    Pros

    Macy's is a great place to work. I like that they have so many items for me to look at while I sit at the cash regiester.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be a little long and sometimes customers dont have very nice things to say to me. I wish they always said nice things to me.

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

    Pros

    Macys is a company that looks to promote from within and job postings are very easy to find. The amount of vested time and vacations time is very fair and easy to take.

    Cons

    The job as Merchandise Manager is becoming to be less merchandise and more operational which is not the problem. The problem is the time you can dedicate to either side is becoming more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The chance for advancement is available and the compensation for advancement is normal. Macys has a good work-life balance for the retail world

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    They are very flexible with scheduling and hours, and my store was a positive working environment.

    Cons

    Sales associates don't make any $$, and you work your butt off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the commission pay system. If you pay people a living wage, you'll retain better talent and spend less money in the long run on training and hiring.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Extensive Training, great community spirit.

    Cons

    The leadership should be ashamed of themselves! I am still waiting for a call back from my manager (from Christmas) after 5 phone messages and 3 personal visits. Ridiculous. It's no wonder Macy's is always hiring.
    Their computer would randomly assign you to days you purposely did not sign up for since there wasn't enough staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for feedback. Return calls. Be a manager.
