mall which I like I guess.

    Cons

    Horrible managers
    Some horrible coworkers
    Horrible pay
    For the most part I felt like I was in high school all over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop gossiping and if your going to tell someone how to do their job learn what the job consists of first

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

    Pros

    ?????????? NONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, there is nothing I can list as a pro. I got suckered in with lies and promises of being able to "grow with the company" which means promotions.

    Cons

    Racial bigotry and favoritism. If you're a white English-speaking American, you're screwed. Evil and stupid managers and supervisors. No air conditioning. COMMISSION VS DRAW. It's a pretty twisted process. Imagine if you were a waiter/waitress relying on tips for income. Days or even months later, a diner who tipped you comes in to return what they ate and your tip that you got back then is deducted from your current salary. Employees will fight and steal sales for that commission. A new store sale or a product that's been discounted means customers coming back to return what they bought from you and re-buy it from someone else. The money you made for the time and effort you put in helping that customer now just goes to someone else behind a register and is deducted from you. Add the constant threats and harassment you'll receive from management if you don't open enough credit cards, get enough pre-sales, enroll enough Thanks for Sharing, get enough Search and Sends, etc. They will actually come down on you when the store is empty with no customers and you have had no sales. And when a manager or supervisor is needed for whatever reason -- good luck finding them. They're usually hanging out together, socializing in the executive office upstairs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No reason to bother. Everything falls on deaf ears. Let them continue to drive the company into the ground.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Store discounts, easy to manage scheduling, support is great as well

    Cons

    Pay is not what I expected... They deduct your hourly pay from your commission and you can even go into deficit, where you owe them money... They do expect you to be there for some shifts that start at 9am, but store doesn't open till 10am, first sales, maybe by 11am... In a commission only job where I'm being deducted hourly from commission, that doesn't feel right to me at all...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the Expediting work is taken out of the equation, you will end up with happier, stronger, and most importantly, more motivated sales associates. Expeditors should only be used in really busy days! The sales Associate ends up going and getting the product himself anyways... And that way, Macy's would be able to afford paying a "real" hourly + commission to sales associates, allowing them to earn a decent living without sacrificing so much... In this specific function, when pay is not what is expected, it clouds the general corporate perspective of the Sales Associate throughout the whole corporation in a domino effect. Such a great company like Macy's should not allow that to happen..
