    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

    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.

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

    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.
