    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Discount, clear goals and expectations.

    Cons

    Great for PT, but FT work was not cool. Management picks favorites and Upper management treats everyone like a number not a person. Employees are pressured to report to work during unsafe weather conditions because profits are more important than people.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of leadership not management and pay people what there worth. Also if you encourage someone to apply for a promotion don't turn around and say that they aren't a good fit for the promotion.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Macy's

    Pros

    Very hard to find any pros for working at Macy's.

    Cons

    Macy's does NOT value its employees. They continue to add on tasks to employee job titles, but don't offer more money nor even provide adequate coverage on the sales floor to be able to accommodate any of the tasks. Employees are severely overworked and shamefully underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Be sympathetic to how hard your employees work!

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      Pros

      If you do your work well, more than likely you will move up to a better position with much better pay.

      Cons

      Not the best people to work with. Only worried about making sales for the day.

      Advice to Management

      Try not to crack down on the staff so much. We are all human. Mistakes happen one way or another.
