    I worked at Macy's for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Nice people throughout the store

    Cons

    Hours can be low. Fluctuates with business needs. This is how retail often works.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced (usually), varied, and easy-to-learn store environment Really good about wage compliance (mandatory lunches or system locks you out, encouraged breaks) Paid training is useful Mall benefits- often get slight discount in other stores etc Good advancement opportunities

    Cons

    Close to minimum wage On your feet at all times, have to be "doing something" or risk getting reprimanded (often, employees leave other things unfinished so when customers slow down they have tasks to do while they wait) Hours/departments aren't super flexible

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on the computer system so much for scheduling, particularly minors get locked out because there are no open shifts even though there are plenty of places they can be helpful. Also, allow seating (even if it's just leaning on stools) for associates at registers to minimize fatigue.

  4. "Due to new layout, shoes were a mess!"

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

    Pros

    Discount okay. Flexible schedule. Hours.

    Cons

    Setting up the shoe department to be like shoe warehouse was a horrible decision! People easily steal shoes since their sizes are right there and since the displays are so high you can't see all the customers. Plus, you cannot engage with customers like you used to. The customers throw all the stuff in the boxes on the floor, change the sizes in the boxes and there is always a missing shoe every day. Push the Macy's card...

    Advice to Management

    Vacuum the entire store every night! Don't let your employees bring their vaping toys into the store ever, especially shoes since I know they vape in the stockroom on top of texting all day. Change the format back to displaying one shoe and get rid of the DSW idea unless you're okay with having people walk away with your shoes.

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

    Pros

    The people were awesome. Management worked with you, as far as hours and time off.

    Cons

    The pay could of been better. Moves and projects needed to be planned better. Hours at times were very long, to make up for bad planning.

    Advice to Management

    Review floor moves before moving merchandise to make sure it fits. Would save a lot of wasted time and energy.

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

    Pros

    The only thing was the weekly paychecks

    Cons

    Mostly horrible management. Credit Cards are terrible and the pressure put on employees to solicit them was worse.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the clouds and get down to earth with your employees personally care about their well being. Quit caring about the numbers and pay more attention to the situations that need tending to. Also start beleiving the employees more over the customers.

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

    Pros

    I was the person setting up sales, changing prices, and merchandising the store. It was great being able to work independently in my own section, but we still got to know our team well. Management was always friendly and there to help when I needed. Every so often we would get bagels and doughnuts in the morning, as well as occasional pot lucks.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a mindless, repetitive, but easy job, you've found it. Let's just say it can get pretty boring.
