I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The employees are all really friendly and have a sense of teamwork. The discount is pretty good and applies to most items.

Cons

They cut the pay for commissioned salespeople. It is no longer a place where you can make a decent living without having a second job.

Advice to Management

Need to improve the pay structure for commissioned employees

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and Paid-Time-Off. In comparison to other department stores, Macy's can be very competitive with salary. New managers start off with 3 weeks of PTO.

    Stability - Once you're in, you're in. It can be easy to "breeze through" your job and stay in the same job title for years. If you have excellent communication and social skills and you network across your district and other stores, you can excel pretty easily. Be prepared to be mobile within a geographical region (i.e. Chicagoland) for more advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Retail Schedule - You sacrifice any stability
    Holidays - Say "Bon voyage" to Thanksgiving and Christmas. You're better off rescheduling these holidays than trying to get around it. If you take a job in retail, this is a given and you should be prepared for it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer as much work-life balance as you can despite the retail/holiday hours. More weekends off, two days in a row off, etc. will go a long way. We know it's retail; we know the demands of the business, so we appreciate every inch you can give.
