    Pros

    Good discounts. The work is mindless. Fellow associates are in the same boat as you, and usually hate the company just as much.

    Cons

    Plenty. There is little to no communication and the pricing/signing is VERY confusing for us, let alone for customers. Raises are only given once a year and have little to do with your job performance. Plus, they're minimal. The company is clearly very greedy and don't care for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our store manager is the devil. Nobody likes her and she's nowhere near friendly.

    Macy's can be a roller coaster ride, depending on your manager..

    I worked at Macy's

    Pros

    Macy's gave decent pay for my position, this could be because it was an early morning shift and because I was a college graduate. They give 10 employee paid days off after 1 year, offer a great discount on top of sale prices and offer special sales to employee friends and family a few times a year. If you have the right manager and a good team, it can be very rewarding, fun experience.

    Cons

    Macy's has a tendency to hire poor managers resulting in a high level of manager turnover. I don't know if its simply poor managers or poor training. Of course retail hours aren't always great especially during the holidays. They have a tendency to rely on gossip as their form of communication rather than being straight forward with their employees. By the time they address an issue, it usually becomes too late, after several people have quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers who have had experience with people and have them learn all aspects of the positions in which they are managing.

    No opinion of CEO
