    I worked at Macy's part-time

    Pros

    I worked at Macy's for 3 months. Picked your own shifts. Worked with great people from the Store Manager down to the maintenance workers and asset protection guards. I loved helping customers select the merchandise they wanted to buy. Loved getting paid every 7 days. Training was good from supervisors and teammates. Taught me a lot about folding clothes, towels, which helped me to become more organized with my own clothes and towels.

    Cons

    Wished the job was permanent and that the salary was higher.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Macy's as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very Flexible schedule. Uses some technology.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment. Managers have a tendency to talk down to employees. They say there is no difference between FTE and Seasonal employees but one wouldn't know that all based on the way they are treated.

    The pay sucks in retail too.

    Advice to Management

    Training and coaching. Live up to what you have said on paper in your mission and vision statements. It does not permeate through the firm nor the store.
