Even though there are predominantly more women than men in the merchandising side, unfortunately women tend to be each other's biggest critics.

Men and women on the sales floor are encouraged to look their best, with good reason. It's directed at all sexes, so while it might seem a bit constrictive, it isn't sexist in nature and appeals to the idea that an associate is really selling the brand.

    Full time positions allowing for family friendly hours are few and far between. Your best bet for those is probably a support position rather than a sales position. Part time positions definitely seem more flexible no matter which department.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There seem to be a few instances in which some members of management prefer to work with and communicate better with men, and it can be very frustrating.

Macys.com is a great place to work if you are looking for work life balance. Although the culture varies by team, most of the .com division is flexible, supportive of working moms/dads, and offers great work life balance.

    Macy's needs to improve the hiring and training of its store management teams. Macy's is a very old-fashioned, hierarchical organization, which I believe is a factor in the company's declining performance.. Managers believe that employees in lower-level positions have little to offer in terms of identifying issues/opportunities and making recommendations for improvements. In this day and age (and with the pervasiveness of age and gender discrimination), there are many sales associates that have more better credentials (e.g., management experience, education, and skills) than those in management roles in the store. If you work in one of the stores (as opposed to a corporate job), your experience will vary depending on the skills, style, disposition, and biases of the store manager. In the Connecticut store that I worked in, the store manager is an authoritarian who manages by intimidating and belittling his employees. When he is displeased with an employee, he would openly yell at them on the store floor. He chastises employees in front of customers. Employees who have disagreed with him or have complained about his disrespectful behavior are targeted for removal or are retaliated against (e.g., not considered for promotion, receive fewer work hours). Unfortunately, other managers have followed in his footsteps. For example, one employee arrived late to work one day because her child was very ill. She was told by the manager that maybe she should think about not having any more children. So little respect for the people who work here for little pay and little opportunity for advancement. Managers who treat employees in this manner should be fired.
