    I have been working at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They take care of their employees. Great benefits. Great working environment. They make you feel like family there.

    Cons

    As a new employee you are working all weekends and holidays.

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

    Pros

    Weekly pay, overtime, paid breaks. I was always kept busy so my shifts flew by. Coworkers were helpful

    Cons

    Not enough staff to get work done in timely manner

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people during the holidays so the workload is more distributed

  3. "The whole process was disorganised."

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

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Communication. I had a phone interview and was offered a back of house stocking job. When I went in for training they couldn't find my job offer. I showed them my email confirmation. They wouldn't give me the job that I was offered. Instead I was given a seasonal sales person position.

    Advice to Management

    Please organise in-house interviews with those from the national call centre. This was a seasonal job so it wasn't a deal-breaker. But in principal I don't like the bait and switch job offers.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best part of working is being able to hold items until they go to Last Act. Associate discount is the same as any Macy's card holder.

    Cons

    Underpaid, overworked, horrible management, cult like work environment and impossible metrics set.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually care about associates, pay higher wages, develop your associates, stop with the crazy metrics and stop recruiting people from other companies they will not accept how they are treated at Macy's.

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

    Pros

    No pros .... all are cons

    Cons

    Macy’s is the worst company to work . Seems like they hate their employees that are abused and understimated. Don take their medical insurance, you will need to pay thousands out your pocket before you are covered, and don’t take their short disability ... if you get hurt in the workplace you are not covered ??!!!
    Don’t believe in their commissions, they know their way around to fullish you. When they give discounts to clients , Macy’s discount it to their employees !!! Managers that most are foreigners doesn’t have a heart! They will push you and obligate you to sell their Macy’s card. They will pay you 3 dollars while the managers get over one thousand dollars per each card sold ! AND if you get hurt , forget about it ! They will work their way around to ignore you and don’t compensate you !
    Macy’s must be the most slavery company in USA. It is the people’s fault that accept tonwork under that environment ! The day that Macy’s doesn’t have NOT ONE person working in their stores , it will make them to reanalyze how they treat workers, but as long as the people continue to work under slavery they will not change !

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lie to employees , don’t abuse them , don’t steal their commission and all the other abuses you people do.

    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 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office is next to the restroom? I dunno. This job was bad.

    Cons

    They attempted to get me to sign up for a credit card on my first day, and I was told I wouldn't get store discounts unless I signed up.

    They told me they were paying under minimum wage for training. They said "$8 an hour" and minimum here is $8.25

    During the interview, we had never spoken about pay, and upon speaking with HR about it on day 1, they were inflexible and dismissive of it. I had the exact same job for someone else, and I was paid almost double with less work.

    You get trained like you're an idiot who doesn't know basic common sense.

    Advice to Management

    If someone puts they expect double digits on their application, and you don't discuss salary in the interview, it should be discussed day 1 with HR. There was a part time position available during my interview, after the pay discrepancy, that opportunity disappeared. Macy's really didn't want me if they weren't willing to add an extra 50 cents or so to the pay for negotiations sake, or let me switch to part time, but clearly they don't want it.
