    Pros

    Job overall is pretty decent. Manager was pretty great imo. Flexible hours if needed. Great coworkers to be had at macy,s.

    Cons

    Hot in summer cold in winter. HR is pretty horrible in my opinion. Can do a simple transfer in a timely manner without lying about sending it in the first place.

    I worked at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to move around departments (except commissioned departments).

    Cons

    Inflexible work schedule after giving up your own time to help management out. Be careful; nobody has your back. Terminations are handed out like candy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your associates like third-world refugees. They need to eat, sleep, and take care of their families with low-wages. Show some respect!

    Enjoying all my customer's and entertaining new customer's. Working as a team player to achieve all of our store goals. Fufillment our online shopper's: assisting them with their purchases. Assisting the marketing and Vendor teams. Assisting all of my fellow crew and manager's with projects. Assisting with Year end Inventory.

    Cons

    Shifts that are at varying times. Computer's database that sometimes is not working right to allow us to change shifts, to swap shifts or take a vacation.

    We need more Crew help thru out the day and night to assist us in all the varying functions on the floor and with Customer's.

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

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers; meet a variety of people; great sales; good associate discount.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible (minimum wage); never 40 hours a week...except Christmas. Schedule constantly changes. They only keep bare minimum permanent associates. Micromanage and pressure you to open credit reports.; if you do so you receive $1.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micromanaging; hire more permanent associates; raise wages. Your profits went up record levels, your stock went up 5%, you received almost a billion dollars from the tax cut. Share your wealth with your associates and you won't have to close anymore stores (21 this year).
