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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, helpful/friendly coworkers, great managers, excellent HR. There's always someone there to lend a hand when the going gets tough. Department can really feel like a family.

    Cons

    Holiday schedules can be rough, inventory is exhausting of course, pay isn't amazing, but overall really great employer. Sales goals and "top associates" charts can bring out the worst in some but most are great.

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

    Pros

    Great management team. Cheerful, upbeat atmosphere.Employee discount of 20%. Relaxed and not very many rules.

    Cons

    Hard to get required credit goals, Seem to be stuck on paying 8.00 an hour. Too many associates scheduled at one time which made it hard to make commision, Worked alot of hours for little money and time off.

    Advice to Management

    Work more with your people. Reward positive behavior, Set realistic goals for credit and sales goals.

    Pros

    Great managers, fair sales goals, easy scheduling, good working environment, good team spirit.

    Cons

    Commission based employees had a tendency to be nasty and rude, certain long term associates could be unfair/only interested in their numbers.


  4. "With an exceptional manager and team, but for PT me, selling demands far exceed the low pay."

    Pros

    Lucked out with an exceptional manager and good dept. sales team. Employee discount + promo discounts are good. Sales training sessions helpful.

    Cons

    LOW pay. Inexperienced newbies scheduled alone frustrate me and my customer at POS. Not a fan of myscheduleplus. FT'ers really hate it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers in the trenches, and adjust your operation according to their input. Value them, REALLY. They're working their a- off for your bottom line.
