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

    Pros

    commission-based pay, ability to build own shift schedule, incentive programs, and not much else really

    Cons

    Management often gave in to pushy employees, long shifts with short breaks, goal system tended to be over-demanding, low pay

    Advice to Management

    The level of giving in to over-demanding employees was so high that it often encouraged repeat abusive behavior on behalf of customers, fostering a hostile environment for sales associates at times.
