    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pros in my experience are commission, the hours are sometimes flexible, great co-workers, nice customers and discounts. I worked in the women's shoes department and you will be successful there if you sell a lot, go out to the floor, talk to customers, do a lot of presales, open credit accounts and stay ahead of returns. If you manage to sell 50% or more of your sales goal, you will get really good commission if you do any less, it will be mostly just your base pay plus very little commission. If you work holidays and over time you'll get goo money as well, because you will get paid overtime, double time, holiday pay and you can ask for non productive hours sometimes so it won't affect your commission.

    Cons

    The cons is that you're very limited to go up the ladder and even if you do, money wise it won't be worth it. I believe you'll earn more as a commissioned sales associate than having a management position. If you're part time you do not get to pick your shifts until Sunday I think it was. full time associates can pick theirs on Friday if I remember correctly. That means you will be left with all the evening, late shifts and unless you have a long time working there or a very good excuse, you will have to work it. The pay on slow, very slow days is bad, you'll make the very minimum, no commission at all, because there will be a lot of sales associates and few customers.

    I worked at Macy's for less than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is excellent. They give you half of every Friday off. Very stable environment. They're not going to flame out like a start-up might.

    Cons

    Part of a stultifying corporation, with plenty of bureaucracy and politics to slog your way through. Very erratic levels of competence. There are a few stars, but lots of mediocre (and worse) players.

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

    Pros

    Make sure you already have a Macy's credit card if you plan on using the employee discount during a holiday seasonal job. My card took too long to arrive and by then the holidays were over (and so was the employee discount).

    Cons

    Thrown onto floor with zero training with stressed out holiday shoppers. Was told it was commission yet shocked to see the smallest puny paycheck I ever received after working hard to bring in huge sales. Coworkers rude and offer no help to their coworkers but were probably just stressed since retail jobs during Christmas is so difficult. Also kept getting placed in perfume section despite being a licensed cosmetologist and interviewed for a Benefit cosmetics counter. Went home feeling sick every night from inhaling perfume fumes.
