Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

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

Pros

Very likable co-workers. Managers were relatively easy going and tried to make getting loyalties/credit accounts more than just badgering the customer. The many sales that were going on made it easy for me to shop for what I wanted, haha.

Cons

You start out at minimum wage no matter what. This wasn't really a problem for me since I still live at home but others who live on their own and have school to pay for probably have to find another job. Customers can be extremely rude when they don't get what they want but hey, that's retail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees will be more likely to stay with the company if the compensation was higher than minimum wage for new recruits, thus wasting less money on training.
