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

Pros

I remember the person next to me at the register was great. Plus employee benefits. I got discounts on a lot of things.

Cons

They fired the person next to me whom I liked and then I had this foreign woman who didn't speak English next to me. I had to help her with the register and with what the customers wanted! Plus the managers were very unfair. Everyone was so competitive and they gave out working hours unfairly. We weren't treated with dignity, and none of the teams were tight-knit like I hoped for.

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

    Pros

    There is a great effort to create a positive and learning atmosphere. The people in the trenches are generally great people to work with.

    Cons

    There is little concern for work/life balance. The amount of hours you put in as an exempt employee only increases and forget about seeing family during the Holidays. Also your development and advancement entirely depends on who your store manager is, as does the execution of company culture. Compensation is severely lacking, the best way to get a raise is to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Become more accessible to the people on your front lines. They don't get that when asked about Senior Management who that really is, they think it is the Store Manager.
