    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.

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

    Pros

    Good employee discount and sales.

    Cons

    Demoralizing corporate culture, too much pressure to open credit accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Customers return to a store because of value, quality of merchandise and customer service - not because they have a credit card with the store. Stop emphasizing this so much.

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

    Pros

    Online scheduling works allows one to swap, advertise or have someone cover a shift unable to work. No need to talk to a manager. Works great for people with school aged kids.

    Cons

    Retail equals working on holidays but again Insight allows one to manage their own schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Stay engaged, listen and act quickly.

    Pros

    Autonomy in most decisions about my product on the sales floor. Coworkers were great and most management was supportive.

    Cons

    Low pay for what you are asked to do. Only way to move up is through sales management, which is not what everyone is looking for!

    Advice to Management

    Know your employees and be supportive of their concerns.
