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

    Pros

    Macy's has many opportunities for anyone who wants to work hard in customer service. As a sales associate I love who I work with and what I do. The money is not great but with commission and you have to really sell to make commission, its not bad! If you do your job you are left alone. Don't make waves!

    Cons

    Standing all day. Restrooms are usually dirty, lunch room is depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Stores are old and dirty.

    Pros

    Everyone works in team. The staff is quiet friendly, energetic and full of spirit. Supervisor always work with your schedule

    It can get pretty hectic there, especially during holidays and big sales. The line can be very long and not enough employee to cover the floor at time

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

    Pros

    Co workers were cool. Only good thing I remember. Dope people.

    Cons

    Felt pretty disorganized. I got thrown around to different sections. Had a shift extended without even being consulted about it first, so when I tried clocking out, I wasn't able to.

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

    Pros

    My boss was very hands-off when it came to the day to day tasks. It gave me a chance to prove myself as a sales person. At one point, I I made a ton of friends within the store.

    Cons

    The point system for attendance was terrible! There was a mix up on what points I actually had which led me to be fired. Because my boss did not play favorites, she was unwilling to pull any strings to help me keep my job. Two years later, myself and nearly 6 other people from my team were fired (we were not seasonal employees).

    Advice to Management

    The training process was terrible. I spent nearly 15 hours in front of a computer as it had a terrible time loading the training software. I was essentially cut 'short' from that training and put onto the floor two days later with another new employee. Overall, train in the most productive and encouraging environment as possible!
