    Pros

    Everything...work/life balance, being able to work from home, working 9-5, summer fridays leaving at 1, great people to work with all young and fun and chill

    Cons

    SALARY! Especially if you graduate with a degree other than merchandising. If you're coming from a merch related degree, it's actually average to above average pay. But with any other degree this is the only con by far

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

    Pros

    Great hrs and schedule. I loved merchandising; staging the floor and organizing the stock rooms. Loved working mostly mornings it was great

    Cons

    The only downside was that it was no room for growth. There was no opportunity to move up or expand.

    Advice to Management

    Really take the time to know your employees individually. Everyone has different goals and needs. It would've been nice to have an employer that understood this

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were awesome. Management worked with you, as far as hours and time off.

    Cons

    The pay could of been better. Moves and projects needed to be planned better. Hours at times were very long, to make up for bad planning.

    Advice to Management

    Review floor moves before moving merchandise to make sure it fits. Would save a lot of wasted time and energy.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are average, discounts are nothing to be wowed by.

    Cons

    management doesn’t care if you have a life. Expect to work long hours getting paid like a sales associate but doing work of a construction worker, problems using benefits you’ve earned over the years because of management.
