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

    Pros

    Straightforward job
    Lots of downtime outside of peak season
    Good exercise, not too strenuous
    Lunches and breaks enforced and guaranteed
    Entry-level, trainable
    Weekly pay

    Cons

    Lack of funding for new technology leads to inefficiency
    Occasional “office politics,” mixed communication
    Can be physically demanding at times, depending on shift and officers available
    Hours scheduled weekly, subject to change
    Hours based on all employee availability,
    Hours may be cut outside of peak season

    Advice to Management

    Please communicate with your associates and fellow managers, especially in regards to deadlines and expectations. Corporate, please don’t be so stingy when it comes to improving facilities. Innovation is insurance, money spent on improvements now is money saved from disasters later.

    Pros

    Absolutely none glad i left

    To begin with they warehouse was janky. It was dark inside very dirty, it looked like a horror movie. You also never had a fixed schedule, you were always on call a day before.

    Pros

    nothing is good about working in macy's-- prestige boloney

    Cons

    nothing is good -- the ones on top make so much money while sales people make nothing and they pay you minimum wages f prestige boloney - they are legal thieves and the people who work there do not need the money or they work to kill time, but if you want to survive this place is not for you ., imagine you live in the city where you have to pay high rent and you are getting paid 8-10 dollars an hours f garbage low life corporations are nothing but legal thieves . even 15 dollars is not enough per hour and no one should work there - minimum wages should be 20-25 dollars an hour but as long as you have people accepting the slavery they do not care- f macy's made in china clothes anyways -- this is my opinion and i stick with it

    Pros

    I love their flexibility and the way they praise my work. Whether it's a small task or big.

    Cons

    They have ridiculous hours during the holidays that you are forced to work. The pressure you get to get credit, whether they got approved or not; it still counts for us, is annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Be around to help.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good if you are working with commission. Very good job to have if its temporary or your first job.
    Hours are pretty good too.

    Cons

    The company values making money more than the condition of the employees. You have goals that you have to meet EVERYDAY. There is a certain number of credit card accounts that your manager expects you to open. There are also a bunch of rules and regulations that they do not go through during training but can result to termination.

    Whether you work or commission or not, your colleagues fight over sales! Since you have goals everyone is competing. Those that have worked there longest are very territorial over their sales and end up with way too much drama. Management often does not know how to deal with these issues.

    Advice to Management

    Management should value their employee more and become more aware of what actually goes on. I personally got sexually harassed by customers and management and security failed to do anything about it.
