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

    Pros

    The only pro was that I have a job and some nie people I met at work.

    Cons

    The hours suck.

    You could be scheduled to finish a shift at midnight and expected to come the next day at 8 am. Which depending on where you live, what you do when you get home... you might not be able to get home, eat, sleep or shower. Instead you will leave to literally maybe change clothes then come back to work.
    The pay is very low for whathave to do.
    Managers micromanage as if we are kids and don’t know what we are doing.

    I wish the pro was constructive, like better pay, or better hours. But nah. The things that matter don’t

    Advice to Management

    I don’t think they care enough for me to give advice
