Really flexible and understanding workplace

Featured review

Macy's selected this as a representative review
I started working at Macy’s when I was 16. They were really flexible with my school schedule. Very formal and professional management, yet understanding. They also had many opportunities for bonuses.


Benefits, flexible, discount

It was a good job

Overall well supported from management. Fun atmosphere most days. At times could be too much red tape as people in certain roles were not always looking out for best interest of the company's performance but rather their own self interest.

Great Place to Work

It's probably the best job I've ever had. I loved the work environment; managers occasionally provided employees lunch such as Chick-fil-A or Olive Garden. They do lots of activities with the employees and have themed days to dress up if you want. All the employees there are very friendly and welcoming. Very fast-paced though which I liked but if you don't like chaos this wouldn't be the job for you.

Long n tiring

Low pay, standing all day, long lines, no mobility. Working seasonal just sucks. Did this when I was in high school. Management was bad, you’re just another number

A bit stressful

Does not pay as much as they should. Job is simple enough but can be a little stressful at times. Also company needs better equipment because half the time equipment doesn’t work which can make completing your task a bit more difficult.

Great company to grow with

Great company to build your skills, truly doesn’t care about their employees safety (ie Shoplifters, unsafe driving conditions). The discount is good.

Nice pay, nice people, mediocre management

Management is a mess, they are mediocre and don’t know what they’re doing. I’ve gone entire shifts without taking my breaks because they didn’t send anyone to cover my break.


Weekly pay


Mediocre Managers

They literally use people to work just to fire them after background checks! Was treated terribly and I wouldn't recommend working for them in the future

Don’t do it if you get bored easily! There is really no room for moving up unless you are interested in becoming a detective, constantly being watched on camera

Not great but not bad

The people you meet are great, management sucks. Also, the job can be stressful but it’s pretty easy once you figure the system out. I worked there for three years and had a decent experience.

Seasonal worker

Got really busy throughout the holiday season. Be prepared to be on your feet all day and night. Forgot what pay was like but probably minimum wage. I did like the discounts though

Fun and productive

Great place to work. Good benefits and work life balance. Laid back environment to work. Old school environment than fast paced work culture. Dependency on various teams to collect the data
