    Pros

    Many good and hard working people who represent the brand and more importantly themselves well. District Managers who have had similar store backgrounds and understand day to day operations.

    Cons

    Salaried employees are expected to work 50 to 60 hour weeks. Raises in salary are few and far in between. The company doesn't really care about external theft. District Managers are often rude and unprofessional. There is without question "clicks" to most District teams in the they all come from just a handful of the same (usually larger) stores where they had been Managers. If you are liked by certain District Managers you can skate by for years with the company. If you are not personally liked it doesn't not matter what you achieve with and for the company you will be terminated for the slightest issue. Overall, many middle aged employees of the company know and voice the opinion that this is not your mothers or grandmothers Macy's but rather an insanely politically correct company trying to catch up to the likes of the more successful on-line retailers while at the same time trying to figure out how to capture the business of the lower end big box type stores. Macy's has over the past decade stopped being Macy's.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a waste of time to attempt. Even senior store Managers opinions are not truly valued. The company tries too hard to be all things to all people instead of actually being Macy's. The District bosses should show a little more gratitude for the successes achieved by the store level Managers, especially since they are the ones of deal with the customers and conditions in their respective locations

    Pros

    Hours were good
    Liked co-workers (not management)

    Cons

    Worst management anywhere (and not only in-store)
    Very unorganized, uncoordinated, disconnected, clueless
    Minimum wage which is appalling seeing as how large of a company it is.
    Raises 12¢

    Advice to Management

    Executives should take advice from store employees on certain procedures instead of "MAGICally" knowing how to run a store they don't step foot in. And pay the people who keep that store up and running more than you're legally obligated to.
