    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -Decent benefits -Disaster pay and payed time off -Opportunity for job advancement -You are constantly active - For the most part, very friendly staff -Management is very centered

    Cons

    -You are expected to pick up the slack -Finishing your work doesn't necessarily mean taking it easy for the rest of the day. -There's an understanding to take your time doing your work or work more than you had to. -Required skills for the position very from store to store - Expect to go and help other stores - Lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Understand what your responsibilities are and make clear and precise goals and expectations of your employees. Give clear direction of the daily tasks and duties of every employee and make extra time for mistakes, because they occur very frequently. Communication with the rest of the team is very important , but mostly forgotten.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I interned at Macy's for the summer at Herald Square, NYC. It was a great experience. Macy's paired you up with one of their associates in order to assign you to a personal mentor. You learn a lot of hands-on work. You also get instant friends because the intern class that they welcome in is comprised of 100 people

    Cons

    Some days are slow but it was to be expected.
