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

    Pros

    It was ok and fun at times

    Cons

    Constant pressure to reach sales goals and to open credit accounts. Yet no appreciation when you exceed them. Low quantity of merchandise in stock. Underemployed many times and forced to cover more areas than possible for one person. It's dirty and employees are lazy. They sit around and gossip to much especially about people who do their job well. management is more concerned with politics than with how they treat the high achievers compared to the non achievers.

    Advice to Management

    Do give preferential treatment to the high achievers. That's how business succeed.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment; good pay for the work you do; friendly co-workers and managers

    Cons

    Focuses on sales goals to the exclusion of customer service; pressures associates to offer credit to customers who do not want a department store card; expects you to do the work that normally is done by multiple employees at other companies (i.e., stocking, merchandising, sales, cashiering, customer service, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the sales process and focus more on customer service and customer satisfaction and less on meeting sales metrics.
