    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse family like work environment. Retail side is very innovative and well positioned for future change and growth. Opportunities to grow within the company are widely available and arise often.

    Cons

    Pay is acceptable but on the lower side. Annual raise based on performance reviews will take over a decade to reach the maximum compensation level and not keep up with inflation and other dramatic rising costs of living. Parts of the company are stuck in old corporate ways and slow to change.

    Pros

    I interact good with the public. Im not afraid to speak to people I have never spoken to. Im also very enthusiastic.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly place to work, good merchandise so selling is relatively easy, and flexible shifts. Medical and 401k to full time employees.

    Cons

    Selling is a draw against commission, so if you don't make the sale you don't get $. This kind of pay structure doesn't contribute to a team environment or lead to good customer service. Most of the jobs are full time commission, or part time with no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    you might want to rethink commission sales

    Pros

    Pay is better than minimum wage. Many friendly coworkers. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Push for opening Macy's credit card. Good entry level, but not great as a career.
