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

Pros

The environment at Macy's stores is great for people who like to work with others. If you are relatively solitary, I wouldn't recommend working for this store. The co-workers are great and there seems to be plenty of opportunity for advancement. There are also good benefits for all workers.

Cons

You are required to learn a lot in a short period of time. My first day on the job (after training) was on the sales floor, by myself. However, I felt that my training was sufficient to be on the sales floor and I was able to learn anything necessary to do my job quickly. There are some problems that come up though. Nevertheless, management is always easy to get a hold of when there's a problem.

Advice to Management

Try to not staff people alone on their first day.

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

    Pros

    *The 20% employee discount is great

    Cons

    * Full-time and part-time fragrance commission employees allowed to dictate that on-call employees (who also earn commission) are NOT to ring any commissionable items ... making the on-call employees ring commissionable items under the full-time and part-time employee ID numbers ... thus stealing their commissions.

    *Management aware but turns a blind eye to the practice.

    *You can break rules left and right if you are getting customers to sign up for a Macy's credit card. That is the most valued attribute an employee can have ... to talk a customer into opening a 27%+ APR credit card.

    *Our bathrooms are usually filthy. I have gotten many customer complaints about them. I always go next door to Lord & Taylor to use their bathroom.

    Advice to Management

    Most employees have stopped telling you their concerns because nothing at all gets done about them. You have the opportunity to make this a really great store ... don't lose it.
