    Pros

    You get to make your own schedule!! Coworkers were helpful and you get a point system to take days off or call off when you decide to.

    Cons

    Downside was management. Our manager was not always fair to employees unless you were their favorite. Might not be all places.

    I have been working at Macy's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salaried managers get 4 weeks paid vacation. Health benefits are okay and 401k is good. Paying a decent wage even if you don't have a college degree.

    Cons

    Depending on who you report to since you are salaried they will work you to death. You're scheduled to work 40 hours a week but mostly end up working 60 or more or working at least 10 or 20 hours from home all week.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about what you want done and what you don't want done don't give people more projects and 15 minutes before they're supposed to leave for the day or three big projects before they go on vacation. Pay attention to your store managers that's why you have such a large turnover.
