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

    Pros

    Although the position that I held was temporary, my experience with the company was amazing and I was treated with great respect by my co-workers. Management was very transparent and there was a perfect balance of communication between myself and the managers. The people with who I worked with were extremely nice and easy to talk to, plus we had a luncheon or some sort of event involving food at least once a month which was of course great. I also had great training, despite my lead being several states away and had to teach me via Skype. I would highly recommend that if you're interested in working in corporate for a big company, Macy's is the place!

    Cons

    I wish there was some wiggle room in negotiating for a slightly higher salary, but mostly I just wish there had been an open opportunity for me to become full-time! Beside those two personal issues of mine this company is great!

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Decent benefits
    -Disaster pay and payed time off
    -Opportunity for job advancement
    -You are constantly active
    - For the most part, very friendly staff
    -Management is very centered

    Cons

    -You are expected to pick up the slack
    -Finishing your work doesn't necessarily mean taking it easy for the rest of the day.
    -There's an understanding to take your time doing your work or work more than you had to.
    -Required skills for the position very from store to store
    - Expect to go and help other stores
    - Lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Understand what your responsibilities are and make clear and precise goals and expectations of your employees. Give clear direction of the daily tasks and duties of every employee and make extra time for mistakes, because they occur very frequently. Communication with the rest of the team is very important , but mostly forgotten.

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

    Pros

    My time at Macy's was fine. The pay was about $9/hr plus a commission component. It averaged to about $12-$13/hr. This was only for work before I went off to school, but the management is there to help you. Push the store credit cards, and you'll be recognized endlessly just like how I was.

    Cons

    The type of customers that enter range from affluent all the way to trying to save pennies on the dollar if they can. These are things however that you simply cannot control.
