    Pros

    The employees discount is the primary reason I stayed so long. My coworkers were pretty decent. My location had a good selection of designers.

    Cons

    The long sale weekend and holiday hours, the annoyed customers, coupons and uber discounts galore, the unsanitary bathroom, shall I continue?

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the details

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stick with one department. Attendance point system IF you have been there for years and have perfect attendance. Can have 50 attendance points and call out 49 times and not get fired. Easy jobs

    Cons

    "Orientation" is a lot of videos most of which have nothing to do with your job. Lasted 3 days. Deptford mall hr left you alone for long periods of time not knowing what to do next. Learned break, attendance policies, and how to use the site a few weeks after starting. Generated schedules are awful. Always working weekends unless you have not avaliable days to use. You start out with 3? Everyone in every department calls out bc of the attendance point system. Most employees are mean. Been yelled at for nothing. Commission is awful.

    Advice to Management

    I see my manager for a few minutes every week.. that's it. Employees are found off the floor on cell phones while a selected few work. Who is driving the department?

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with great people! Lots to learn! Environment that gets you ready to handle fast-paced tasks. Higher management really tries to help you out to grow.

    Cons

    Customers can get a little crazy. The store sometimes gets messy, and if you have to work the fitting room, GOODLUCK.

    Advice to Management

    Many employees do not put in much effort, so be on their tails a little more. Fitting rooms are disasterous. And lots of open cash registers and lines of people looking to purchase items.
