"What you see is what you get." Macy's is a massive retailer, so it is exactly what you would expect. You work most nights, weekends and holidays. When I was hourly I made more than I would have made at similar companies; however, when I was salaried management, I made just as much as I would have at any other retailer. Upper-level management really was not bad at all. They seemed better than most other upper-level management teams that I have worked for. Again, like most other retailers, there is little job security. There were numerous positions while I was there, especially salaried management, that were cut because the company wanted to restructure. There was one woman who had been with the company 15+ years and was still doing the job well, and they let her go just like that because they were changing the position. It is unfortunate, but it is the current corporate mindset. Overall, they are the best retailer that I have worked for, but it is still a retail company in Corporate America so do not expect much.
