    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great pay, interesting folks, and it is fun to sell the macy's credit card accounts to customers. You get $3 every time a customer agree to one!

    Cons

    There is a lot of merchandise and customers expect employees to be knowledgeable about it

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There really are not pros. The store is a union store however everyone makes min wage. Union does nothing for you.

    Cons

    They do not ask you to stay to work they tell you to stay. If you are commission be careful because they will cheat you. Managers do very little except sit in the office. When you call them they act like it is a disturbance to their office time. Any information is always incorrect. You have to call the home office to get the right information. The store is dirty and they are so short staffed that you cannot take...

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be out on the selling floor. Managers need to know the department that they manage. Supervisors are afraid of upper management and so they never follow through with anything because they do not want to put their job in jeopardy.

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    None pros of working at macys

    Cons

    The company is turning into a joke they could care less about the wellbeing of their employees. If you would like having fun entering while working forget about it.

    Advice to Management

    Just close down the company is a joke no wonder nordstrom is doing much better.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Occasionally can get $$$ most discounts are done by “Macy’s Money”. Useable for 1 year only, but fades faster than that.

    Cons

    Have to try for so many credit cards per hours worked. If you don’t they start scheduling you fewer hours.

    Former Employee - Commission Sales Womens Shoes in Bethesda, MD

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You develop some techniques for sales and learn how to engage with customers. I also loved working in the mall which is close to my house and learning about the company culture, feeling like you are part of the Macy's family.

    Cons

    The problem especially with my position is that it is hard to make commission. Also, their shoes are more averagely priced and customers tend to shop in the clearance rack so it is hard to make your commission. I only made an hourly rate. Also, the women's shoe stock room is very disorganized so it is hard to find shoes when demanding customers are waiting to get their shoes and service immediately.

    Advice to Management

    There should always be a manager available every day to assist customers that are having problems.

  6. "loss prevention"

    Current Employee - Administrative Support Team Associate in Bethesda, MD

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Employee's discount is OK, getting Macy's money, associates are friendly, good sale prices, love pre-sale.

    Cons

    Duties for this job are never ending as you are the Core of the entire operation of the store, early means 2hours before the store opens, during the holidays as early as 4am,crazy hours. Not fair pay for the volume of work, training needs to be though

    Advice to Management

    Offer fair wages and the retention rate will be higher, don't delegate management responsibility to ASTs, play your part and do the job you are being paid to do.
