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 worked at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked the weekly pay, and versatility of scheduling. It was fun to try and rack up as much in commission and you got to have lunch in the taste bar. You were surrounded by high-end merchandise and it was very refreshing.

    Cons

    I worked in shoes. Overwhelming experience with commissioned pay, maintaining sales, management and dealing with several customers at the same time. Coworkers and managers can be very nasty. I could not balance school and work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful of your employees. Have consideration when giving assignments and approving availability.
