    Did I mention the forceful pushing of Macy's credit cards..?

    Advice to Management

    Associates know their on a credit quota - if continuous failure to meet quotas occur, then there's an understood need for coaching. However reminding associates 40 times in a 10 hr. shift is not only excessive- but irritating - and tyranny drives associates towards rebellion.

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

    Pros

    Everyone from management to fellow employees were friendly, supportive, and helpful throughout the way. They were all welcoming and we were all able to work in a team. Good benefits from employee discounts, to extra employee discounts every month, and more. There seems to be a room to grow for more permanent employees unlike myself (who is a college student and works whenever I go back home).

    Cons

    Attendance balance spiked up last year from starting off with 4 credits to 9 credits. I think the employees already there may feel like it's unfair since the point system is kind of difficult and they had to go through the concept of only having 4 points in the beginning. So it may give the newer employees more time to miss work.
