    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good employee discount, good pay with commission during the holidays. If you don't sale enough to make commission, you get paid by the hour.

    Cons

    You go into deficit if you don't sale enough and have to repay it later once you make commission. Returns are discounted from commission.

    Advice to Management

    Promote loyal employees instead of bringing in people from the outside who do not know the company.

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

    Pros

    I like the exposure to products and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    I was unable to continue working because I accepted another part-time job. Management was unwilling to give me 3 days a week to work both positions.

    Advice to Management

    I had a part-time job w/ Macy's for almost 4 years. During that time I worked multiple positions & varying hours. When I was unable to rely on my manager to provide me consistent hours in order to support myself I took on another part-time job for 3 days a week totaling 24 hours. Those days were Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. These days are typically the slowest days of the work week in the store. My immediate supervisor informed me they would not be able to accommodate those hours. I was only guaranteed 12 hours on random days of the week with Macy's. On top of that I wouldn't find out what my schedule for the coming week starting on Sunday would be until Thursday. I was unable to schedule job interviews, doctors appointments, because of that. As a result, my manager ceased to put me on the schedule. I was technically hired as a seasonal employee, though I was told they needed help and I was welcome to stay. I was a previous Macy's customer & will always be. I would suggest management consider the employees time and life outside of working hours.
