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

    Pros

    Great hrs and schedule. I loved merchandising; staging the floor and organizing the stock rooms. Loved working mostly mornings it was great

    Cons

    The only downside was that it was no room for growth. There was no opportunity to move up or expand.

    Advice to Management

    Really take the time to know your employees individually. Everyone has different goals and needs. It would've been nice to have an employer that understood this

    For the most part they treated me fairly. Good pay for college student. As long and you makes your sales goal, give good customer service and dont have a habit of being absent you'll be fine.

    Having to open up credit applications, assistance score system was unfair, nearly impossible to get weekends off

    I am working at macys for 2yrs now,and apparently there are ups and downs just like in a family, but By the end of the day we are all macys family and I consider macys as my second home. All it takes is being patient.

    All the managers in Macys Roseville are friendly, supportive and I am blessed to have a role model. Iam looking upto to them and become a great manager like them after I graduate.
