    Pros

    Great place to work and learn. Plenty of ongoing training and career development.

    Cons

    Overtime was not allowed; in this job overtime was sometimes needed. Disciplinary action (or fear of) made this awkward.

    Advice to Management

    Listen just a little closer when managers are giving feedback. There is always some truth buried in what looks like a complaint!

    Pros

    good pay, fun environment, continued job development, good benefits, good discounts

    Cons

    Management at my particular store liked to tell you what to do but did nothing when I came to them and told them i was struggling. I didn't want them to do the work for me, but I was looking for their advice and collaboration on coming up with a plan to get the results that they wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Be there for your team, assist in helping them get where you want to be by being a mentor not just a shot caller.

    Pros

    Training is great and the managers are awesome

    Cons

    Very few hours and commission wasn't good at all

    Advice to Management

    Hire less cashiers and more personnel to merchandise and do go backs. Better hourly rate pay.

    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    The best reason to work with Macy's is that there is no discrimination between the employees. Everyone feels comfortable in Macy's.

    Cons

    The work day is always busy. There are not enough workers for the job that needs to be done. Sometimes the working hours for part-time employees have been reduced to minimum or 12 hr. per week, and the salary is just not enough.

    Pros

    Flexible hours! I worked here through college and rarely had a problem getting time off when requested. Multiple employee incentives, open communication is encouraged between associates and higher-ups, environment lends itself to building strong relationships with coworkers

    Cons

    Management sometimes came across as gossipy, and during times of high stress some would take out frustrations on employees instead of dealing with things professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but remember to take a deep breath once in awhile. Chances are if you're feeling stressed, so are those of us on the sales floor are too.
