    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Loved helping customers. Had a blast with them

    Cons

    Many days you come in to find a decision has been made by corporate that makes work harder for us but also negatively effects customers. Often these changes make no sense because they don't improve sales and either add to costs or can't save very much money

    Advice to Management

    Think about the effects of your decisions on staff and customers. It is not all bottom line. There are intangibles you are missing that actually add to your profits. Provide training for staff on the products they are selling. Help your people improve. Use mentorship. So many things you could do but no one is willing. It's a shame

    Former Employee - Seasonal Merchandiser in Seattle, WA

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fun and good team work environment

    Cons

    There were not enough staffs working on the floor to help customers. You need to handle a lot of things at the same time which was very stressful

    Advice to Management

    Manger should have more meetings with employees to listen to their opinions and improve management methods

    Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier in Puyallup, WA

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    20% employee discount, opportunity to earn additional discounts, great system for self managing your schedule, friendly managers and co-workers

    Cons

    You HAVE to get a Macy's card to get the discount, they make you push credit cards and not meeting your quota affects your raise options come review time, the "raise" you get isn't even enough for a cost of living adjustment, it's almost impossible to get full time work unless you stay for a long time.

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of good discount on clothing.

    Cons

    When I was working, there were many times where people didn't show up to work and I had to do their part also.

    Advice to Management

    Had a pretty nice manager. However, he left 2 months after I started and everything started to fall apart.
