    High sales goal, have to make credit applications every 12 hours worked. If someone in management doesn’t like you, you’re gonna have a bad time. No HR office

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a good place to make money when the traffic is high and if the manager favors you and schedules you during peak hours. It is a competitive and dirty work floor, where you will be hated by your co-workers no matter how nice you be with them.

    Cons

    You will get no rest time. In downtimes, you are not even allowed to socialize or relax. Very cutthroat competition, and low compensation.
