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

    Pros

    They offer 20% employee discount plus extra discount days and you qualify for a Macy's store account as an employee which can give you additional back door discounts

    Cons

    The store I worked at did not have enough staff coverage and it often left you without breaks and necessary time to take care of personal matters. Lunch coverage was always difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more help so that people are not left understaffed.

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

    Pros

    Macy's has an interesting vibe. The work is difficult and fast-paced which makes for strong, homogenous groups of people who team up to solve problems. Upper management is extremely approachable and willing to work with employees at all levels to create solutions.

    Cons

    Lower management turnover was extremely quick while I worked there. This resulted in often being placed under less-than-competent leads/managers (as they were being trained), which dramatically hurt productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes lower-level employees which have been working an area for a long time can optimize productivity better than a manager who is never involved in the specific area. Don't form cliques with your managerial associates, but rather, spend more time in discussions with those actually doing the work.

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

    Pros

    Very easy and not terribly demanding, plus they pay slightly above minimum wage which was nice

    Cons

    The location I worked at was constantly understaffed, and the customers would occasionally get frustrated with me for not being able to find me. It's understandable, bit at the same time maybe they should have more than one person in an area to avoid this issue. Also, the push credit SO MUCH. I didn't care for it and disliked how much they wanted us to push it on the customers

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and stop complaining employees aren't doing their job when you're understaffed constantly. Also, relax with the stupid credit!

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

    Pros

    The best part about Macey's was the weekly paycheck and calling in sick was super easy, you didn't have to talk to anyone, you did it on the computer.

    Cons

    Sales associates would steal your customers that were planning on signing up for a credit card. Loss prevention would stalk you if you wanted to shop.

    Advice to Management

    Hire associates whom you can trust. Take some action on sales associates who are dishonest and terminate them. The job force shouldn't put up with that.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee discount and the people are mostly cool to work with.

    Cons

    The customers think that it's like walmart or a swap meet. You can be branded quick against advancement.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people and great enthusiasm for the job. If you want to learn and live fashion merchandising, Macy's is a great place to go.

    Cons

    Very long hours in the District Planner role. Lot's of uncertainty about future positions and strategies. 3 rounds of layoffs in 2 years. Very hard to keep a family life in check. Most of my co-workers were un-married, young career professionals who didn't mind the very late hours.

    Advice to Management

    Provide flex-time or some way of balancing the extreme hours needed on store-visit days, travel-days and in Q3/Q4

    help out more don't forget about certain departments
