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

    Pros

    I had two excellent managers, Ashley Annette, and Max. I had a good relationship with fellow employees. Human Resource was very helpful.

    Cons

    Scheduled for only 3 hours at a time.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be to work with all employees to improve scheduling. Make it worth driving into work.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discounts, there are some great leaders that are willing to help & coach.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult to many hoops to jump through. Also lack of needed supplies.

    Advice to Management

    If a support leader has to do a sales lead then sales manager position before becoming a merchandise manager, then it's only fair that a sales manager should have to go through support roles before they can be a merchandise manager.

    Pros

    Great location. Good sales. Neat home department

    Cons

    There are some very rude associates. They are not very polite or welcoming. They even disregard other empolyees in front of customer's. Its hard to ask for help in certain departments. I hace only been working at the company for a few months and have had some unpleasant encounters.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees treat everyone with respect. Guide them to be pleasant and helping. Managers also need lead by example.

    Pros

    A few of the pros were they offer good management, nice discounts and a positive work environment. I also enjoyed the food at lakeshore grill.

    Cons

    Not everyone works very hard and that makes it harder to my job. It's also very frustrating and disappointing when that happens.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better workers.
