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

    Pros

    Loved that each day was different, I would work in delivery and then I'd be up front loading and unloading trailers. But it was actually pretty cool working with my mom.

    Cons

    The only challenge I had working here was getting to work on time.

    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less 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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and the discount

    Cons

    All the positions are filled very fast and lots of random times to come in. Not good for someone who has small children.

    Advice to Management

    More regulated

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

    Pros

    The physical store was a great environment with easy navigation and entry. The merchandise is higher end and easy to sell. Everyone knew what there job was and the what the rules were.

    Cons

    The staff are very competitive and could be extremely inappropriate, including some management and HR. Bullying did happen there on more than one occasion in more than one department.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire some people to be like security but for the personnel working there to see the interpersonal relationships people have with each other there and make some serious culture changes. Maybe even clean house with people and start over because the seniority rules there seemed to give people a sense of power over others that was GREATLY utilized and people were taken advantage of and even bullied. I would also recommend interviewing people on a quarterly basis to make sure nothing like that is happening anymore.

    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.

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

    Pros

    The people are kind, the customers are great, and training is very thorough.

    Cons

    Had to take on responsibilities I wasn't aware of sometimes. Not a lot but a few times.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing worth noting, but always talk to your employees to find out if there are ways to improve.

    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.
