    I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great PTO package and great schedule outside of 4th quarter

    Cons

    Long hours, little appreciation for work, customers constantly harassing you in order to get discounts, every year they restructure the company and you spend about a month wondering if you will keep your job.

    I worked at Macy's for more than 9 years

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with and made some excellent friends with customers. Retail work is hard and humbling....but most of your peers make it better. For the most part, the atmosphere is relaxing except during the holidays.

    Cons

    I had one issue with upper management. She was my direct supervisor and her leadership skills were greatly lacking. She targeted me and terrorized me daily....for no reason but to bully me. It wasn't until my husband wanted to hire a lawyer, along with my documentation, that HR got involved.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire managers that are experienced, hard working, but also honest.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Discount, flexibility for students, easy

    Cons

    Little to no coverage, miss lunches and breaks if no one is around to cover or manager can't find anyone, no regard for a person's health

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, offer better hours

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

    Pros

    lots of deals, discounts, and some “flexibility”

    Cons

    You know how something looks good from the outside looking in? Well this place was exactly that. The managers are all trying to one up each other, they’re all fairly stuck up and act entitled, and there’s just managers talking about managers behind their backs. This is literally a bunch of high school bs. They also do not communicate well and then take it out on you when you’re told one thing and then another by the 4-8...

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management is to remember where the hell you are, you work at a macy’s, it’s not that serious.

    Pros

    Macy's was very helpful during a family crisis, giving me the much needed time off.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    i enjoyed working with the customers, it was the holiday season so most people were just excited for christmas and gifts, etc.

    Cons

    A lot of old timers, people that have been there for a while and much older than I was, very judgmental and weren't kind or patient to me -- a newcomer and also very young at the time.

    Advice to Management

    The more organized, the better. I was very unsure and lost most days as to where I was supposed to be and what my goal was. Also, to break up the clique-ness. Definitely ruined my experience because no one was welcoming.
