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

    Pros

    The pay is really good, the hours are really good and the people and coworkers are really nice to me and the environment is good.

    Cons

    There not really any cons, except that sometimes a customer can get rude or something or many things could not be going right.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are great, keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Working closely with peers and collaboration -sharing ideas is expected

    Cons

    Working weekends is a must - they "guarantee" 6 weekend days off every schedule rotation but rarely does it happen. Work-life balance is tough

    Advice to Management

    Help sales managers have a better work-life balance

    Pros

    Working at Macy's you usually have very lovely coworkers and the the discount can come in handy.

    Cons

    The way back of the house discounts work is a nuisance. The pressure to get people to sign up for credit is almost predatory, and overall the job isn't fulfilling.

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

    Pros

    Good environment and discounts, also nice break rooms.

    Cons

    Scheduling was sometime difficult, especially when they did not take into consideration that you are using public transportation. Also when I went back the next year since I had just worked the holiday season, someone I had worked with before spoke with me then said let me go see what we have available for you and left the room. She came back a few minutes later and said, "Oh we don't have anything for you, come shop with us." Later I told the store manager about this she agreed that this and said well if I do not have job then how can I shop? She agreed that this was not an appropriate thing for her to say. However she did say if she had a job she would give it to me. Therefore I must have been good employee.

    Advice to Management

    Do not give employees current or former false leads.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility early in career. Focus on people development. Many programs for high potential talent that foster learning, but don't lead to promotion.

    Cons

    Hours. Must complete your work and others to be considered talent. Stagnant position-- 2/180 sales managers promoted in 3 years with company

    Advice to Management

    Promote sales managers up instead of dangling a carrot of promotion
