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

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    "Overall, Not Bad for Retail"

    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 think this job could support someone for long-term but as a part-time job while attending school or something it would probably work well

    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

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Macy's for less 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.
