    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The environment. Employees were great to work with. My manager was very supportive.
    If you barley have any experience I would suggest this job because i have gained my communication skills and experience.

    Cons

    Pay is very little, you do more than what you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do well in your sales and continue to open excessive macy's credit card accounts they will recognize your effort.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was in an interesting area of the store.
    Liked making my own schedule.

    Cons

    No training, had to learn everything on my own which was fine since I learn well that way!
    Coworkers not helpful and would openly say "I am not helping you" and tried to steal commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if it is a busy time of the year, please give feedback and here your employees side of the story. Also don't rely so much on peoples coworkers teaching them. They may be good sales people, but may be lousy teachers.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You are able to slack off on the job, since there is no constant supervision.

    Cons

    Very few hours (max: 16 hrs per week)
    Managers make you feel awful about yourself.
    Don't accomodate to students that have class on Fridays and Saturdays. Hence, the reason why they layed me off.
    Don't train new employees properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the Macy's in the Glendale Galleria in Glendale, CA. Store is always flithy, and they don't train their new employees properly. I learned everything on my own, and from asking my co-workers.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Decent employee discounts
    Usually open to flexible scheduling
    Some days they have double employee discount where you can get some items for 30-40% off

    Cons

    Pay is low, especially with the HECTIC holiday season
    Required to have 4 customers open macy's credit cards a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees. Just because you are high up and earning good money does not mean we deserve to be treated like we do not exist. You NEED US for your company to flourish.
