    I have been working at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can "pick up" additional hours if you would like more hours than assigned. This is great for part time associates with flexibility. 20% employee discount which can be used with coupons.

    Cons

    Not aware of the sales in advance, so customers are asking you questions you don't know how to answer quickly. This can be a bit frustrating. Signs for sales do not always reflect in the computer, so you are running back and forth to various areas to verify the information as there aren't people on the floor with walkie talkies. The only way to receive the 20% employee discount is by having a credit card or a pre-paid card. You pay full price for items at check out and then discount is reflected on your statement. So at the end of the day. Macy makes money off your pre-paid card in the form of interest and off your revolving charge card in the form of finance charges and fees. You are not given a pre-paid card if you owe them money. You will not receive and employee discount if you do. At the end of the day, there is really no discount, because it can be eaten up by fees if you don't do a lot of shopping. There is $2.00 monthly card fee if you have no balance.

    Advice to Management

    Can't tell you what you all ready know, you just choose not to listen unless it benefits your bottom line.
