    I enjoyed my holiday season at Macy's Concord, CA

    I worked at Macy's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked the holiday season, the employee discount in combination with the seasonal discounts were a great perk. Everyone worked as a team. This company has a solid identity and a huge commitment to customers.

    Cons

    I felt the one day training was a bit of an overload - but if you just concentrate on transactions on how to do the register transactions things get clear pretty quickly. Also signing up for hours online often availability was difficult to get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seasonal employees are just told to report to their assigned department - however it is very difficult to put together how to get hours and who to check in with when management is so busy with the holiday. Often I believe they just assume you know.
