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

Pros

people are nice, clean environment, training is quite thorough and self explanatory. you are not obligated to work extra hours if it is shorthanded. nice discount, at certain times of the year you get extra discounts as well. the more you sell, the more make.

Cons

long working hours, even if you're a student. No wiggle room for those who have go to school. They do not care about school. Raises are only once a year and the management are not very personal. It is hard to speak with them and they are not friendly.

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

    Pros

    you get to control your schedule

    Cons

    It takes a long long long time to even know what you're doing there and it feels like people aren't very willing to help. A lot of times I needed help and the coworker was annoyed and gave an excuse to not answer my question.

    Advice to Management

    maybe give new hires an experienced "buddy" just to work with for at least a month to really help them out. I was literally on my own and had to learn the hard way which really made me dislike going to work.
