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

    Pros

    I cant think of any.

    Cons

    If you are a part time employee it's so hard to get hours .you have to get hours that other employees dont want. There were times I couldn't find a shift for over a week. Not ok it's just a waste to work there. You dont make money like they say

    Advice to Management

    If you dont have hours to give why keep hiring more people to be those employees who's permanent back up? Like it's a waste they switch with each other so it even more hard to get hours.

    Pros

    Discounts are nice. They are generous with hours and fairly flexible. Little perks help here and there like coupons for opening up credit cards and a little bonus for meeting monthly and annual quotas.

    Cons

    Expect WAYYY too much out of you for an $11 an hour job. You have to bend over backwards for them for almost minimum wage. Managers are always on your case about opening credit cards. God forbid you have a day without opening one up, all Hell breaks loose. I tried to explain myself when this happened to me one day, saying most people either have one already or dont want to add credit cards to their name for a measly 20% discount. I was shocked when I was told this was "unacceptable". They expect you to make people sign up by FORCE. It is a common theme for them to forget that you are one person with 2 hands. And me, working in Mens Polo, I have a lot on my plate. If im by myself, I am expected to greet customers, man the register, recover merchandise off the floors and put it all back neatly, AND make sure I am doing it with a smile on my face. This may sound impossible, but its whats expected. Why is this place a mess they ask? I dont know, maybe its because I couldnt get off the register for 6 hours straight. Countless times I have not been able to take my break that I am entitled to. And God forbid you dont take your lunch before a certain time. I could go on and on but ill stop here. Definitely dont work here unless you have to

    Advice to Management

    YOUR EMPLOYEES ARE PEOPLE NOT MACHINES

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good people, robust retail, community, volunteering opportunities

    Cons

    lots of positions are fixed and dead end without the ability to advance or evolve no matter the effort

    Advice to Management

    don’t ask for help or advice from employees on how to streamline and improve, then not consider the responses with care. anyone in a managerial to directors level need some support on how to properly advocate for employees under them. reward with opportunities and raises and compensation consideration.
