      Current Employee - Cosmetics Counter Manager 

      I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Set day off every week.

      Cons

      Long hours. Little or no recognition. With job cuts you are doing the work of 5 people every day but you are not compensated enough. Late nights and weekends.

      Advice to Management

      Start recognizing and promoting your people. Talk to your associates as people don't yell and badger.

      I worked at Macy's for less than a year

      Pros

      I loved my job at Macy's through the Executive Development Program. I learned a lot and felt my on boarding prepared me for the next steps. I also felt the support from upper management and that there was always a chance for growth in the company.

      Cons

      It is definitely hard work and it is retail so long hours, nights, weekends and holidays.
