    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good pay for employees

    Cons

    People fighting over sales and clients

    Advice to Management

    Management was good. You would just expect adults to act accordingly with or without management. So I won't blame managers for that. But, communication and listening to your employees as we listen to you is a start for a good manager/employee relationship.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, friendly, helpful, and cooperative coworkers, on top of a welcoming professional environment are all factors that make Macy's a good place to work.

    Cons

    If you dislike being mobile and proactive, the holidays aren't going to be much fun. If you like to stay on your toes and being around lots of activity, it'll be entertaining.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the schedules were more consistent, I found myself working 30-40+ hours some weeks. I acceded to the extra hours and retail tends to be chaotic so I can't really complain too much.

    I have been working at Macy's as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Do not trust these dishonest people.

    Cons

    Macy's events contacted my company to create custom DIY Flower Corsage and Boutonniere Kits. This included custom made photographs, signage, custom cut ribbon, etc. They decided upon delivery that they did not want it and did not pay us for it. We have lost many hundreds of dollars. They do not do business in good faith and are not honest people. Be careful with working with Macy's and be sure to get payment up front.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and do business in good faith.

    I worked at Macy's as a contractor

    Pros

    They have a well-trained staff to train new members who join the company.

    Cons

    The time I spent the job was somewhat disconcerting. I would have preferred it to last a longer time.

    Flexible hours and very rarely early mornings

    Cons

    Poor management - pushing Macys credit cards - doesn't care about their associates

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    very flexible with hours that you are available, you get to put your availability

    Cons

    every time i go in i have to look for someone to tell me where to go, there is not list or organized way to know. Also don't get insurance unless you make certain amount of hours per week

    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing I liked about working at Macy’s was the pay. I made commission there which was great I made some good money there. I met a couple of good people there as well who were patient with me while I was still in training. Thank you ,Marvin, Naghem, Nawal, Randolph and George.

    Cons

    The manager I had was huge pain. I honestly couldn’t stand him, it felt like he was always out to get me some how. He would usually make me want to quit. But the assistant manager was down to earth and seemed to actually care about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don just throw us on the floor after we watch thanks dreaded videos. We need hands on experience not perfect case sceneries you twats. That’s how I got suspended for scanning a fraudulent coupon with out knowing ( my mistake ) but still there were no managers on the floor for me to go to.

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

    Pros

    Macy's is RICH with tradition and heritage which makes you feel very proud to be a member of an American Icon. Macy's has a lot of power and weight in the industry which makes it fun to do your job. Macy's understands how important it is to truly focus on the customer and make "Magic" with everything you do. It isn't all about numbers, its about positive customer experiences which ultimately lead to results.

    Cons

    Like any huge company, there are redundancies with jobs, which makes it difficult to get an answer to a problem or question. Although Macy's tries to move faster, due to the companies size, we often miss business opportunities that smaller competitors act quicker on. Macy's size and power is its greatest strength but also its greatest weakness.

    Advice to Management

    Macy's is a truly fun company to work for however Macy's executives (not all) have difficulty embracing change, especially tenured members, making it difficult to innovate.
