  2. "Supportive Environment for Intercompany Growth"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Manager 

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    The manager role has a great deal of autonomy that requires you to really use and sharpen your creativity and problem solving skills. The quality of customer interaction is high. The company is fun and flexible, the colleagues are team oriented, the tasks are challenging, the work force is diverse, and the managers are sharp and supportive.

    Cons

    Some long hours are required, staffing issues are a challenge, and rigid corporate structure sometimes slows down decision making processes.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Macy's full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good discount, usually good sense of teamwork amongst Sales Managers and selling Supervisors. MTMs and OPS typically try and treat group poorly (I was very tenured with company and worked in 4 stores for a lot of years-left on my own without being reduced, so not bitter). You will learn good retail standards working for a Macy’s.

    Cons

    Long hours, especially during holidays. Lots of weekend obligations and late nights. With fewer managers in stores over the years, less people to switch with. Went to teams and Store Managers started wanting you to switch only with your team which literally was 1-2 people, so while they opened schedules greatly for associates, continued to beat managers down with schedule. Only viewed as promotable if you agree to move, and that could mean cross country. I was a highly awarded manager, trained numerous managers, but would have never been considered for a store manager, as they tend to have a career path you must follow. Sales Manager, MTM, District Team, then possibly Asst Store Manager/Ops and then your own store, but the problem is, jobs were constantly being lost, so no one really ever had a chance to shine. Regional Team visits could be brutal...I was in stores big enough to get major corporate visits and observing the way very senior management spoke to their subordinates was really inappropriate.

  7. "Macy's Review"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Retail Sales Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Macy's full-time

    Pros

    fun culture, always lots to do

    Cons

    long hours, especially during holidays

  8. "Great People Make Great Workplaces"

    5.0
    Former Employee - Holiday Ringer in Manchester, NH
    Recommends

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

    Pros

    The team of sales associates and vendors who worked during the holidays were very welcoming and helped me learn the ropes as a holiday ringer. The team atmosphere created a sense of camaraderie instead of competition which was conducive to a fun work work day. The hours were relatively flexible, and I was able to cover shifts for others, allowing me to pick up extra time. The associate discount was especially nice during the holiday shopping season.

    Cons

    The long hours were initially hard on my feet until I got better shoes. Occasionally you would have to deal with a difficult customer, but with a supportive team it wasn't so bad. The transition from holiday position to regular associate is not straight-forward.
