Featured Review
"GREAT Company"16 Jul 2021

Current Employee - Visual Captain

I have been working at Macy's full-time for more than a year

Pros

I’ve been with Macy’s for a few years now. I can truly say it’s been the best retail company I have worked for. Benefits, scheduling, weekly pay.. I could go on and on. They care about their... employees and celebrate their employees.

Cons

Not too many downsides aside from trying to hire people with the current Unemployment Benefits currently in place in California.
