    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great scheduling around my class schedule, I was able to learn every area of the store over 4 yrs.

    Cons

    They told us they were closing the store the same day the media was told, with less than 60 days notice of closing.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate, not management, think of your loyal employees sometimes and not only money at the end of the day.

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

    Pros

    I took a part-time job in cosmetics at Macy's to make extra cash. Management was great and if you work hard you can advance fairly quickly. I made quite a but of money during the holidays as well. Macy's pays a commission on sales you make and they also pay out Macy's money for each credit card you open. Macy's money saved you so much money off the items you want to buy.

    Cons

    You get called in a lot on your days off but you can always so no. Also, if they call you in or ask you to work longer shifts it is because they like you.

    Pros

    The associate discount is a great perk at working for macys and that you can use it on top of the other sales and discounts.

    Cons

    As a temporary employee I did not get any benefits that a part or full time employee would give. Also because I worked during the christmas holiday, alot of the full time workers were very competitive with meeting their sales goals.
