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

Pros

I love the online scheduling system. It's perfect for when you can't work a shift and don't want to go through the hassle of calling other employees. It's also great if your availability opens up and you want to pick up an extra shift.

Cons

Training, training, training. I have worked in retail before and this is some of the worst training ever. You do the required training on the computer and then you're free to work on the floor. That's it. You're never paired with another employee and you kind of learn really important information as issues arise. My first night there I was in a department alone and had two registers two close.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful atmosphere.
    Fellow employees are great.
    Management gives good space and also shows that they care about their employees.
    Daily morning rally.
    Weekly pay.

    Cons

    You need a credit card to get the employee discount (but who cares... if thats what I have to do for an extra 20% off)

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, decent pay and excellent benefits for part or full time associates.

    Cons

    It is still retail so you have to be ready to work nights, weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Add human element to the computer scheduling process for better sales floor coverage. This would lead to better customer service and increased sales.
