Signing Associate (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 2, 2018
Good Hours for those who prefer to work in the morning. Great team members to work with. not too difficult work however sometimes some weeks can be much more frustrating than most. Extra hours are offered when they are available. Work culture can be improved and work/life balance is fine.
Retail Sales consultant and customer service (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 28, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed helping the customers find exactly what they were looking for. And especially liked when I could help them find something they loved but had never thought of or even considered before
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 10, 2018
I worked in the corporate office under the event administrator. Although it is a temporary position, I was exposed to many opportunities and people. Working behind the scenes for big events. We got paid every week! Which was a plus.
Big Ticket Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 10, 2018
Sucked. Culture is about money and that's it. Worked there and worked very hard only to be worked even harder while the white male in my department could sit in chair and sleep. When I complained, I was terminated.
Sales Support (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 11, 2018
Early mornings, always on your feet, breaks are short, pay is low, short of staff, customers are rude, have to push credit accounts, tons of returns to deal with. Working on holidays. No skills acquired that can really be used within another company.
Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 9, 2018
Worked my butt off everyday making sure the truck was cleared off and unpacking the boxes and getting them to thew floors designated to each merchandise and always went home with blisters and lost a toes nail. it was the most horrible job ever and telling people about how you felt wasn't ever going to change anything.
Cosmetics Counter Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 5, 2018
Macy's is good at over promising and underdelivering....my position of cosmetics manager did not receive commission due to a complicated situation with someone who previously held my position. Upper management promised to rectify the situation but did not which led to my leaving.
FULFILLMENT ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 16, 2018
This is a job that if you’re looking to make quick money as a part time position it’s good. But if you are hired for full time and only getting 28-32 hours a week, it’s technically still part time. Their full time hours and part time hours are made for younger people with barely any bills to pay.
If you love retail, this is for you. If not, follow your dreams
District Myshop Executive Team (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 5, 2018
I have had an okay experience with Macy's. But at the end of the day, they don't pay enough to keep anyone and expect you to give beyond what you can. If you want to grow with a company, this may not be it for you.
BACKSTAGE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 23, 2018
There are lots of managers and many of them have different ways of managing their department, so you may get one with attitude, one that's very nice, one that's emotionless, and one that's right in the middle. It's very easy to work with others if you have great people skills and that's what Macy's require. I've witnessed co-workers who aren't good communicators complain about a customer who needs answers about a brand or article of clothing when it is the employee's job to tell the customer about the product or find an employee in the store who know's about it if you don't. A typical day is simply recovering your department, helping customers with choices, looking products up for ordering or to see if the product is in another store and/or available in general, having amazing customer service to reach the sales goal of the day and signing customers up for Macy's Credit.
You are recognized for your hard work and advancement isn't impossible.
The health insurance is great, but it could easily take half of your weekly earnings
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 12, 2018

Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 7, 2018
This is a company I miss and want to be successful. However, know you will work very hard mentally and physically to deliver on expectations. It's what you make of it! Macy's, please make the right decisions to be the amazing company you once were!
Technical Lead (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 2, 2018
Macy's Asset Protection department officers great exposure to the Security world. Daily tasks included preventing fraud and loss to the company on many levels. Running reports and cordinating with Law enforcement to ensure prosecution of accused. Management structure of Macy's is excellent with an inclusive nature allowing all ideas and perspectives. Workplace allows for causal attire and an easy going work atmosphere. Hardest part of the job requires to work a schedule that is not consistent. Most enjoyable part of the job is the people you get to work with and the satisfaction you receive when preventing a loss to the company.
Great work atmosphere with great employees and cowerkers
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 28, 2018
Focused on improving stock price. New principal management does not appear to want to listen to current employees on what needs to be changed. Continual staffing and executive reductions force current employees to be stretched beyond what is considered a reasonable workload. Change is needed, company has gone away from their focus on people. Continual staffing reductions leave very little opportunities for advancement. There are Great, hard-working people that work and support the stores population, but they are unfortunately treated like the red-headed step child. Hopeful that new management will take notice and listen to "reality" and will create a culture of no BS.
Smart, friendly, caring people in management and in stores, good benefits
Work-life balance is non-existent in stores, focused only on bottom line, lack of advancement opportunities without being mobile
