    Hours are flexible and managers are willing to work around your schedule. Coworkers were friendly and helpful. Employees get a nice discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    Short staffed once COVID hit, however, more employees were being hired when I left.

    Pros

    Decent discount, flexible WFH policy even before pandemic

    Cons

    They are not transparent about being promoted here. You have to take a test from the merchandise assistant level in order to be promoted. You have to be recommended by your manager to take this test although the tests are rarely available & they only allow a small amount of people to take it from each area. They constantly push the test back with no firm date. The pay is low & raises are insulting. I made no more than $2k in raises is my 3 years there. Furloughed during pandemic with no idea of when the furlough would end or if we’d be brought back. They furloughed the majority of the work force during lockdown & when they brought us back they laid off the employees that were considered “essential” & worked through the furlough!! They do layoffs often & there is no rhyme or reason as to who will be laid off. It’s very scary to feel like at any moment there might be a layoff at all levels.

    Good pre-Covid, not sure about now

    Pros

    1. If you like detail oriented & marketing type jobs this is nice. It's not just putting clothes on racks. It's coordinating price, brand, style, visual appeal, etc. 2. Collaboration experience - working with brand vendors, sales managers, visual department, signs department to create a visually appealing 3. If you have a good manager and team it can be very fun and worthwhile.

    Cons

    1. Customers - they can be rude and VERY difficult to deal with, you have to have patience and be able to take verbal beatings over nothing. 2. If you're like me and like organization the stock rooms will drive you insane. 3. Since Covid apparently they've minimized merchandiser to almost nothing, I had 3 departments in my time (2 being my main) and even then it could be stressful most days to get everything done and organized. I can only imagine now having 6+ departments...

    Pros

    Basically just coworkers, they’re the best.

    Cons

    No manager for over a year. They end up taking hours and giving it to a different Macy’s then ask is you want to work more hours to go to the one added hours too. If you
