    I worked at Macy's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Still friends with some of my coworkers and we helped each other get through the day.

    Cons

    Low pay, high turnover. Management doesn't care about you. Needed a second job to make ends meet because pay is so low and chances for advancement are scarce, unless you know whose butt to kiss.
