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

    Pros

    Higher wages compared to other cosmetic retailers, flexible breaks

    Cons

    Quarterly layoffs, nepotism, poor management, unprofessionalism, sexual harassment, overall negativity, no set standard for cosmetic consultations, minimal training

    Advice to Management

    I don’t even know where to begin. This was once a fair, unbiased, positive environment to work in. Start by evaluating employees on their job performance & how much they do for the department, not by the number of credit cards they can open for raises.

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

    Pros

    Both Team and Individual-based. Start early, end early.

    Cons

    Have to start early, not as creative as it could be. Everything is pretty much written out to what you need to have. It's very physical.

    Advice to Management

    Have more one on one time with new employees. Don't rely on just the people who work below you.

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

    Pros

    Macy's was my first job and I would recommend. Excellent management, great discounts, and usually great coworkers (besides holiday associates).

    Cons

    Some of the downsides I experienced was being asked last minute to come in or being scheduled last minute without my knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your employee appreciation events, they do help.

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

    Pros

    Employee discount, being able to pick up and advertise shifts to meet ypur need.

    Cons

    PAY, managers are always on you to do something when they do nothing. Opening really late during the holiday even when there are barely customers around. HR staying open until store close.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, period. Stop telling your associates what to do like a dog and listen to them and work with them. Try to push higher up when you get the chance to voice your employees concern instead of trying to sweep everything under the rug and make things look glassy when there is a walk through.

    Great opportunity to grow communication and presentation skills. Lots of responsibility given early on.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement in stores.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the concerns.
