    I worked at Macy's part-time (less than an year)


    Had lots of hours
    Was paid more because I worked in the designer department
    Co-workers were friendly and taught you everything you needed to know, management not so much though.
    Gets you out of your shell


    Only allowed one day off for classes
    Managers didn't care if it was a slow night, if you didn't meet your sales goal you were in trouble. They didn't care about connecting with people. They only cared about the sale so they could beat another macys.
    Dress code was different depending on who you spoke to
    Orientation was awful and just sat in front of a computer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized and don't just look at the numbers. Look at every factor that contributes

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Macy's.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process wasn't really all that difficult. For the First interview it was just the basics : "Tell me about a time when..." and "How would you handle this situation". I got called back for a second interview, but they told me the position was filled and offered me another position instead which was great.
