I worked at Macy's part-time

Pros

I loved my coworkers, I loved my customers.

Cons

The managers are awful. One insisted on screaming at a new hire in front of customers and coworkers, that she wasn't wearing "enough" eye makeup. Another time, a customer had verbally abused a coworker of mine to the point of tears because my coworker insisted on following mandated company policy that the customer didn't like, and management sided with the customer and admonished my well-meaning coworker for doing her job.

Advice to Management

There is literally no reason to encourage your management to abuse employees.

    "Decent temporary job."

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

    Pros

    Discount, flexible schedule

    I worked at Macy's seasonally, and it was a decent temporary job. The discount for Christmas shopping was also great, but I spent more money than I made. I nannied during this time and I made a lot more per hour nannying.

    Cons

    My first day was Black Friday, and although I had gone through training, which is done on a computer in the back room, I was thrown on a register with no one else around. For the most part it was fine, but I didn't have help when I needed it.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Good co-workers, finally have a good floor supervisor.

    Cons

    Inadequate pay, performance evaluation method horrible, management doesn't care about employees. Unethical behavior tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue - people need to be rewarded for hard work and exceeding expectations.
