    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Most of the associates are good people that put up with a lot. I loved working with a diverse group of people. Helping customers was one of my favorite parts of my job.

    Cons

    Executives are completely out-of-touch with reality. Sales goals are impossible to meet. The pay is horrendous! Be prepared to work a lot and still not able to pay your bills.

    Advice to Management

    Your associates are people, not a sales or credit goal. The store manager should NEVER talk badly about their associates. Managers should know more about Macy's policies than the associates. Why do you not promote from within?

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling is all that I can think of.

    Cons

    No fair wages, favoritism, nepotism, bullying,etc

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old outdated management who still use scare tactics to get results amongst other things. You know it’s bad when your coworker comes in and is told to interview for their next job without notice.

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Flexible shifts allow for a second job

    Cons

    Low pay, rude management, and associates given a sales goal every shift which is unreasonable. The sales goal leads to associates neglecting basic customer service functions and hovering at registers to get the sale. These sales goals do not lead to any sort of commission or raise in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Respect would be a beginning

    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great flexible schedule (add shifts, drop shifts, trade shifts) Diverse schedule since you can pick up shifts in many different areas

    Cons

    Sales associates have the longest list of daily duties (with the lowest pay usually) Sales goals are high and usually they require you to get at least 125% of daily goal Competitive work environment without money incentive Rated based on number of credit accounts, sales goal, and client list on a monthly basis (and what your raises or chance of advancement in the company are based on) Usually only one person per an area...

    Advice to Management

    It can feel high pressure, but management is not the best at how they deliver their direction or requests. In my experience with two different stores in about 3 years of working with the company, the managers are probably some of the rudest when it comes to talking to associates. Also more physical assistance and verbal awareness would go further with making Macy's a more comfortable environment to work in. Maybe start...

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The scheduling flexibility. Being able to create your own schedule and pick up hours online. The training process was also great. Everything was well explained on the training videos such as the POS training.

    Cons

    Managers are rarely to never visible to the employees. There are no set expectations with the regular employees except for reaching a sales goal (which is not that accurate because some can just stay in the register the whole shift and easily achieve it) and opening a macy's card. Therefore, the employees doesnt have a set level of accountability and pretty much do whatever they wish to do.

    Advice to Management

    Working in a different retail company for more the 7 years as a supervisor has made compare what this company do differently than my previous job. The training was great and the scheduling flexibility is more than awesome. One thing I can suggest is to maybe change the structure of the management. As I said awhile ago, there are too many managers but they are rarely on the salesfloor to atleast follow up and set up expectations...
