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

    Pros

    Macys money: you get macys money whenever you open a credit account or when you get customers to sign up for macys special events.

    Backdoor Discounts: Ocassionally macys will give employees a extra 10-30% off merchandice on top of the standing 20%

    Cons

    Management is all jubbled. Everyone just follows the leader, and the leader is constantly changing making for some hectic work days. Managers will say one thing one day then its completely different the next. To many mixed messages.

    I was fired, due to finishing a transaction of a coworker had started for me (2 months prior to getying fired) When I was called to AP, I was completely intimidated being told "Theres cameras everywhere." "Were always watching you." Thimgs like that. And though i expressed complete honestly and apologised for the actions I was still fired. Doesnt matter how great of a employee you are or how many satisfied clients you have, they see everyone as "indisposible." Management comes off as helpful but dont ask for to much help or you become one of the ignored or brushed off.

  3. "Macys is a great company that cares about its people. You feel they invest in their people."

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

    Pros

    Great training and ability to move through the company. The work is also very fulfilling though the ability to work closely with others and develop their skills

    Cons

    Retail hours are retail hours and they could take a toll on the life at home. It's important that if you want to advance you need to be able to make personal sacrifices.

    Advice to Management

    While very tech related already, there's plenty that can still be automated.

    Pros

    My coworkers are the best part of the job

    Cons

    The hours and pay need a set schedule

    Advice to Management

    I would like to be a manager someday

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Regularly got a lot of free products and great holiday discounts.

    Cons

    No matter how much in hundreds of thousands of dollars in product I would sell it all came to how many Macy's card applications I would get. Being a skincare professional this was not for me. They say they care about the customer, but the customer is really just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody wants to be stopped in the aisle anymore (never in my life have I had people walk around and try to avoid me before working there) OR be called on the phone all the time for new eyeshadow. What is going to happen when all of your older shoppers are gone and most people 25 and under these days think its really weird to be called up over something so trivial?

    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's retail, it has a lot of downs and a lot of labor on your body. Although the people to work with was fun keeping up with sales and cleaning took a toll on my body.

    Cons

    Promises on getting promoted take about a year to get there , hard to work with the slow promotions.

    Advice to Management

    I tried but still promises that weren't made and hereby managers didn't support my degree even.

    Pros

    Ok commission structure as far as retail sales go. If you are in a good department it's a pleasant work environment

    Cons

    Management has no empathy and micromanages everyone, even going so far as to literally tell you where to stand within 2 feet

    Advice to Management

    Stop seeing your employees as robots and start treating them like actual human beings. You'll get better work out of them and they'll enjoy working for you

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

    Pros

    In my 9 years working in retail this is the worst company I have ever worked for management is very unprofessional.please avoid this company at all cost.this store will go out of business because of bad management.they do have their favourite associates if you don't become their favourite you will get fired for no reason they will do whatever it takes to make up you fire because they have deal with Lp people if they fire they will get money so be carefully lol

    Cons

    Minimum wage.you will get a small raise after 2 years now matter how hard working you are.
    Opening a credit.managers constantly remind you 10 times a day to open credit.i know I have to get greed its but you don't have to tell me I m deaf or disabled and please ease on with the nagging.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers should be retired include store manager please higher some one with more energy and new ideas give some chances to youth to get the management so they can come up with great ideas.I am not going to tell you to do your job you should know about your associate if you really do pay attention,and please don't play games at the store and pretend to b nice be genuine.treat all the employees equally.
