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

    Pros

    Working at Macy's MLO taught me valuable HR systems. I found the career I wanted.

    Cons

    No communication. The HR manager was manipulative & divisive. The corporate office would not let go of control to allow the local team to mold the environment towards our community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of control. Clean house in the HR department. I would come back if that happens.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent but not great

    Cons

    training is really bad, insurance is outrageous, everyone thinks they are in charge, too many bosses and supervisors. most supervisors don't "work" just stand around and talk. Hours are long, and they are only worried about numbers, they could care less about you as a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start over!!! care about your employees more and pay alittle more, you tell us what the company is making and you pay us peanuts and work us like dogs. Breaks are too short for 12 hour shifts and need more seating outside

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

    Pros

    This is a easy simple job but is not very challenging.

    Cons

    Pay is low but it should be because you are unskilled labor. Macy's will not pay for any schooling but the good news is that the job is so simple you do not need any. At most companies a regular operator has a more technical job than this one. This is not a real mainenance job you are a glorified cjanitor. Job duties include painting, unclogging toilets, working on paper towel and soap dispensors and some times unjamming conveyors. Working here will not prepair you for working a real maintenance job. You also change batteries and operate the compactor and bailer. I have worked over 20 years in maintenance and this type of work is beneath me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just promote the battery changer to do this job.

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

    Pros

    Good vacation policy, the in house leadership works together through extremly difficult situations to ensure succcess of the daily operations.

    Cons

    Peak season is seven days a week for executives. Starts in October ends in December. Often you are asked to work extra days to cover for weaker managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the experience you gain here to go to a company that understands fulfillemnt.
