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

    Pros

    If you are a good employee, then you will go far with the company (and with the company's help).

    Cons

    The joy of the holidays only happens when they're over.

    Advice to Management

    Please always try to fill your hours, even over fill them, because there will always be call outs. If the business is just not there for your hours filled, then we can always send people home early (and there are always takers).


  2. "Great Place to Learn, but lots of politics"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, it was a great learning experience, if your an Assistant Buyer and you get paired with a buyer that wants to teach and enjoys promoting you, you will have lots of responsibility.

    Cons

    Lateral moves are difficult. There are lots of politics and if you work under the wrong manager..SOL

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees to make their own business decisions without making them feel like they will get fired for saying the "wrong" thing.
