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

Pros

It's a lot of fun. It was boring at first when there wasn't a lot of sales and they over staffed the department but it's more fun and enjoyable the closer we get to Christmas. I love all the employees I work with and the customers are pretty great too. They don't get easily annoyed like at most other stores. I also love that you can make your own hours. Every Sunday, you "pick up shifts" for the next week. It makes balancing work life and real life easy.

Cons

There is a strong lack of communication. I was interviewed and then started training a few days later. Training took 2 nights. They never gave me hours after training. They told me to call Black Friday to talk to my manager who I never meet and didn't even know her name. So I called and of course they couldn't get a hold of her. So they said they would give me a call back. Then I got a call Sunday night (2 days later) to come in for orientation but still no hours to work. So I go in for orientation on Monday night. They still do not give me hours. So I didn't start working for 2 weeks after my interview until I could pick up shifts. I didn't meet my "manager" until 4 days after working there.

Advice to Management

Get more organized when hiring seasonal so it's less stressful on yourself and your new hires. Communicate!
