Laid back environment with good coworkers, but little advancement
Asset Protection Detective (Former Employee) – Dublin, OH – July 14, 2019
Working for Macy's asset protection team required and reinforced a lot of skills involving teamwork and the ability to deal with different kinds of people, whether other associates, regular shoppers, or shoplifters. Unique skills are learned and overall it is actually exciting to build up a case and apprehend the repeat offenders. The pay tops out around $14 an hour, which I consider very low for the requirements of detectives in this department, and starts at $10.35. My ultimate reason for leaving, besides very noncompetitive pay, was the hourly schedule. I was required to work roughly 10 hours each day scheduled, from 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM. This left very little time for a personal life or any other relatively productive outside-of-work activities. Overall, I did enjoy the Macy's atmosphere and had very few complaints regarding my coworkers and managers.
