    Pros

    Good benefits if you can get them.

    Cons

    No respect from management or customers. All push for getting charges and sales but no consideration for the fact there are too few associates working, too much area to cover by ones self, really bad pay raises (worked for Kaufmann's/Macy's for almost 9 years and do not even make $9 per hour), they've cut vacation time, they've pitted one associate against another for sales and accounts. Used to be fun but not any longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those of us who are out on the floor.........give us a reason to want to come to work. You put us down at every turn. The more you work, the less you are appreciated. Proven full timers should have the pick of the shifts not the part timers. The part timers can work all dayturn if they want and no weekends. They can say if they want to work or not.........they can have a life...........not those of us who have put years into the company and proven ourselves to be useful, productive employees. Give us decent pay raises. What I make is a joke for the number of years I've been with the company. Do not rate our reviews on the entire store........rate us on what we do as individuals. Give us the help we need and do away with the dead wood in the store. Give me credit for what I do, sales/accounts/bridal work as we do not have a bridal consultant.

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Pretty easy work. Nothing too challenging. Management was very understanding about school and personal schedules.

    Cons

    I was not satisfied with the advancement opportunities. I was very unhappy with the managements insistence that we speak to customers in a robotic fashion...we were told to input the word, "outstanding" as often as possible. It felt fake and insincere. I also disliked how you were supposed to hound the customers about whether or not they had Macys' Cards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please allow a more relaxed customer service attitude. Most of my coworkers were happy to help customers, but when there was a manager looking over our shoulder, it made us nervous and I believe lowered our level of service.
