    I worked at Macy's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, MOST coworkers are friendly

    Cons

    ridiculous over the top sales goals-especially in fragrance, too many people working in one department so sometimes its really hard to meet your goal-especially in any of the clothing departments. unnecessary pressure to open charge cards

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so adamant about the sales goals, or just try to have less people in each department so it's easier for everyone to reach their goal.
