    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved the people, the excitement in our department....a real team to meet goals ,

    Schedules were controlled, I was told flexible schedule but rarely got requested days off that conflicted with my day job.

    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.
