    I worked at Macy's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people to work! Everyone helps if you reach out to them. Understanding the wirk is easier. People around are supporting and helpful.

    Cons

    Short span delivery! Technology wise should upgrade to the latest and management wise they are causing little trouble. Not all the teammates are helpful

    Advice to Management

    Don’t underestimate someone when they don’t have Domain level experience. Ofcourse no one will. Every other project is unique and different. Instead use people effectively than giving hard time. Also please upgrade your stack trace.

    Pros

    Great workplace overall and Good culture.

    Cons

    Unfair supervisor .... and the supervisor is able to get by despite unfairness.

    Advice to Management

    Please take action against unfair supervisors ..... AS no sufficient action is taken - it is difficult to stick with a nice company like Macys - because of unfair supervisor. Discrimination of some sort continues often in more subtle ways ....

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

    Pros

    Discount
    Meeting people from around the world
    Online scheduling

    Cons

    Managers suck. They take the title way too far. They're immature and ask like they just came out of high school.

    Some customers were very disgusting and disrespectful.

    Commissioned sales co-workers were greedy, rude, annoying, immature, liars and unpleasant to work with.

    My specific store doesn't give a damn about their employees unless you're a favorite or bedding with someone.

    Felt like I was working on a plantation half of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Grow a heart. Listen to what customers and employees are saying. Give a crap about others other than yourselves.
