      I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Union Square store was an excellent place to talk with a global array of customers. I worked with seasoned professionals, in a variety of roles, whom understood the dynamic retail industry and customer success.

      Cons

      Location. San Francisco's downtown area has become a pit of public needle use and random violence. Also, with the focus on online retail, in store support from sales to management has decreased, creating customer service challenges. Work-life balance is another pain point. Forget weekends and holidays, especially during Q4. This is part of the retail executive's job, but I have experienced better balance at other...

      Advice to Management

      This is not a store level solution, and Central Committee from Ohio is not read this. But if it happened to make it to someone: better in store managerial support.

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Thrown into the fire, so you get a lot of on-the job experience like hiring/firing, sales techniques, and training associates

      Cons

      Thrown into the fire of managing a department, and judged off of sales that have more to do with how the company is doing than your particular efforts. They advertise it as a fast-track into corporate management, but in reality you will just be a retail manager of some department wherever they choose. You'll likely be understaffed and underhelped

      Advice to Management

      Invest in associate hours so that managers have the help they need to actually make an impact. Either choose if you're going to be an online retailer and ship out of warehouses, or invest in your stores

      Pros

      I loved the flexibility of the schedule. Also I really enjoyed working with the public.

      Cons

      The salary was not competitive and certainly not a living wage.

      Increase the wages to a living wage for employees.
