    I have been working at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    West County store is close to home. Most of the employees are very pleasant. Casual clothes to wear at work, along with comfy shoes.

    Cons

    There is no structure, communication, or culture. The local stores also do not have professional HR representatives. You are supposed to contact HR through the website via phone, chat or email inquiry. When you have a healthy culture, EVERYTHING ELSE falls into place with success. Look at all of the top workplaces/employers of choice companies across the U.S, and you will see that the ratings/feedback always mention...

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The people were great about making it a fun atmosphere. But when it mattered, everyone buckled down to do quality work.

    Cons

    No opportunity for promotion. You could move up in title or rank in your own department, but would couldn’t move around or leave new skills. You were stuck doing the exact thing you were hired for until you quit.

    Advice to Management

    “We’ve always done it this way” is a not a good reason to keep doing it that way if a better solution is available.

    Human Resource is not very helpful Extremely rude and demanding customers Long hours You have to work a long time to be able to get paid time off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so uptight all the time Learn how to take a break from your job Agree with associate instead of customer Don't get angry if associate does something wrong instead teach them

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the dynamic personalities. You learn the true meaning of handling difficult situations through several customer service experiences and professional relationships. The VPSMs are truly committed to the company and believe in its vision. I was with the company for 8+ years and never saw a VPSM leave the company for another competitor.

    Cons

    There is little room for a work-life balance; some people are able to grow their families, but it is rather difficult for the salaried executives.

    Advice to Management

    Create a path for all to grow in that could potentially stray from the SS to SM to MTM, etc... path. It's not realistic for all paths in management and makes it difficult for SMs to feel as though they could potentially grow past the store level to the corporate level.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job gives you an opportunity to meet many new people. You get a discount on merchandise and if you're lucky.

    Cons

    It does not pay well at all. Sometimes management can be awful and when you need to be off on vacation they don't always give it to you.

    Advice to Management

    Praise good behavior more.
