I worked at Macy's part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

None. I have nothing positive to say about Macy's. Nothing.

Cons

Macys is about the numbers. They fired me for excessive absences. My mother had dementia and passed away in June. Macy's doesn't care and fired me based upon the number of absences.
I was working on call and my schedule was somewhat flexible. Then I was switched to part time and the management began scheduling my work time on line and without my knowledge. The online scheduling system MySchedulePlus is down most of the time. That system simply cannot handle high user volume.
I wasn't working there every day, so it was difficult to figure how what days and times management would schedule me to work.
I had to call out a lot because my mother had dementia and I needed to visit her in the hospital. I called Macy's HR and explained the call out was due to my mother's illness. Coincidentally, the day that my mother died was the final absence that Macy's used against me to fire me. Macy's made it clear to me that on the day my mother died, Macy's doesn't care about it, only about their bottom line.

Advice to Management

Have some compassion for employees
