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

    Pros

    Extremely fun fast pace, physical work, very supportive MTM's, the HR people are amazing, plus great downtown location.

    Cons

    As a seasonal merchandiser, you will be shunned by the long-time Union employees. Minimum wage and they require you to open a Macy's credit card account if you want to use the employee discount.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love helping my customers

    Cons

    They are constantly trying to make work life more difficult with little to no support. In WA they have taken our earned vacation and converted it to sick leave. All but 1 hour was converted for me. And I cannot schedule 1 hr of vacation!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better. They make or break your store and therefore your job! Fix the scheduling glitches. They happen too often and cause unnecessary stress and work to fix.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Few consequences for not showing up to work.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, even with commission; stores so short staffed that customers are frequently upset upon finally finding someone to help them; unable to spend necessary time with any one customer, resulting in high cancellation and return rates.

    Advice to Management

    Furniture and mattress customers expect a much higher quality of service than they would get looking for shirts at Ross.

    Pros

    discount 20%
    know sales ahead of time
    easy work

    Cons

    schedule changes last minute without notice so you need to keep checking online for changes

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours, reasonable store discount.

    Cons

    Consistently understaffed, even during busy times: nights, weekends, holidays. Employees are expected to pick up the slack for lack thereof, thus pushing back break times and extending hours past what is scheduled.

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Co workers were cool. Only good thing I remember. Dope people.

    Cons

    Felt pretty disorganized. I got thrown around to different sections. Had a shift extended without even being consulted about it first, so when I tried clocking out, I wasn't able to.
