    Pros

    nice environment on the sales floor, all that walking will make you lose weight without trying

    Cons

    impossible sales goal, managers stress 'loyalty points' at every possible moment, competing with co-workers for the sales to make the daily goal erodes workplace camaraderie, some old timers will watch you fail

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try making the same sales goal that you set for your workers

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

    Pros

    Macy's gives people the opportunity to take ownership of your work/tasks/business unit.

    Cons

    If you are not in the "right" division, no movement, no real opportunity for growth or promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting your people regardless of division or business unit.

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Discount

    Incentives
    Weekly Pay
    Always busy and learning new things, did almost everything except use the register.

    Cons

    Low pay
    Unpaid breaks
    Easy burn out, was nearly disabled by the time I hit 35 hours
    You work with the guru employees who have been in the field for 20+ years that have attitude (not all of them are bad)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers were great and understanding.

    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.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Made my own hours, given a lot of freedom, and there were a lot of employees who were genuinely happy to be there.

    Cons

    Was a seasonal hire that was told time and time again that I would be held over, but none of the seasonal employees were kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If opportunities are not going to be available don't make it seem like there will be. I understand it may make the employees work harder, but it can leave people in a bad position after their time is up.
