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

Pros

Flexible hours and the ability to swap schedules with other employees. all of management and associates are kind, courteous and upbeat. there is growth and there are opportunities apparently if you push hard enough and are in the right clique

Cons

Manager's can also exhibit demeaning behavior, condescending and sometimes quippy. Also lack of payroll allotted for recovery leads to less sales involvement. Low pay just above minimum wage and macys money as a reward for doing well as observed by a manager or associate as going above and beyond. Pay raise is a last resort and then it is maxed out at 90 cents per hour increase per yearly review. This is a good place to work if you are a student or retired or a bored house wife looking for spending cash but no way to make a viable living as a by the hour sales associate. I had to threaten to quit before they offered other higher paying positions.

Advice to Management

Really not buying into the depression era tactics of macys money, i.e. company store money to buy more macys mechandise and go further into debt with the company.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule you obtain online.

    Cons

    No guaranteed shifts, too many employees and too much turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Learn who your employees are. Don't just treat them like a number.

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

    Pros

    People were decent to each other and managment tried to be also.
    Lots of shifts available for part timers-
    Nice working environment.

    Cons

    No control at all over scheduling, each weekcould be very different.
    Chief point of a manager's job was to "rally" employees to better efforts, it was almost
    embarrassing as the same old lines were trotted out at the daily meetings.
    Pay was not much over minimum wage for part timers.
    For full timers, only college kids that were young had a career path.
