    I worked at Macy's for less than a year

    Cons

    I worked at Macy's part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Job advancement, discounts, flexibility, good coworkers

    Cons

    If you want to move up into better positions, you have to overwork yourself to get recognition. Even then you will still have the constant stress of possibly losing your job due to cutbacks, "restructuring," etc.
