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

    Pros

    Great associates to work with.

    Cons

    Management talks down to people and each other. They have a need to humiliate associates and even one another if they need to make a point.

    Advice to Management

    You need to stop firing people and start building morale again. This company is on a landslide and it will fail very soon and a lot of people will end up losing their jobs because of incompetence from the top.
