    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.

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

    Pros

    Macy's carries a lot of nice products and I enjoyed learning about the inventory. It was also a good experience to work for such a large company.

    Cons

    Poor management (at least at my store), disorganization, lack of assistance available while training, lack of employees on the floor at most times. Also, the company does not seem to be doing too well in general.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management really needs to step up more and show more concern for the departments which they are managing. It is difficult for sales associates to feel motivated to do a good job when managers do not seem to be.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great discount. Flexible hours and time off.

    Cons

    Working on holidays, especially since they keep opening earlier and earlier. Training system isn't great, you are kind of thrown in there. They seem to only advance those who play the game then those who are right for the job. There is so much red tape that it's hard to get things done. Also It's like talking to a wall when talking to corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more to the people who are in the trenches actually dealing with the customers.

    Pros

    There are none. Quitting or getting fired is a blessing.

    Cons

    Macy's recruited me from a leased area in cosmetics to come run a new area in the store. When the time came- someone came back from a medical leave and they gave the job to her. They then tried to take two dollars away from my hourly salary. I endured harassment in this store and absolutely nothing was done about it. A couple employees after me experience the same thing and this person finally got fired. They hire people who have never seen a lipstick in their life. They also tell lots of lies to cover up their tracks.

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

    Pros

    Discount. Stores are fun to work in. Ability to work independently and make an impact in department you work in.
    Would work again.

    Cons

    None. I enjoyed my experience. I can't come up with any negatives during my tenure with company. Some people enjoy the work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making the stores a priority.
