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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, friendly, helpful, and cooperative coworkers, on top of a welcoming professional environment are all factors that make Macy's a good place to work.

    Cons

    If you dislike being mobile and proactive, the holidays aren't going to be much fun. If you like to stay on your toes and being around lots of activity, it'll be entertaining.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the schedules were more consistent, I found myself working 30-40+ hours some weeks. I acceded to the extra hours and retail tends to be chaotic so I can't really complain too much.

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

    Pros

    i enjoyed working with the customers, it was the holiday season so most people were just excited for christmas and gifts, etc.

    Cons

    A lot of old timers, people that have been there for a while and much older than I was, very judgmental and weren't kind or patient to me -- a newcomer and also very young at the time.

    Advice to Management

    The more organized, the better. I was very unsure and lost most days as to where I was supposed to be and what my goal was. Also, to break up the clique-ness. Definitely ruined my experience because no one was welcoming.

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

    Pros

    My best reason to work at Macy's was the ability to set your own hours. I could manage my hours shifts around my class schedule and manage to get enough time for both. There is lots of room to move up in the company if you choose and many areas in work in the retail shops.

    Cons

    Since it is such a large enterprise it is difficult to get you're bearings. Product knowledge was also a problem. However once fully trained in an area it is no longer an issue.

    Fun upbeat place to work, co-workers were fun to work with. Management was great to work with from department to general manager. The best retail job I have ever had sad to see places like this closing due the changing times

    Had to leave due to major medical issue not related to job. Low wages

    Advice to Management

    Sad to see a great American retail going through hard times. This is one of great ones I hope doesn’t totally close up.
