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

    Pros

    Flexible hours with the opportunity to pick up more during the week/month.

    Cons

    The worst part about the job is dealing with the customers. if you're a people person and can be patient in dealing with cranky old women and people trying to steal/do shady stuff this is pretty okay retail job.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Like anything, working at Macy's can go either way. It can be a platform or just another 9 to 5. It all depends on how you utilize whatever position you start in.

    A pro is that the company offers great discounts and employee incentives with access to wonderful products.

    Cons

    A con is work life balance can become a problem during commercial holidays and supervisors will completely cut your hours at the last minute. Some employees have had schedules of 4 hours a week, which isn't conducive.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive and genuine with your team. Do not place the value of results over the value of people. Continue to encourage team to give back because that brings the team together.

    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    Very easy to get hired.

    Cons

    I worked in the warehouse as a seasonal packer. Management is a joke. They have no idea what is going on or how to schedule shifts or how to make sure each job actually has what they need to be able to do their job. They have no idea how to train new employees. And the employee discount is a joke. Way to hard to actually get the discount.

    Advice to Management

    Please give your management better training, i.e., how to schedule shifts, how to work with and coordinate with other mangers , how to probably speak to employees and how to properly train employees.
