    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.

    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

    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

    Cons

    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.

    I enjoyed working with Macy's and helping customers. I enjoyed working in fulfillment and on the floor. People were friendly and welcoming. Managers/supervisors were helpful.

    Limited pay. Limited hours. It was hard to find enough hours to make a decent paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff to work the floor. Keep more staff in recovery designated to keep the dressing room organized and clean. Have more registers open.

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

    Pros

    Everyone from management to fellow employees were friendly, supportive, and helpful throughout the way. They were all welcoming and we were all able to work in a team. Good benefits from employee discounts, to extra employee discounts every month, and more. There seems to be a room to grow for more permanent employees unlike myself (who is a college student and works whenever I go back home).

    Cons

    Attendance balance spiked up last year from starting off with 4 credits to 9 credits. I think the employees already there may feel like it's unfair since the point system is kind of difficult and they had to go through the concept of only having 4 points in the beginning. So it may give the newer employees more time to miss work.
