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

Pros

The people are friendly and there are always hours to be picked up in the store if you're looking to make a bit more cash that week

Cons

The schedules are generated every week, and it's always random. You can request to get specific days off, but there is never any guarantee. Ever.

Advice to Management

Allow people to have constant hours, instead of the random hours that are confusing and can lead to constant tardiness and call-offs

    I have been working at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    summer fridays (but many departments have too much work and cant take advantage of it) its in san francisco downtown and close to bart, but moving soon and will no longer be as convenient for commuters.

    Cons

    decisions are made by people who dont have experience outside of this company, old school of thinking in many areas. title matters more than knowledge. technology dept influences many decisions, but its only to keep up with the joneses. technology managers are not experienced technologists. too often problem employees are moved from one department to another. hr cares more about keeping tenured people employed and less about losing talented people. managers react when staff resigns and quickly counter-offers, but the morale and work-load never changes. throwing more money can only do so much, eventually smart people leave and old timers stay.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of old timers, bring in fresh talent. this goes for the entire company, not just one group.
