Pros

In my opinion there aren't any pros unless you like rarely working.

Cons

Wells at Macy's you schedule your own hours if you are part time. if you are full time they automatically get 40 hours. if you are part time it is so hard to get hours since you have to get them yourself on the my schedule plus site. you'll be lucky if you 12 hours a week ! They pressure you to be aggressive to the customers which can run the customers off. They also give you super high sales goal and blame you if you don't reach it as if you can force customers to spend money on things they don't want. It's too competitive. Its also very hard to get a raise of get moved to a higher position. They usually just hire a new person if a higher position opens instead of just moving a employee they already have up.

    Pros

    I worked here in college and it was awful. The only pro is the employee discount, but you make so little money that you can't really afford to buy anything, anyway. Also, it motivated me to get a real job. So, thanks for that.

    Cons

    Making basically minimum wage, and being treated with constant suspicion. Getting watched constantly over security cameras, who tell on you even for non-security related issues (one time because a coworker came up and started talking to me at the register). Snotty management. Working retail is already bad, this is the worst.

  2. Waste of time

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program before DHS shuts you down! You're making the Macy's brand look horrible!
