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

    Pros

    No micromanagement, weekends off, simple, straightforward work, decent management,

    Cons

    Climate extremes, If freight runs out, forced to take time off, Upper management has NO idea the job you do; difficult to move up

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to move up to keep quality employees; show appreciation to all dept. equally.

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

    Pros

    20% employee discount plus additional 20/20 events
    flexible scheduling

    Cons

    low starting pay rate
    very high attrition rate

    Advice to Management

    specific to the call centers: hire and promote from within. a dedicated team member who has devoted years of service to the company and shown true loyalty will be a better manager than a 22 y/o with a BA in Communication or Management that is only going to use your role as a stepping stone to a higher paying job within 1-2 years

  3. "Flexible hours, pay is sub-par"

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Shifts for support are very flexible to your needs outside of work, employees on support team are good people, as part-time you get holiday pay, benefits for part-time are also decent, you do get vacation pay based on the amount of hours you worked the previous year which is a good perk

    Cons

    Pay is sub-par (ex Target is now above $10/ hour STARTING and heading toward $15/hour) Hours are VERY early (start at 6am, sometimes 5am) and holiday stretch of Thanksgiving to Christmas is a bear with start times - some times as early as 4am (but it is retail). Hours tend to be inconsistent at best - one week 25 hours, next week 12.

    I have been working at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, very quick application to hiring process ( I was emailed the day after submitting an application to say they would be calling, then received their call the day after that and was told on the phone I was hired.)

    Cons

    Minimal training, stressed mgrs. They do try to be professional in what they do and have lots of on line training even for seasonal employees.

    Pros

    PTO is ok, HR staff is nice.

    Cons

    unprofessional district teams, and store management. No support and very little training for flex associates. Very demanding and condescending

    Advice to Management

    Your engagement wouldn't be so low if the overall moral wasn't low... Check the Indian chiefs in the Tee Pee... it all starts with them especially in Tampa

    Pros

    Easy work
    Lots of downtime before closing time and on non-busy days
    Flexible schedule

    Managers push sales and credits with no incentives.
    Pay is not great, even with experience.

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

    Pros

    Discount is good and the executive benefits are the best. Flexibility in schedule for the most part outside of holiday.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, unfair pay for associates who grow with the company, added responsibility to Sales Managers with less of a team to accomplish the tasks

    Advice to Management

    Recognize those who have been loyal to you and pay them fair. It's frustrating when I'm developing an EDP who doesn't know as much as I do and they are paid a higher rate. That also goes for most who are hired from the outside.
