      Pros

      Consistent work place. In my experience, what I am scheduled is what I will work. Fair and honest work place. Managers were genuine. PTO, Employee Discount, Benefits for full-time employees. Fun people to work with!

      Cons

      A lot of responsibility for what you are compensated. Hours are not very flexible, be prepared to sacrifice weekends and holidays. This is to be expected in retail. High pressure on daily sales goals, and credit cards. These numbers reflect your review.

      Pros

      Acceptable salary. Good discount for employees.

      Cons

      The Macy's credit card is such a hassle. Employee pre-paid is sometimes confusing and doesn't work well.

      Pros

      If you're a hard worker, you have the ability to stand out. There's a modest discount, and most co-workers are friendly and helpful!

      Cons

      Macy's preys on low-income customers (often hard-working immigrants with a language barrier) to open credit cards with astronomically high APR rates. I'm a capitalist and even I'm disgusted by the gross predatory culture they've created. They are a loan shark moonlighting as a department store.

      Good first time job

      Pros

      The job itself is easy. If you want a job in retail but don’t necessarily want to talk to customers as much but still want to be on the sales floor this is a good position for you.

      Cons

      I️t gets a little boring being recovery especially when all you do is fold clothes all day. Also the employee discount is only applied if you have a Macy’s credit card or debit card and your discount can’t be combined with other discounts which sucks.
