    Current Employee - Seasonal Sales Associate in Coeur d'Alene, ID

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You have control over what shifts you work.

    Cons

    If you want to be paid by check, it won't happen, only though auto-deposit into your account or by credit to a debit card. It is time-consuming to go through the schedule each day to look for shifts available. Be prepared to be on your feet, as in most retail jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps some people would just like to be assigned a steady work schedule.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -A decent amount of autonomy when it comes to running and owning your business -Ability to try different functions (buying, planning, product development, etc) -The people - for the most part people compete with the market and not each other -Diverse and inclusive culture -Flex-time ability to work from home -"Dress for your day" can dress more casual on days with no formal meetings -Macy's employee discount

    Cons

    -Benefits including health and dental insurance are the bare minimum when compared to the market -Don't observe all national holidays - Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, etc. -Employees are encouraged to "drive your development" you have to know what you want to do next and network to get the position through company portal

    Advice to Management

    "Driving your development" works to an extent, however, when you are open to new roles and functions it would be helpful to have SOME guidance from HR to understand what is available instead of just networking from role to role.
