    The people that are the most successful at Macy's are those that are most flexible and adaptable to change.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount, being able to pick up and advertise shifts to meet ypur need.

    Cons

    PAY, managers are always on you to do something when they do nothing. Opening really late during the holiday even when there are barely customers around. HR staying open until store close.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, period. Stop telling your associates what to do like a dog and listen to them and work with them. Try to push higher up when you get the chance to voice your employees concern instead of trying to sweep everything under the rug and make things look glassy when there is a walk through.

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

    Pros

    The people on the floor make this company! I loved working with each and everyone of them. They made me want to come into work and make a difference for them each and everyday

    Cons

    HR leadership team and Management puts on a good front of getting along. There is a lot of back stabbing, lying and gossip. No one trust anyone, all at the expense of the employees which is so sad.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the hotel business, where you came from
