    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Learn about the business and learn how to make sure the store is profitable. Macys invest in their people through engagement and delivering results

    Cons

    If you're a workaholic then this is the perfect place. Every day is busy and will keep you going. Always something to do. If your not busy you're not doing something right.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paid Time off! Stupid awards you receive!

    Cons

    Company doesn’t have your back! Company changes direction weekly. Position is stated to complete your job in 47 hours per week. Reality is you work 55 plus and are expected to work more. Benefits are the worst you can get!!

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees! Lighten the work load and allow you employees to have lives beyond the red star! It’s no wonder so many other companies are doing better and have better engagement from from their employees.

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

    Pros

    Good amount of PTO compared to other industries.

    Flexible(ish) schedule.

    Backend Associate Discount is good and company does run special savings events for associates.

    Cons

    No work life balance in salaried positions. Be ready to work 6-7 days and not be given the tools necessary to succeed.

    Always worrying if job is going to be eliminated the next year.

    Combination of roles this past year has led to more disfunction in stores and pay disparity in the same role is major.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to accomplish goals your own way.

    Cons

    Low pay and raises. Eliminated AP mgr position. Combined with Operations, but Operations viewed as more important. Reviews based on areas you have little to no control over. Promotions not based on results or accomplishments. Store mgmt. does not have the same goals despite corp. msg. that everyone has same overall goals. Desperate budget cuts will be detrimental.

    Advice to Management

    Open honesty with middle management is necessary. Stop saying one thing , but doing another.
