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

Pros

They encourage an atmosphere of team work and strive to improve yourself. My fellow employees are wonderful and I love that they help each other to meet their sales goals. We work as a unit.

Cons

The hours are not always there for you.

Advice to Management

Increase the wages from 8.50 per hour for people who have had experience as seasonal employees. We have the advantage of being trained and have the practical experience. We are worth it.

    Pros

    The people there are incredibly nice.
    My manager understood exactly what was going on and dealt with it handidly.
    The hours are incredibly flexible

    Cons

    Some managers don't understand the dynamic of the sales floor so they consistently pressure you to "look busy" when there's almost nothing to do.
    The monthly sales goals encourage poaching of customers leading to bad dynamics between coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Have some faith in the lifeblood of your company, which are the sales associates.

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

    Pros

    Being able to advertise a shift so as to not lose points (assuming someone will pick it up).

    Cons

    Picking up shifts when there are none available; no break in points system (for sickness, emergencies); low pay, disrespect from managers. working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to associates with respect. Be fair and equal to everyone, not just the associates you like; managers should be professional. Some of these behaviors make Macy's seems like a company run by friends and families ...
