    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.

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

    Pros

    They offer flexible scheduling, perfect for college students like myself who just want some extra cash.

    Cons

    You don’t get a lot of hours. If you want to work more you have to pick up shifts which may not always work with your schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the workers in mind. Sometimes we get a lot of stuff thrown on us that isn’t part of our job duties.

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

    Pros

    Not something that no one can do just need to be fast and quick because you will have a lot of customers waiting for you

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to find online orders for customers and that can be toughwhat do you need to make sure the order is ready and it didn't get canceled

    Advice to Management

    I wish customers could make sure the order is ready to pick up before they come to the store

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Routine oriented, People and Customers are fun to work with. Pushing Sales is not easy but if you are in a big store with foot traffic it's simple.

    Cons

    Getting hours during the slow time of the year

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Follow the policies you instill in your team.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good team ethic, and flexible hours. I had a great manager that allowed me to change my hours if I didn’t like what I was working, or needed to take my child to dr etc.

    Cons

    Pay was low, but commissions made up for it. The more you sell, the more your check was. If you didn’t meet the monthly quota, you were put on a “list” and would be told to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the store I worked for was great, they always looked out for each person. It was a great experience.
