    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 5 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 (More than a year)

    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 (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding ability to multi task, inspire, communicate, delegate and set clear expectations up, down and across the managerial group to maximize execution levels to highest level.

    Cons

    Strive to create dynamic set ups to inspire customer sales which may go above and beyond a vendor or company direction.... my viewpoint being that that information is a starting point and/or minimum expectation vs. stopping point.

    Advice to Management

    Meet commitments and have the knowledge and experience to properly access and commit to a timeline.... and always meet as closely as possible while communicating any new challenges or hurdles.

    Increase wages
