    Pros

    The discounts and constant shopping were fun. The store was busy and we were very rarely bored.

    Cons

    The store was overwhelming during the holidays. Also, it was difficult to get time off.

    Advice to Management

    They do a good job of recognizing associates.

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance
    - Schedule is pretty consistent and steady
    - Great company values. They do a great job at keeping their employees updated on how the business is going with monthly rallies and daily team meetings
    - No dress code

    Cons

    - Old and outdated equipment that is constantly getting jammed, blowing a fuse or just plain not working properly. Maintenance is constantly fixing the equipment but it still does it
    - In order to receive a discount in the stores you have to sign up for a Macy's credit card
    - Pay doesn't match up with the work they expect of you
    - Making full time here is almost next to impossible

    Advice to Management

    - Update the equipment
    - More opportunity for full time
    - Fix the pay scale

    Pros

    At Macy's there is competitive compensation and unlimited room for career growth. You can advance in your career as quickly or as slowly as you like.

    Cons

    The retail schedule can be draining at times but executives are offered a considerable amount of PTO/Vacation time so it does tend to balance it self out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do much of what you already do perhaps with more focus on engagement at the senior level.
