    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    The company is extremely invested in your development and follows through with progression plans. I learned and grew so much thanks to their commitment to my development. You are challenged to use innovation to train and motivate sales associates as well as build incremental sales.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive with other retailers of the same magnitude. Customer service can be very draining and consistently trying to motivate potential lazy associates who don't take duties within a retail job seriously gets old fast.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment not stuffy, Huge Call Center,and Cafeteria. Most of the Specialists are helpful. Facilitator knowledgeable & friendly

    Cons

    Some of the Specialists and Leads you call for help are rude and if you work late shift seems have to park really far out in the boonies.

    Advice to Management

    Feel that some Leads need to be trained more as when I ask questions my Lead doesn't seem to know the answers and directs me to seek advice from specialist line. As a Lead I personally feel they should be able to answer any work related questions

    Pros

    Great people, believe in the concept of teams and working hard. Never saw an issue is recognition of success and there are plenty of challenges to help you keep growing in the business.

    Cons

    Benefits are not that great. Sometimes they play favorites, session planning seems to be a topic of an issue here. They can really work on this more.

    Advice to Management

    Look for your diamonds in the rough because those are your future leaders of the company.
