    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.
