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

    Pros

    Good part-time benefits( dental & vision ), you can opt in for others at a very reduced cost, life insurance, disability. 401K with employer match. Paid holidays after 1 year + time & a half. You accrue other paid holidays for the number of hours you work. Flexible schedule to a point you can trade and advertise shifts but you have to be in a department withe enough employees to make that possible. I work in a department with very few employees , so its almost impossible to change schedule. Its minimum wage but you add in the benefits & if you happen to make it into a commission department, you can make $15-$17 an hour.

    Cons

    For the most part the only break you get is for lunch, no 15 minute breaks. So its hard on the feet & back. There is very little if no opportunity for advancement,managers are chosen by popularity rather than by experience & skills. Its a little like a sorority house with the cute & popular girls getting all the perks.
    Customers can be very rude & demanding & if they don't get their way they scream for a manager & managers always cave & NEVER support the associate. So as an associate when the customer volume escalates we have learned just give them what they ask for because management is going to give it to them anyway & on top of it reward their bad behavior with a $25 gift card.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone is a barbie & skill & experience come in many packages. Support your associates, nothing makes you feel lower than low than when you say no to a customer & a manager comes along and says yes. We can enjoy being an employee without all the ra-ra and songs & rallies . Don't make morning rallies mandatory. Improve communication about changes, promos and discounts .

    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.
