    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Employee discount. Meet new people. Easy and fast paced. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    New management. Needs work especially the store manager. not flexible with school.

    Advice to Management

    Store manager needs to be more friendlier. Management needs to stop micromanaging. Support associates. Less district visits whom dont appreciate associates hard work. Treat everyone equal. And look at the associate hard work and recognize them. Not just one person. .let people grow in the company based on their work ethics and not based on how many points they have.

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

    Pros

    -Ability to advertise and offer covers for shifts online. -General sense of camaraderie among hourly staff.

    Cons

    -Staffing at this location is horrible, leaving other associates to take on more for lack of people. People are not being hired, and there are constant callouts. -I was referred to by a sexist term by a coworker and there have been no consequences for that employee. -Often pulled to work out of department in areas where there is no coverage. I have many times been stuck covering at a register when I'm a fitting...

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

    Pros

    Easy to swap or advertise your shifts. Good discounts.

    Cons

    Scheduling is a nightmare. Done by a computer who won’t care if you’re by yourself on Black Friday for 10 hours. No coverage when you’re alone, HR never calls people in if they want to pick up shifts. You’re required to work when they need you, you have no choice. Can’t even get someone to cover you who isn’t working if it’s a key day. Management is a joke. They let go so many employees so the stores are skeletons. Macy’s...

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Can move around, there is always opportunities for those who work hard

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Fun environment, flexible hours, sick pay

    Cons

    Loss prevention are not up front of policies, they actually trick you for employee turn arounds. Its ridiculous!! They fire so many new hires and these people are young, very young(anywhere from 18-25). For some girls it's their very first job. What a way to start your life in the work field, what would that do to their self-esteem at that young age. This is ABUSE! Low pay but expect Nordstrom service.

    Advice to Management

    Asset Protection firing innocent new hires who are not yet properly trained on policies/procedures. It makes their report look good and they get promoted. Total abuse!
