    Pros

    Family type environment. Everyone is friendly. You weren't micro managed. Employee discounts.

    Cons

    Some tedious reports that didn't have to be done weekly. Old equipment needs to replaced with more current to streamline operations.

    I worked at Macy's full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    the people and the culture in the stores is amazing

    Cons

    I have never worked at a company where there is absolutely no job security. They are constantly laying off employees. I made it thru the 2020 annual layoffs to be laid off due to covid.

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good discount, usually good sense of teamwork amongst Sales Managers and selling Supervisors. MTMs and OPS typically try and treat group poorly (I was very tenured with company and worked in 4 stores for a lot of years-left on my own without being reduced, so not bitter). You will learn good retail standards working for a Macy’s.

    Cons

    Long hours, especially during holidays. Lots of weekend obligations and late nights. With fewer managers in stores over the years, less people to switch with. Went to teams and Store Managers started wanting you to switch only with your team which literally was 1-2 people, so while they opened schedules greatly for associates, continued to beat managers down with schedule. Only viewed as promotable if you agree to move, and that could mean cross country. I was a highly awarded manager, trained numerous managers, but would have never been considered for a store manager, as they tend to have a career path you must follow. Sales Manager, MTM, District Team, then possibly Asst Store Manager/Ops and then your own store, but the problem is, jobs were constantly being lost, so no one really ever had a chance to shine. Regional Team visits could be brutal...I was in stores big enough to get major corporate visits and observing the way very senior management spoke to their subordinates was really inappropriate.
