    I have been working at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A great employee discount! You get your discount on top of the sales that are going on in the store, which adds up. The people are great, very friendly, and will help you when you need it. A nice atmosphere. Always hiring!

    Cons

    Low pay, for decent work. The schedule is not consistent - you don't know if you'll get any work in a week or how many hours you'll get. They are trying to cut down on people's hours as well, for budget reasons (shopping malls are becoming obsolete you know, sorry :/). Training could be a whole lot better. I did not feel at all prepared on my first day being on the floor. There is a lot of burnout from the full-time employees who have been there for a long time. A serious amount of theft happens, and you can't always catch people.

    Advice to Management

    Make the training longer, maybe 4 days? To be safe make it a week. There's a lot to learn! As said above, there is a ton of burnout from your seasoned employees, try to treat them well with paid vacation/sick time. Offer that to all your seasoned employees actually! They're running the place! Make security better! Have there be more than one officer on hand, and have more security cameras, or a better security system. That way you won't be losing as much money as you are from theft! Another way to cut down on costs is not ordering merchandise that doesn't sell! Being on the front lines selling things, you see what sells and what doesn't...and there's A LOT that does not get sold.

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co workers and associates were wonderful employee discount and vacation time was amazing but necessary

    Cons

    Literally doing the job of at least 10 people for minimal pay and insane physical labor expected of managers including moving furniture and closing trash compactors no joke .

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you got used to exploiting employees in a recession but in this economy there are so many other options only a fool would put up with the abuse for long
