I have been working at Macy's full-time
Great company for longevity. Lots of benefits.
Managers are nice and helpful. 401k. Very diverse company.
Standing for long period of hours.

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!
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!

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.

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.
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.
