    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 full-time

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. A good choice for a temporary job.

    Cons

    Benefits are impossible to get. Pay raises and opportunities to advance may as well be nonexistent. Other sales associates will act antisocial and cower behind the register on their phones, forcing you to circle the floor and assist customers alone. Coworkers tend to be rude, catty, unwilling to work as a team, racist and homophobic. HR is a joke. Managers cannot get along. You get berated and threatened if you do not sell enough Macy's credit cards. Managers will try to call you in on your only off day per week, every week. Certain departments are obviously favored by the administration over others. Communication between managers is nonexistent leading schedules to become jumbled and incorrect. Managers will blame their miscommunication issues on their associates. Very poor hours, especially if you are unable to work early mornings.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate. Stop blaming everything on your subordinates and examine your actions first.

    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.
