Q: What is it like working at Macy's, Inc.?

Visual Manager in Dallas:
"If you like a good challenge...jump in!"
Pros: Creative challenges to solve, enticing customers to shop through our work, elevating the overall environment of a challenging store, managing creative types, executing Macy's creative vision with liberty.
Cons: The workload, the compensation, the lack of perks in this position as an "hourly executive", the slow crawl up the pay ladder ...you have to move stores/states yearly as a visual executive in order to significantly (..not so significantly)increase your salary. Macy's does not truly consider your years of work experience, knowledge and skill when they set a job offer. They want the best right off the bat, but will not offer pay commensurate with that. The best way to make money at Macy's is to start young and stay long...and move a lot.
