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

    Pros

    Most of the employees are nice. Notice I said most.

    Cons

    long hours, no breaks, low paying for the amount of work, not being allowed to sit down even after many hours, your personal belongings go in a communal closet, the only refrigerator is in the basement so if you work on the third floor at least 15 minutes of your break are taken up searching for your food, if it's still there. Verbal abuse and little training. You are thrown out on the floor by yourself with no help available. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Fill positions. Trying to help customers in other departments while leaving your department uncovered will result in customer complaints and more

    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    Overall, I had a great experience as a seasonal employee. Everyone (senior management to associates) was welcoming. I didn't feel out of place.

    Cons

    The rate of pay could be a little higher considering the amount of work that has to be done.

    Advice to Management

    At this location, management was great. They kept the team motivated and excited. If there was anything negative said, it didn't reach the sales associate.

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

    Pros

    Great discount, & you get a chance to see all the new merchandise before it gets picked over. You get paid weekly.

    Cons

    The manager over the particular department (I was a shoe expediter) I worked in did not care that I hadn't been properly & efficiently trained. I wasn't scheduled, unless I picked up shifts from coworkers. My first day, I was just thrown to the wolves.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your new associates are thoroughly trained and are comfortable doing their job. Management needs to be more hands on with their new associates.

    Pros

    Employee discount, especially during cosmetics and fragrances friends and family; flexibility of changing schedule with other associates; overall good working relations with other associates

    Cons

    absolutely no room for advancement if you are not already in good with the sales managers and store manager. was personally told by 3 sales managers, 2 HR managers, and 2 store managers that I had unlimited potential at the company, but saw no movement from my perspective.

    Advice to Management

    be honest with your employees; they deserve that. reward the associates that are actually making the goals set by the company, in many cases exceeding those goals, which covers for those that aren't achieving.
