    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Macy's has many opportunities for anyone who wants to work hard in customer service. As a sales associate I love who I work with and what I do. The money is not great but with commission and you have to really sell to make commission, its not bad! If you do your job you are left alone. Don't make waves!

    Cons

    Standing all day. Restrooms are usually dirty, lunch room is depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Stores are old and dirty.

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

    Pros

    commissions added to check for big purchase items working in big ticket departments like housewares, sometimes youll get a shark that buys the store basically and you can relax for the rest if the day if not the entire week knowing you made some money.

    Cons

    you had to make their money for the day (goals, quaotas) and then eveything after that you keep a percentage of.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. It works with my school schedule since I have school in the daytime and come home at night.

    Cons

    Sometimes the customer's can get a little cranky but working at Macy's tries to eliminate the problem but can't.

    Advice to Management

    Better customer service stations and people willing to help customers at all costs.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, friendly staff, hours were flexible, weekends off with some exceptions

    Cons

    Occasionally some extremely long hours. Some departments do not work well with others. Pay was not sufficient for duties and tasks asked and required. Terrible raise of .05 after 1 year of putting in nearly 50-60 hour work weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff properly. Do not expect employee loyalty when you do not give enough to expect getting back. Do not ask employees to stay and offer a raise when previous raise was only .05. Give raises according to performance and not based off companywide/storewide average.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to block out days you can't work. If you have classes on a Monday and Wednesday morning you can block the schedule from appointing you those times.

    Cons

    Low pay; draw! Management's push for credit card opening. Fulfillment pulling on a time to make sales. Unrealistic goals. Low commission %.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the higher management in place in that store now. The new store manager has ruined the store feel. She has driven most the best out. Look at the turnover. Treat your associates as humans. Do the right thing by humans. When the AC is out close the store!

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement and flexible schedules for students. A good place to work for a positive reinforcement in motivate employees to successful sales.

    Cons

    Outdated cash registers slows down production and keeps lines too long that frustrates customers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Technology needs to be updated in all stores and commission needs to be discontinued to allow sales associate to give better customer service without associate competition to make sales quotas.

    Pros

    Lots of ways to grow and better yourself. Opportunities to move around and/or get promoted.

    Cons

    They demand their employees "not just work a register", but do far more to serve the customer and keep their metrics up... But they pay less than most "standard register worker jobs". It's insulting to the workers, and their turnover is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a competitive wage.
