    I have been working at Macy's part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Personal and long term growth with an established Company with numerous locations nationwide. Extremely culturally diverse.

    Cons

    There were no cons actually. Due to the shortage of AST's the HR office was somewhat delayed yet every applicant was acknowledged immediately and treated professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing a great job.

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

    Pros

    Great experience with customer service, all of the people were great to work with and I learned a lot about myself as well as Macy's as a company. Great training program as well.

    Cons

    I worked there over the winter holidays for 2013 and experienced a lot of mishaps that I am assuming are rare during regular retail months. It wasn't bad but I won't go back as a seasonal employee.

    Pros

    Very innovative company. Keyed-in to the shifts of the economy and the ever-changing retail trends.

    Cons

    The EDP program highlights certain people whether they deserve it or not. The rest of us are the left to figure it all out with a minimum amount of help or guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping people where they are because it makes your job easier is a terrible business plan.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, friendly coworkers, and 20% employee discount are great pros for working at Macy's. You have control over your days off and you can switch with coworkers to fit you schedule outside of work.

    Cons

    The management sucks. It's really hard to move up. Retail hours are always terrible. You work every weekend and holiday. The point system seems good until no one wants to switch with you when you need to be off.

    Pros

    nothing . just a job

    Cons

    breaks , managers are ignorant and don't care about their employees , only sales goals and credits
    cleaning up fitting rooms after trifling customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    thoroughly select the people who manage your stores ! They are a key factor in why you have high turn over rates !
