    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work in a commissioned area you can make $15 + an hour. Part-time employees are eligible for dental & vision benefits, which are VERY good. 401K matching after 1 year, paid holidays & time & a half if you work holidays.

    Cons

    There has been a revolving door of managers.. most awful, now no more managers just supervisors, and we finally have one that's good and has been around awhile. All mangers have their pets & they can get away with any & everything, if you are not a pet, life can & is miserable.. stick it out a new manager is around the corner. There is NO opportunity for advancement, there are NO raises, when I was new I worked with someone who had been there 25 years we made the same hourly wage.

    Advice to Management

    Look at skills rather than personality for advancement, try to treat everyone fairly. When you aren't the pet it really makes coming to work difficult.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers were great, they made the job bearable.

    Cons

    horrible pay. Would not follow through on incentives. SO many call outs = long hours (always asked to stay over) . Rude/entitled customers. Understaffed. I could go on and on

    Advice to Management

    Pay raise. Hire more people, the bottom line is if you don't have enough people working, employees will keep on quitting. No one wants to work long hours with rude customers and no help.

    Pros

    The people are fun to work with. For the most part, the other more experienced employees are willing to show you the ropes.

    Cons

    The flexible scheduling seems like it would be a good thing at first, but if you aren't on the website right as the calendar is released, all of the shifts will be grabbed before you can get to them. I am a current employee with 0 shifts scheduled in the next 4 weeks. It is by no means a stable job. If you need this to pay rent, it is not the position for you!!!! Also the training is terrible. I was thrown to the wolves on my first shift. Had to close my department by myself! Had no idea if I was even doing it right.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with your employees about the scheduling issues, or fix the flexible scheduling all together. It is ridiculous that I can't find a shift to work in the next month!!! Additionally, it would be beneficial if your first full shift was actually with an experienced employee.
