    High employee morale, caring managers, enough hours, employee discount

    Tiring, customers can be very high maintenance and rude, hard to get a shift covered, plenty of “clo-pens” so your hours get messed up, Black Friday is miserable, working in a mall gets depressing after a while, having to push people to open a stupid macy’s credit card when they don’t want or need one

    Pros

    I loved the beauty company I worked for and the other beauty advisors on the team. The pay was okay for the amount of work at first.

    Cons

    After a while, management kept changing and it left me, a part-time associate, to do things that a counter manager or the department manager should've been doing. And with them refusing to pay me more for the added-on responsibilities, I decided to quit.
