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

Pros

Very likable co-workers. Managers were relatively easy going and tried to make getting loyalties/credit accounts more than just badgering the customer. The many sales that were going on made it easy for me to shop for what I wanted, haha.

Cons

You start out at minimum wage no matter what. This wasn't really a problem for me since I still live at home but others who live on their own and have school to pay for probably have to find another job. Customers can be extremely rude when they don't get what they want but hey, that's retail.

Advice to Management

Your employees will be more likely to stay with the company if the compensation was higher than minimum wage for new recruits, thus wasting less money on training.

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

    Pros

    No "pros" at this time.

    Cons

    Worst company I've ever worked for. Worst pay. Very cheesy. The all-black uniform is pathetic.

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

    Pros

    Great working atmosphere with employees.

    Cons

    Have to meet sales goal, or you WILL NOT be promoted. You only get a couple of cents raise every year. Sometimes finding hours for the week is hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are more qualified, as in education, rather than by experience alone. Care more about your employees.
