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

    Pros

    Work is relatively simple and easy to grow accustomed to. Managers are helpful when guidance or extra assistance is required. Other employees were friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The company required employees to push the company's rewards card on customers, hinting that my job could be at stake if I didn't get people to sign up. This makes long term work for the company seem untenable, and would agitate customers who want their transactions to be quick.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount, great coworkers, flexibility in scheduling, opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Heartless, ‘holier than thou’ managers, trashy and inconsiderate customers, very understaffed, expected to recover 3-4 different departments alone, repetitive blaring music, some coworkers are lazy and put in minimal effort, managers love to scapegoat and reward bad customer behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees poorly, hire more associates to recover and ring more efficiently when busy, listen to and value what associates have to say, and stand up for your employees instead of discrediting and disregarding them.
