    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -Decent benefits -Disaster pay and payed time off -Opportunity for job advancement -You are constantly active - For the most part, very friendly staff -Management is very centered

    Cons

    -You are expected to pick up the slack -Finishing your work doesn't necessarily mean taking it easy for the rest of the day. -There's an understanding to take your time doing your work or work more than you had to. -Required skills for the position very from store to store - Expect to go and help other stores - Lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Understand what your responsibilities are and make clear and precise goals and expectations of your employees. Give clear direction of the daily tasks and duties of every employee and make extra time for mistakes, because they occur very frequently. Communication with the rest of the team is very important , but mostly forgotten.

  4. Good experience

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

      Pros

      Both Team and Individual-based. Start early, end early.

      Cons

      Have to start early, not as creative as it could be. Everything is pretty much written out to what you need to have. It's very physical.

      Advice to Management

      Have more one on one time with new employees. Don't rely on just the people who work below you.

    • Value your employees

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

      Pros

      The people were awesome. Management worked with you, as far as hours and time off.

      Cons

      The pay could of been better. Moves and projects needed to be planned better. Hours at times were very long, to make up for bad planning.

      Advice to Management

      Review floor moves before moving merchandise to make sure it fits. Would save a lot of wasted time and energy.

    • No flexibility

      I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Benefits are average, discounts are nothing to be wowed by.

      Cons

      management doesn’t care if you have a life. Expect to work long hours getting paid like a sales associate but doing work of a construction worker, problems using benefits you’ve earned over the years because of management.
