It's not worth the lost time with your family, and missing out on your children's growing up.

    They treat their managers as slaves, they are always moving around around our shifts without asking and if they do ask you have no option but to do as they ask or your punished for it. You work any where from 12 to 16 hour days some times for weeks on end with en with no days off. If your not part of the click and bow down to you store and shift managers they go out of their way to fire you.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Only ifin they are able to solely place their job before their family.

    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.

Everyone wants to be noticed and rewarded for their hard work but don't let it consume you. Leave work at work even though sometimes they make it hard.

ROI doesnt add up...high expectations, high level of effort, insufficient compensation/recognition for level of investment.

Can work your way up to management, but be prepared to work extra tasks than male management. I gave more than enough notice before maternity leave, ended up training new hired replacements the last month. Upper management did not prepare transition well, as I did have a deadline.

    6 paid / unpaid

    First 6 weeks considered short term disability with 1/2 hours paid. I was full time management at the time, worked for 1.5yrs to qualify for extra 6 weeks unpaid. Unsure what part time benefits (if any) would be.

    Able to work and pick up extra hours, unable to drop down in hours even with new availability.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you want to be a cashier or copy center, it's great. But If you want to sell or be equal management, good luck.
