    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The team their maintains the areas moving and give great efforts plus are doing their very best to give customers high standard of services, First ever experience working with the company and i weren't ever disappointed of being welcomed.

    eh i guess when closing and you got a pickup/ride that doesn't know of employees exit, it makes a slightly few mindsets get frustrated to know where to arrive for non yet drivers license employees.

      I worked at Macy's part-time

      Pros

      Employee discount (with a Macy's credit or debit card, of course); management was easy to work with; easy to swap shifts; paid training; training covers policies on dealing with difficult customers and other tough situations; company policies were pretty clear about what to do; it's retail work so experiences change drastically based on the people. my personal experiences at this location were mostly positive; I don't...

      Cons

      store was very competitive about sales goals but no real rewards for the associates meeting those goals; training was done alone with a computer, which is good if thats how you want to learn; pay was about average for retail

      Advice to Management

      better supervision over departments. especially when there is an employee working who is known to cause problems; maybe have some sort of orientation or something for new employees other than the temp hires for the shopping season

      I worked at Macy's for more than a year

      Pros

      - You get paid weekly - You can choose your own shifts when you want to work - They will hire you right on the spot

      Cons

      -There is no training. You sit in a room, watch videos and then they send you out onto the sales floor. It's incredibly nerve wracking - There were never any shifts available on the choose your shift website - They are obsessed with recovery. They have so many employees in the store already doing this that I would just walk around the store doing nothing.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on training your employees instead of recovery and STAR

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      You get discounts on everything, and are notified before everybody about the coming sales

      Cons

      Stressful schedule, managers are very bossy and pressure you to open credit for customers which is basically another credit card for the poor customer which also means more money/credit spent for something you could buy for much less price in a different store. I left the job because i felt guilty manipulating people that the Macy's credit is good and they should get it.

      Advice to Management

      Change your strategies, be happy with what you got and respect your employees.

        Former Employee - Virginia in Fairfax, VA

        I worked at Macy's

        Pros

        Commission (I made about $13-15/ hour during the holiday season and $9-10/hour during the spring) People you work with Flexibility when it comes to scheduling (great for college students)

        Cons

        During the holiday season, they do make you work some crazy hours, but that's normal with retail

        Advice to Management

        I've never had any issues with management. They were all friendly and I was surprised that the general managers knew my name within the first couple weeks I started working.

        I worked at Macy's

        Pros

        I enjoyed learning new trends and having the ability to be creative at work. The employee discount is a plus as well.

        Cons

        Stagnant workplace, very little room for growth or promotion. Pay isn't sufficient for the amount of work expected to be completed.
