    Pros

    Great discount and pretty good pay. Nice co workers.

    Cons

    There was too many times I felt I had nothing to do and was just making busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Define expectations of the seasonal ringers better.

    Quick promotions for those who work hard.

    Pros

    Rise through the ranks quickly. I've gone from an on-call/flex to full time to specialist in a matter of months.
    Great motivation to get credits. Macy's money or cash for each person you sign up.
    Recognition for hard work.
    Team meeting every morning to keep employees well informed.
    20% discount on top of coupons and sales.

    Cons

    Slow to process promotions. Took weeks for company to put me as full time when already decided.
    Not all managers go by the book, so one can tell you something and another can say something completely different.
    Promotions do not come with raises.

    Advice to Management

    Work on cons.
