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

    Pros

    Great working environment early in the morning! I worked at 4 am on the signing team and everyone I worked with was wide awake and ready for the day! It made the job fun and easy. Also, great benefits as far as winning "Macy Money" every month for working hard. If you pool your discount, "Macy Money" and sales together, you can really get awesome deals!

    Cons

    Pay wasn't the best but it was ok for the work we did. Health benefits could have ben better too but not the worst I've had.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, not much to add here.

    Pros

    They have flexible scheduling.
    It a relatively easy job.
    You get a 20% employee discount.

    Cons

    Low wage
    Early morning and overnights
    Limited hours
    They had a lot of work that needed to be done, but couldn't afford to pay enough people to do it, so the same three people were working 15 hour shifts.

    Pros

    the discount is great except they make you open a credit card to receive it with the hopes you will use your entire paycheck in the store.

    Cons

    Treat you like your uneducated and frequently talk down to you as if it is your first job experience. Must like sales.

    Advice to Management

    Notice talent

    Pros

    Discount was good.
    Moving up was good.

    Cons

    Manger ignored numerous problems.
    Was once threatened by a customer and they did nothing but punish me even though I was nice all the way through the transaction.
    During the Holidays there was not enough coverage for my area and was left with angry Christmas Shoppers.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your whole management team. They care about NO ONE and NOTHING but the dollar signs.
    Store will eventually fail.
