    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work was fun and the people I worked with were great! Hours weren't bad either.

    Cons

    They make you push credit cards when many people either already have one or dont want one. Only 3 days you can request off per month and every quarter they make cuts so your job is never really safe.

    Former Employee - Beauty Advisor/Task/Prestige Consultant 

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    Fun to work in cosmetics, less to deal with than average sales associate

    Cons

    Too many different people to report to, no one able to pick up shifts if you need to switch

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free gratis products in the cosmetic department

    Cons

    I worked at two separate Macys in the cosmetic dept. and twice I witnessed bullying, racism, and injustice. The most recent experience was filled with racism, homophobia, bigotry, bullying, and unhealthy promotion of the brand. You could clearly see that the older employees felt superior and stepped on the younger employees by taking sales, criticizing, and even yelling at them. I have never cried at a job but I cried because of the attitudes of the other employees towards me. There is only ONE thing they care about: who makes the greatest sales. HR is nonexistent and I wasn't given a chance to complain upon my voluntary quit.
