    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some coworkers were very sweet, and the customers were usually nice

    Cons

    Management only cares about themselves, constantly asked to come in on days off or stay late/come in early. Understaffed 99% of the time, very stressful when it gets busy. Some employees liked having control as if they were managers. No room for a raise unless you’ve worked there a long time as part time and become a floor manager. Low pay for the amount of work. They don’t give you an employee discount straight out, you have to get a credit or prepaid card. Constantly pressured to get another Macy’s card.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great retail hours if you are looking for part-time evening and weekends! Discount is very nice as well as the people you work with. The break room provides a great place to decompress.

    Cons

    You must wear shoes with insoles as you will be constantly busy.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great management staff that is accommodating, kind and helpful. Flexible hours. Employee discount is always a good thing (not for my checkbook, haha). Honestly, it's been a good experience for a part time job.

    Cons

    Nothing thus far, I like working here

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Discount, contests, nice co-workers, Starbucks and beautiful store.

    Cons

    Pay is low, even if you have a degree and years of retail experience. Thanksgiving was always ruined by going to work right after dinner. Change managers like underwear.

    I worked at Macy's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers for the most part. Unfortunately the department into which I was hired paid commission so there was a surprising amount of back-biting and hovering. I also enjoyed contact with the public/customers most of the time; every once in a while, of course, you have to deal with someone who's either having a bad day or just genuinely seems to enjoy driving other people to the verge of tears.

    Cons

    Horrible scheduling process in which you sit around waiting for the stroke of midnight on Sunday night and then everyone from your department logs on from their homes; hours are allotted by first-come/first-serve, so if you're late logging in or just not very adept at using the scheduling app, you get locked out in a hurry. It was a nightmare. It's also not a lot of fun standing for 8 hours at a time on a hard floor. Retail's not for babies. Management for my dept was fine; she was brusque but fair. HR, upper management were sort of No Man's Land. I used to love Macy's . . . and then I worked there.
