    Pros

    Employee discount, being able to pick up and advertise shifts to meet ypur need.

    Cons

    PAY, managers are always on you to do something when they do nothing. Opening really late during the holiday even when there are barely customers around. HR staying open until store close.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, period. Stop telling your associates what to do like a dog and listen to them and work with them. Try to push higher up when you get the chance to voice your employees concern instead of trying to sweep everything under the rug and make things look glassy when there is a walk through.

    Pros

    Discount is of the best in the retail industry. Training is based on STAR principles which provide a lot of knowledge in costumer service that can be applied in many situations. They have flexible positions, and their work policies are very comprehensive.

    Cons

    Retail can be quite exhausting, breaks could have been implemented better, for the discount you must open a Macys account or have a prepaid account

    Advice to Management

    Value your good employees, that is how you build a strong team. Not everyone is the same, do not treat everyone with a blind eye.
