    Pros

    The employee discount given on Macy's merchandise was cool. Thats about the only thing I can think of. Or if you like to be around clothes, or have a "thing" for stocking. I'm sure if you talked to other Macy's employees (well sales associates maybe) they would say thats pretty much the only perk.

    Cons

    The Macy's I worked at was very disorganized. When I came in to work the first couple days, it was never clear what I was supposed to do. The supervisors always had to scramble to assign me my daily task. Or at least where I was supposed to be. This job was seasonal so it was obvious to me they just needed some last minute people to do random things.

    Advice to Management

    Seasonal employees should be offered long term employment opportunities based on performance during work period.
