Loved my coworkers, management not so great

Management wasn’t so great. Communication between them wasn’t great but loved my co workers. We were always overworked and never had enough help. Overall, was a great part time job.

Management

Working at the Herald square location was very stressful. You was pressure by management to open multiple credit cards a day even though our union book told us differently. Some of the mangers would through tantrums as if they were children. They would fight amongst each other and not even speak to each other at times. Great way to lead a team. They would pick and choose who was their favorite instead of treating everyone equally and no problem throwing you under the bus if it meant saving their behind.

Pros

flexiable schedule

Cons

short staffed, poor department mangemenr

Typical workplace

They are understaffed and need to compensate their employees more if they want someone to work there. Usually the fitting rooms are full of clothes and there is no limit to the number of clothes you can take inside.

Pros

Flexible schedule

Cons

Compensation

I worked there when there was a Home Photo Studio. The photo team and environment were great!

It was a great place to cut my teeth as a photographer, but it was a very sad day for all of our crew when the Home Studio was shut down. Overall it was a great place to work.

Pros

work life balance was great. fun place to work.

Cons

pay was low to the standard for photography studio.

Terrible Management, Cool Coworkers, Nightmarish Customers

Working at any retail establishment is a nightmare, but if you're good with people, it's not as bad. Management sucks, you do get a lot of cool coworkers (at least I did), coupons are always an issue, customers are so entitled you would have to have manager present at all times, and even then they'll side with the customer and make it out as if you were born with the lowest intelligence. It's a good job to get your foot in the door as far as experience, and the systems and registers are super easy to get the hang of. It could be different for you but I only liked my posse of coworkers and the monthly birthday cake in the break room.

Pros

Monthly Birthday Cake, Few but Cool Coworkers

Cons

Management, Customers, Coupons, Policies

Balance

Good culture but pretty difficult to get a promotion especially within buying. Very competitive. Now the offices are hybrid and you can only come in one week a month. If you’re young and want to make connections this will be hard with this model.

Pros

Great culture

Cons

Challenged mobility

Great company, so long as the people who work there are good

I used to work here during my college years so I could get some experience and people skills under my belt. Management used to be great, until the good ones either transferred or left, and the new ones had no concept or understanding of leadership. They will throw you under the bus without hesitation to appease every last customer. The district manager kept firing or laying off people leading up to Covid, and those of us who were left had to pick up the slack. Sale days were chaotic and unorganized, so it was difficult to keep up.

Pros

Flexible scheduling, employee discount, awesome coworkers

Cons

Short staffed, bad managers, unruly customers

Good company, enjoyable place to work

worked here for 2 years, manager was very helpful in getting department organized and stayed on top of things. coworkers were generally a good group however one bad apple was not making things easy, and everyone was glad when she finally quit (or got fired... I didn't ask). Hours good for flexibility, pay was adequate with room for advancement

Pros

Easy commute, good direction from supervisor and manager

Good place to work if you can keep up

Retail is different than most workplaces and can be difficult for some to keep up with, I suggest asking during an interview how this may affect you. Security however is standard and they have strick nondiscrimination policies they follow closely. They do offer room for advancement multiple times a year, but you do have to be on the up and up, they won't simply train you in if you're not ready.

Pros

good policies, breaks taken seriously, good recognition, employee incetives

Cons

can be overwhelming at times

Terrible work place culture

Macys just doesn't care about the people that work for them management is trained to do the same they do not care about their employees. The supervisors are very jealous of the people on the floors comradary. It's a lot of older people in management that do not like change.

Pros

Ok money

Cons

The managers and supervisors are trained to not treat employees good at all.
