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

    Pros

    A mostly friendly staff with a pleasant atmosphere. A good job if you need a side job for seasonal work, although be prepared for some stress if it's in the winter time.

    Cons

    I had a major problem with one co-worker. Worst thing is that the coupons don't work on many, many popular items. It's kind-of a joke, really.

    Advice to Management

    Try to respect employees' time and schedules.

    Pros

    - Large well known company with defined rules and systems - Online system makes it easy to trade or offer up shifts

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

    Pros

    The overall experience of working amongst people and makeup was pleasant. There was opportunity to grow and to learn skills involving makeup.

    Cons

    A lot of the times, my coworkers would act unprofessional, being noisy and trouble-making. ALso, the hours were bad. The work place was unorganized.

    Advice to Management

    The employees need to be trained better, and treated in a more professional way. It'd be nice if they gave new employees a heads-up on upcoming events and meetings.

  10. "Sales Associate"

      Current Employee - Sales Associate in Newark, CA

      I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      One of my favorite things about Macy's is the flexible work schedule and that you may exchange shifts with anyone at anytime.

      Cons

      For the most part unorganized as far as scheduling and time management. The sales associates constantly have new tasks added to their daily routine. When ever difficult customers came in the managers gave them whatever they wanted even if it was clear they were trying to get over. This is a constant irritation because it makes the sales associate look incompetent. At anytime the associate could have given in to the customer,...

      Advice to Management
