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

    Pros

    There really are not pros. The store is a union store however everyone makes min wage. Union does nothing for you.

    Cons

    They do not ask you to stay to work they tell you to stay.
    If you are commission be careful because they will cheat you.
    Managers do very little except sit in the office. When you call them they act like it is a disturbance to their office time. Any information is always incorrect. You have to call the home office to get the right information. The store is dirty and they are so short staffed that you cannot take care of the customer. They will then reprimand you because customers are upset however the root is not having enough staff.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be out on the selling floor. Managers need to know the department that they manage. Supervisors are afraid of upper management and so they never follow through with anything because they do not want to put their job in jeopardy.

    I worked at Macy's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment. Great experience working on Holiday setup. The visual manager had given enough flexibility to manage the tasks in the time frame.

    Cons

    The company Only hires seasonally for the holidays. The setup took only one month to complete. There should be more scope for seasonal projects round the year.

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

    Pros

    None pros of working at macys

    Cons

    The company is turning into a joke they could care less about the wellbeing of their employees. If you would like having fun entering while working forget about it.

    Advice to Management

    Just close down the company is a joke no wonder nordstrom is doing much better.

    I have been working at Macy's (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible Schedule
    - Good work environment

    Cons

    - Low pay for all the tasks they want you to do.
    - Dysfunctional management.
    - Return policy

    Advice to Management

    I think management should put their employees first sometimes. They literally take the phrase "the customer is always right" to heart when that is not always the case. Employees can be made to look stupid in front of the customer.

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

    Pros

    Self scheduling was always great ,also getting paid every week.

    Cons

    The training process could've been better.

    Advice to Management

    Please just work on the training. Maybe it could be longer and with actual customers, so that new employees aren't just thrown out on the floor and clueless.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, flexible work schedule, achievable goals and expectations, nice incentive for opening credit cards.

    Cons

    We have a lot of coupon offers, but most don't work on most items and that is ALL almost every customer cares about.

    They recognize who does the most work and will use these people to do any and everything while other employees get to stand behind the register and get asked to do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication among one another.
