    The management sucks and sometimes they overload you with duties that you cannot handle. The management does not care about you only them.

    Management should care more about their employees

    You dont have an office (unless you consider a stock room an office)
    You stand all day (its retail but doesn't make it better)
    very little diversity and inclusion at so many levels.
    lack of professionalism

    I have been working at Macy's as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Income and the ability to advance in the company.also the discount.

    Cons

    The pay to start isn't great but I know my work effort will make it more. You either have it or you dont. The real con is time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    R.H Macy was about innovation!
    There are many ways Macy's inc.
    Can boost the moral. If you employees are unhappy low vibes the customers will see it and it would effect the sales, no add-on no up sales nothing. I've worked in to different stores and the same thing. People want what they want and would buy more if suggested. If a customer comes in for shoes as if they are going to and event if so do they need an outfit make up ect..but if your employees are acting like children with the power of an ant I suggest head have to roll! And start at the top.
