    I worked at Macy's part-time for 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.

  2. "Fun to work, lots to do, but very enjoyable"

    Current Employee - Jewelry Sales Associate - Seasonal in South Portland, ME
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A great employee discount! You get your discount on top of the sales that are going on in the store, which adds up. The people are great, very friendly, and will help you when you need it. A nice atmosphere. Always hiring!

    Cons

    Low pay, for decent work. The schedule is not consistent - you don't know if you'll get any work in a week or how many hours you'll get. They are trying to cut down on people's hours as well, for budget reasons (shopping malls are becoming obsolete you know, sorry :/). Training could be a whole lot better. I did not feel at all prepared on my first day being on the floor. There is a lot of burnout from the full-time employees who have been there for a long time. A serious amount of theft happens, and you can't always catch people.

    Pros

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

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in South Portland, ME

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    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.
