    Pros

    You get 3 percent commission plus an hourly rate of 9 an hour so it's pretty nice. Around Christmas your paycheck will double due to commission.

    Cons

    You have to have a Macys credit card in order to get the 20 percent off associate discount. They press you hard to get customers to open up credit cards but you are rewarded in Macys money when they open one.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication would be nice

    Pros

    They offer a 20% Discount and flexible hours for part time work. Average pay. It's about an average part time job

    Cons

    No benefits for part time, usually understaffed, not too bad other than that. Basic part time job. Make you have a Macy's credit card to get your discount

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. Good system for sick days. They don't drug test so they will seriously hire anyone with a pulse.

    Cons

    They forced people to work black Friday and thanksgiving this year, so eventually holidays won't exist. I used think macys was fancy, but the quality has gone way down in an attempt to get more business. Management only cares about credit goals. Managers also only care about "customer is always right " and will not stand behind their employees when enforcing rules. For example if a customer wants to use a coupon on something not eligible and it clearly says so on the coupon, if the customer argues the management will just say "give it time them" instead of backing The employee.

    Advice to Management

    Your "just give it to them" policy is turning your customers into the worst types of people. We had a customer who would demand management every time she purchased anything because she knew they would let her use coupons on ineligible things. One day management wasn't there to approve it and she literally cried at the counter and told us she was calling corporate to have us all fired.
