    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.

    Pros

    You get a pay check once a week

    Cons

    Awful management, most employees are rude and talk poorly about their customers after they leave. No respect for the consumer or for their fellow associates. Management team was Not helpful in any way and would back stab each other to look better in front of the Store Manager. Store Manager was over critical, rude, boorish, and only gave negative recongiztion. This truly made for a hustle work environment with no future. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid working here.

    Advice to Management

    You need to revamp you training programs and reteach your managers how to manage and train. Find what's really important to people and concentrate on that.

    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.


  9. "Fun place to work!"

    I worked at Macy's (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Discounts on clothes. Good training for managers, they were always encouraging. High chance to promote with in the store. Fast pace vacation time earned. And easy to sign up through various medical plans

    Cons

    High stress. Pay is really based on credit card applications turned in, not really fair in some departments, especially those that worked in Juniors & young men’s.

    Pros

    Some training for new hires, flexible schedule,ability to pick up hours

    Cons

    Too much push for credit, only get employee discount if you open a credit account, more than likely will work weekends even if you're only available during the week, low starting pay

    Advice to Management

    Give new hires more direction. Stop pushing credit on customers it's annoying
