    Pros

    Flexibility; working different shifts, you can pick up shifts online [or on the registers/computers at work] or advertise shifts you do not want to other people to pick up all without having to ask a manager or otherwise.

    Cons

    Not paid enough for the expected work. We have sales goals even in non-commissioned areas. Therefore equaling in no teamwork between associates who have to take care of fixing up areas or taking care of fitting rooms. Although that is when you have more than one person in an area. Lately, you have no time to think because you will be running around trying to take care of customers, clean your never ending fitting rooms, pick up the clearance racks, fold clothes, use the register, open accounts, etc.. A lot of the time you are too busy you have to choose to do one or the other and most people choose sales so the area because a disaster zone or you choose your area and next week have to wait for your manager to go over your scorecard to tell you are not doing anything right.

    Scorecards only show you how you are doing in sales. Nothing else will get acknowledged. You will feel like you are in school every week you go over your scorecard and how you can do better.

    Managers are dishonest, not helpful, negative, disrespectful, use favoritism, talk about other associates behind backs, unapproachable, point fingers, do not check up on areas, stay in their office and talk all day, do not listen to others opinions and therefore do not do their jobs.

    There is rare chance you can have a career opportunity here. No one lets you know when there are opportunities and even then your scorecard will keep you from ever advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat associates with respect.

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

    Pros

    Macy's offers decent pay for a part-time retail job, clothing discounts and ability to transfer stores if need be. I've known people to move up to corporate after working part-time for a store for a few years.

    Cons

    Turnover is quite common, there are a lot of season employees and hours can often be hard to come by if you are looking to work closer to full time you often have to negotiate with your co-workers. If you manage to get on a good team where everyone does equally good work, you are lucky, but if you have a bad egg who just sits at the register to ring up sales and meet goals, don't expect management to help much.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff as if they aren't disposable and you might get better sales and results.
