Employee Review

    Working there is fine, but don't bother with the employee prepaid card

    Pros

    My fellow coworkers were nice, we were hidden back in the gift shop department. The structure of the department was sound and there were ways to keep you busy, but if it was just too slow, then they democratically sent people home.

    Cons

    The employee "discount" is a complete joke. You either have to have good credit to qualify for the credit card or you have hell with the prepaid card. I had the prepaid card because I didn't want the hassle of owing money, I just wanted to put money on the card and spend it. They apparently put a $50 credit on the PREPAID card and it caused a lot of issues with creditors. I was told that I owed them money, but when I would check the balance, it claimed they owed me the money. It was a huge hassle and the Macy's credit department is completely worthless. I finally just paid the money to shut them up so that I wouldn't screw over my own credit (which never should have been touched because IT'S A PREPAID CARD).

    Macy's is my life!

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for. If you are willing to work your butt off and not enjoy the holiday season then this job is for you. Solid benefits and when I was there solid retirement options with 401k and a cash account pension plan. It is retail so not much different anywhere else. But we used to say if you can make it and be successful at Macy's you can make it anywhere.

    Cons

    It is a grind through the holiday season, senior executives are required to work 6-day work weeks and minimum 10 hr shifts. You are supposed to get it back in time paid off. Numbers numbers numbers....only as good as long as your sales are going up and just as important your inventory shortage numbers going down.
